When you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - a special number which is used to identify a device connected to the Net. The domain name which you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Since there are far more sites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use the same IP for multiple websites even in case they belong to different users. Even though this doesn't affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a certain website, giving it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when 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 Web Hosting

If you use any of our web hosting plans, you can add a dedicated IP address to your account without any difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've chosen for your account throughout the sign-up process, therefore you will be able to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce website, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can modify each domain or subdomain independently through the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL through our company, you can use our auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you'd like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which is supplied with our semi-dedicated server packages, will make it very easy to buy a dedicated IP and use it for each site that you have in your account irrespective of whether it is under a domain or a subdomain. With just a couple of clicks you will be able to order the IP and as soon as our system assigns it, you will be able to set it for one or multiple sites from the Hosted Domains part of the Control Panel. In the same location you'll also be able to see what IP is used by each domain or subdomain, an index of the dedicated IPs as well as if and what website they're assigned to? If the IP you'll need is for an SSL certificate, you will be able to take full advantage of our helpful SSL wizard which will make the entire process very simple since it will request and assign an IP to the preferred domain/subdomain and then install the SSL without the need of any action on your side aside from placing your order.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Hosting

Our Linux VPS hosting provide you with one dedicated IP address as standard and if you order a website hosting Control Panel (cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia) during the registration process, you'll get an additional one as well free of charge. You will be able to employ them the way you like - to access web content, to run a web application, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain that you have and use the latter for any other website that you intend to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you can take care of all plan renewals, upgrades and domain registrations will enable you to order more dedicated IP addresses if you need them for any purpose. A couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you will be able to use them instantly.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting

Since it's possible to run almost anything on a dedicated server, all our packages come with 3 dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you need to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you will be able to use the IPs that we provide without charge. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any website name that you've registered through us or elsewhere then employ them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. When you manage a web hosting company, for instance, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as an independent supplier. In case you need more IP addresses than the three our packages provide you with, you're able to get extra ones in increments of three either throughout the signup process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
