If you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - an exclusive number which is used to detect a device connected to the Internet. The website name that you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. Due to the fact that there are many more sites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use a single IP for multiple websites even in case they belong to separate users. Even though this does not affect your website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly improve the loading speed of a given website, granting it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you want to protect the payment or login information that your website visitors enter, you need an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

When you use a cloud hosting account on our cloud platform, you are able to obtain a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a few clicks wherever your account is - in the United States, Britain or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains area of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they're assigned to. When you would like to use an SSL certificate to secure the info of your site visitors and you get it through our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you won't need to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you can still have a website in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a discussion board where users can share opinions about your services, for instance.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you get a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will get the option to get as many dedicated IP addresses as you need depending on the needs you have. It takes a couple of clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel to purchase your new IP and a few more to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is very simple and your site will start loading from the new IP address in no time. Hepsia will enable you to view all IP addresses which you'll be able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. If you would like to use an SSL certificate on any of your websites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you may take advantage of our SSL order wizard, that will assign a new IP and set up the certificate the moment you send your order, so you don't need to modify anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account manually.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

If you obtain a VPS server from us, you'll receive one dedicated IP address by default and an extra one in case you get a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You can use the IP addresses for any kind of purpose - an Internet site, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you're able to use to point to your VPS any domain name which you wish to host. In addition, you can add more dedicated IP addresses to the VPS account when you need them. This can be done from the billing Control Panel that you'll obtain to manage renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations and it will take just a few clicks. Shortly after you send your order, the added IP addresses will be at your disposal, so you are able to use them as you see fit.
