When you host a site on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP - a special number which is used to detect any device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name which you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. Since there're many more sites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for many different websites even in case they are owned by different users. While this doesn't affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly boost the loading speed of a particular website, giving it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you would like to protect the payment or login details that your website visitors type in, you need an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting

If you host your websites on our state-of-the-art cloud platform and you have a shared web hosting plan, you can add a dedicated IP to your account at any moment and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. The aforementioned option is accessible in all of the data centers where we offer services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so whatever your choice during the registration process, you can obtain a dedicated IP for your websites. You will be able to add / remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any moment. In case any of the IPs that you obtain will be used for an SSL certificate, you could activate the automatic configuration attribute in our SSL order wizard and our system will request and assign the IP before it sets up the certificate automatically. Our versatile platform will allow you to use a dedicated IP for various sites as well if it is not in use by an SSL.

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 multiple dedicated IP addresses to your Linux semi-dedicated service and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will allow you to view the available IP addresses and to keep track of those that are in use with ease. In case you want to acquire a new IP for an SSL certificate, you're able to use the auto-configuration function, that is available in our SSL order wizard. When you activate this feature, you won't have to do anything after you send in your order because our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain in question, and then add the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. That way, you are able to secure the details that visitors submit on your website even if you do not have any previous experience with this type of matters.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Web Hosting

All of our VPS web hosting services come with one dedicated IP as standard and when you obtain a website hosting Control Panel (DirectAdmin, cPanel, Hepsia) during the registration process, you'll get a second one too free of cost. You are able to employ them the way you like - to access website content, to manage a web application, to install an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain name 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 are able to manage all the plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain registrations will enable you to order additional dedicated IP addresses in case you need them for any purpose. A couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you will be able to use them straight away.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you order a dedicated server, you probably want to run a web app or host a number of Internet sites, so we supply three dedicated IP addresses free of charge with every single plan and you are able to use them as you see fit - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain that you've registered here or via another company. The last mentioned option is really useful if you use your dedicated server to host clients' sites because it will give you credibility and anonymity as a hosting service provider. The server billing Control Panel will make it easier to add more IPs as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes only a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, so you're able to go ahead and employ the new dedicated IPs just a few minutes after you send your order.
