When you host a website on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP - a unique number that's used to distinguish a device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name which you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. Due to the fact that there are many more websites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use the same IP for a variety of sites even if they belong to different users. While this doesn't affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly improve the loading speed of a given website, providing it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you wish to protect the payment or login data that your site visitors submit, you need an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

When you use some of our cloud hosting plans, you can add a dedicated IP to your account in no time and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have selected for your account throughout the sign-up process, which means that you'll be able to take 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 domain or subdomain independently through the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL through us, you're able to use our auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the site where you'd like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With only a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to add one or several dedicated IP addresses to your Linux semi-dedicated hosting package and assign them to your websites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will help you find the available IPs and to check the ones which are in use in no time. Provided you wish to obtain a new IP for an SSL certificate, you will be able to use the auto-configuration function, that is available in our SSL order wizard. When you enable this feature, you won't have to do anything after you submit your order because our system will request a dedicated IP address, assign it to the domain or subdomain in question, and then install the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without any action on your end. In this way, you'll be able to shield the details that visitors post on your website even when you lack previous experience with this type of matters.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Since our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages feature three dedicated IP addresses provided in the plans by default, we'll give you a head start in case you'd like to run any application which needs such an IP. We provide them free of charge and you'll be able to use them for as long as you use the server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain name that you host, an SSL certificate for any site on your server, a software server (games, VOIP), etcetera. Using the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll obtain to manage renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you can also get more dedicated IP addresses in groups of three whenever you need. They'll be assigned to your server in minutes, so that you can start using them for your websites and web-based applications without delay.
