When you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - a special number that is used to distinguish any device connected to the Web. The website name that you use for the site is for quick 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 far more websites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use a single IP for many different websites even in case they are owned by separate users. Even though this does not affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a certain site, granting it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so if you want to secure the payment or login data that your website visitors enter, you will need an IP along with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

We offer dedicated IPs with all our cloud plans irrespective of the data center location and you are able to purchase one or several IPs through your Hepsia Control Panel. An extra section will appear as part of your account and you can request, delete or view your IPs with just a couple of clicks. You're able to choose how many websites or subdomains will use a certain IP as you can assign one with a few clicks to every hostname. For example, www.domain.com can be the main website, that uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be the subdomain where you offer services or goods online and it can have a dedicated IP in addition to an SSL certificate. You can change the IP which a site uses through the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You may also set a few of your websites to use the same dedicated IP as long as there is no SSL activated for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP takes just a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even when you haven't had a web hosting account previously, you will not encounter any kind of difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP. Each domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP address rather than the server's shared one and you're able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you will also find all IPs that your sites can use and if a dedicated IP is available or you're already using it. In case that you need an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you will be able to select everything to be set up automatically. When you use this particular feature, our system will modify the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll install the certificate within a matter of minutes, so you won't have to do anything on your end other than authorizing the SSL order via electronic mail.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

As our dedicated web hosting plans come with three dedicated IP addresses as part of the plans as standard, we will give you a head start in case you'd like to run any app which requires this kind of an IP. We supply them for free and you are able to use them for as long as you use your server for anything you'd like - child name servers for any domain name which you host, an SSL certificate for any site on your server, a software server (games, VOIP), etc. From the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll receive to take care of renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you'll also be able to order more dedicated IP addresses in sets of three whenever you want. They will be assigned to your server in no time, so that you can start using them for your websites and web-based applications without delay.
