If you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP address - a unique number that is used to distinguish a device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name that you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Because there are a lot more sites than IPs, shared hosting servers use the same IP for multiple websites even if they are owned by several users. While this doesn't affect the site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly enhance the loading speed of a particular website, providing it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so if you want to protect the payment or login information that your website visitors type in, you should have an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

When you use some of our cloud hosting packages, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account with ease and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you've selected for the account throughout the signup process, therefore it's possible to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for example, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can modify each domain or subdomain independently from the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL through our company, you will be able to use our auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the site where you'd like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP takes only a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you have not had a website hosting account previously, you won't experience any difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP. Any domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP address in place of the server's shared one and you can make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you will also view all IPs that your sites can use and if a dedicated IP is free or you're already using it. If you want an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you will be able to select everything to be set up automatically. With this feature, our system will modify the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll set up the certificate in a couple of minutes, so you won't need to do anything on your end except for authorizing the SSL order via electronic mail.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

All of our Linux VPS servers feature one dedicated IP by default and when you obtain a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, DirectAdmin, cPanel) throughout the registration process, you will get an extra one as well absolutely free. You'll be able to employ them as you decide - to access web content, to manage a web application, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any website that you have and use the latter for any other website that you want to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you're able to take care of all the plan renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations will enable you to order more dedicated IPs in case you need them for any purpose. Just a couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you will be able to use them immediately.

They'll be assigned to your server within minutes, so you can start using them for your sites and web-based apps without delay.
