When you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a special number that is used to identify every device connected to the Internet. The domain name that you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Considering that there're many more sites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for a number of sites even in case they are owned by several users. Even though this does not affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a site, providing it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you wish to secure the payment or login info that your site visitors enter, you'll need an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting

Using a shared web hosting account on our cloud platform, you will be able to get a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks wherever your account is - in the USA, Great Britain or Australia. This is done from the Hosted Domains area of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they are assigned to. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate to protect the info of your visitors and you obtain it from our company, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you can still have a site in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP - a message board where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for instance.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account through us, you'll have the opportunity to obtain as many dedicated IP addresses as you would like depending on your business needs. It will take a few clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to obtain your new IP and a couple of more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is very simple and your site will start opening from your new IP address within minutes. Hepsia will enable you to see all the IP addresses that you'll be able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. If you want to use an SSL certificate on some of your sites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you can take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, which will assign a new IP and set up the certificate once you submit your order, so you won't need to adjust anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account manually.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Hosting

All the VPS hosting that we supply come with a dedicated IP, so you won't share your IP with another client with some other account on the very same server. If you select a web hosting Control Panel for the server during the registration process, you will receive an additional dedicated IP as well and you are able to use it for any content which you host on the VPS - a website, an app, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, etcetera. In case you would like to have more IPs, you can order them as an extra upgrade via your billing Control Panel and they'll be assigned to your server in a matter of minutes. You'll be able to manage the IPs without any difficulty through your web hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel which you'll get to control the virtual machine.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting

All dedicated servers hosting packages that we supply include three dedicated IP addresses as standard and for free. You'll be able to use them for any type of purpose depending on the content that you have on the server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your clients may use to direct domains to their website hosting accounts, and many other things. You will also be able to order extra dedicated IP addresses through the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones which come with your server. You will be able to get the IPs in sets of three and they will be added to your dedicated server shortly after you send your order, which means that you can use them without any delays.
