If you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP - an exclusive number that is used to detect a device connected to the Web. The website name which you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. As there are a lot more websites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use the same IP for multiple websites even in case they are owned by several users. While this doesn't affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly improve the loading speed of a website, providing it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you want to protect the payment or login data that your site visitors enter, you will need an IP alongside the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting
If you use some of our web hosting plans, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account without difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've chosen for the account during the signup process, thus it's possible to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can edit each and every domain or subdomain independently from the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL through us, you can use the auto-configuration tool, 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 Servers
When you purchase a semi-dedicated server account through us, you have the option to get as many dedicated IP addresses as you need depending on your needs. It takes just a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel to order your new IP plus a few more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The entire process is very easy and your website will start loading from your new IP address within minutes. Hepsia will allow you to see all of the IPs that you can use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. Provided you want to use an SSL certificate on some of your sites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you can take advantage of our SSL order wizard, which can assign a new IP and set up the certificate as soon as you upload your order, so you will not need to adjust anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account by yourself.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
Our VPS hosting plans feature one dedicated IP as standard and in case you pick a web hosting Control Panel (cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia) during the registration process, you'll acquire an extra one too for free. You can employ them as you see fit - to access web content, to manage a web app, to install 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 wish to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you are able to manage all the plan renewals, upgrades and domain registrations will enable you to order extra dedicated IPs in case you need them for any purpose. Just a few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you will be able to use them right away.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
All the dedicated web hosting plans that we provide have 3 dedicated IP addresses by default and cost-free. You'll be able to employ them for any kind of purpose depending on 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 which your customers may use to point domains to their website hosting accounts, and many more. You'll also be able to obtain additional dedicated IP addresses via the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones which come with the plan. You will be able to obtain the IPs in sets of three and they shall be added to your dedicated server shortly after you submit your order, which means that you can start using them with no delays.
