When you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a unique number which is used to identify any kind of device connected to the Internet. The website name which you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. As there are far more sites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use a single IP for many different websites even if they are owned by several users. While this doesn't affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly increase the loading speed of a given website, providing it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you wish to secure the payment or login details that your website visitors enter, you'll need an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

If you use some of our cloud hosting plans, you will be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account in no time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you've chosen for the account throughout the registration process, therefore you're able to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce site, for example, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can modify each domain or subdomain independently from the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL from us, you are able to use the auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you'd like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP address takes only a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you have not had a web hosting account previously, you won't encounter any kind of difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP address. Any domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP address rather than the server's shared one and you will be able to make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also find all IPs that your sites can use and if a dedicated IP is available 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. Using this particular feature, our system will change the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will set up your certificate in a couple of minutes, so you won't need to do anything on your end apart from authorizing your SSL order via electronic mail.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that we offer come with a dedicated IP address, so you won't share the IP with some other client with a different account on the very same physical machine. If you select a web hosting Control Panel for the server throughout the registration process, you'll receive an extra dedicated IP too and you're able to use it for any content that you host on the VPS - a site, an application, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, etc. In case you need more IPs, you will be able to order them as a further upgrade using your billing Control Panel and they'll be assigned to your server in a matter of minutes. You can control your IPs with ease through your website hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel that you'll obtain to control the virtual machine.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All the dedicated servers that we supply come with 3 dedicated IP addresses as standard and for free. You can use them for any kind of purpose depending on the content that you've got on the server - an online game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your clients can use to direct domains to their web hosting accounts, etc. You'll also be able to get extra dedicated IP addresses through the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones that come with your server. You are able to buy the IPs in sets of three and they shall be added to your dedicated server shortly after you submit your order, so you can use them with no delays.
