If you host a website on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - an exclusive number that's used to identify a device connected to the Net. The website name that you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. Because there're a lot more websites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use the very same IP for several websites even if they are owned by separate users. Even though this does not affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a particular site, granting it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you wish to protect the payment or login information that your website visitors submit, you should have an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

We supply dedicated IP addresses with all our shared hosting regardless of the data center location and you're able to acquire one or several IPs using your Hepsia Control Panel. A new section will appear as part of your account and you'll be able to request, view or delete your IPs with a few clicks. You'll be able to choose how many domains or subdomains will use a given IP since you can assign one with a couple of clicks to every hostname. To give an example, www.domain.com can be the main website, that uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be your subdomain where you offer services or goods on the internet and it could have a dedicated IP together with an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP which a site uses through the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You can also set a few of your websites to use one and the same dedicated IP provided that there is no SSL set up for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP takes no more than a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even when you have not had a website hosting account before, you won't experience any kind of difficulties to obtain and assign a dedicated IP. Every domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP address in place of the server's shared one and you are able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you will also see all IPs that your sites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is accessible or you're already using it. If you want an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you'll be able to select everything to be set up automatically. When you use this particular feature, our system will change the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will set up the certificate within a matter of minutes, so you won't have to do anything on your end other than authorizing your SSL request via electronic mail.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS

If you buy a virtual private server from our company, you'll get a dedicated IP address automatically and another one in case you acquire a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You will be able to use the IP addresses for any sort of purpose - a site, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you are able to use to point to your VPS any domain name that you intend to host. You can even add more dedicated IPs to your VPS account any time you need them. This can be done via the billing Control Panel that you'll acquire to control renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it will take no more than a couple of clicks. Soon after you submit your order, the additional IP addresses will be available, so you're able to use them as you see fit.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting

All of the Linux dedicated hosting services that we offer feature three dedicated IP addresses as standard and for free. You're able to employ them for any type of purpose according to the content that you've got on your server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your clients can use to direct domains to their hosting accounts, and many more. You can also get more dedicated IP addresses from the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones that come with the plan. You can get the IPs in sets of three and they will be added to your dedicated server right after you submit your order, so you can start using them without delays.
