When you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP - a unique number that's used to detect every device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name that you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. Since there are many more sites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use the same IP for multiple sites even in case they are owned by different users. Even though this doesn't affect the site performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly boost the loading speed of a particular site, providing it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you would like to protect the payment or login data that your website visitors type in, you will need an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting

With a web hosting account on our cloud platform, you are able to get a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a few clicks regardless of where your account is - in the United States, Britain or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains area of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're assigned to. If you want to use an SSL certificate so as to secure the info of your site visitors and you get it through us, our system can assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you won't have to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you may still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a community forum where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for example.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP address takes just a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you have not had a hosting account before, you won't have any difficulties to obtain and assign a dedicated IP. Each domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP 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 free or you are already using it. In case that you wish to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you're able to select everything to be installed automatically. When you use this particular feature, our system will change the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll install the certificate within minutes, so you won't need to do anything on your end except for authorizing the SSL request through e-mail.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

Our Linux VPS service feature one dedicated IP by default and if you get a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, DirectAdmin, cPanel) during the registration process, you'll acquire an extra one too at no extra cost. You're able to employ them as you see fit - to access website content, to manage a web application, to install an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any website which you have and use the latter for any other website that you plan to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you can take care of all the plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain name registrations will enable you to order extra dedicated IPs in case you need them for any purpose. A couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you can use them straight away.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Since our dedicated servers offer 3 dedicated IP addresses as part of the plans as standard, we'll give you a head start if you'd like to run any software which needs this kind of an IP. We supply them absolutely free and you can use them for as long as you use your server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain which you host, an SSL certificate for any site on your server, a software server (games, VOIP), etcetera. From the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll obtain to manage renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you'll also be able to get more dedicated IP addresses in sets of three at any time. They will be assigned to your server within minutes, so that you can start using them for your websites and web-based applications right away.
