When you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP - a unique number that's used to detect any kind of device connected to the Internet. The domain name which 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 address of the server. As there are a lot more websites than IPs, shared hosting servers use the very same IP for a variety of websites even if they are owned by several users. Even though this doesn't affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly increase the loading speed of a particular website, providing it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you want to secure the payment or login data that your site visitors enter, you will need an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

We supply dedicated IPs with all our shared hosting regardless of the data center location and you will be able to purchase one or several IPs using your Hepsia Control Panel. An additional section will appear as part of your account and you are able to request, view or delete your IPs with a few clicks. You can choose what number of domains or subdomains will use a given IP since you can assign one with a few clicks to every hostname. To give an example, www.domain.com can be your main site, that uses a server's shared IP, while shop.domain.com can be a subdomain where you offer services or goods on the net and it could have a dedicated IP in addition to an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP which a domain uses through the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You can also set some of your sites to use the same dedicated IP provided that there is no SSL installed for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia Control Panel, that is supplied with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, will make it very simple to purchase a dedicated IP address and use it for any website that you have in the account regardless if it is under a domain or a subdomain. With just a couple of clicks you can order the IP and as soon as our system assigns it, you'll be able to set it for one or several sites via the Hosted Domains part of the Control Panel. In the same location you can also see what IP is used by each and every domain or subdomain, an index of the dedicated IPs as well as if and what website they are assigned to? In case the IP you'll need is for an SSL certificate, you can take full advantage of our user-friendly SSL wizard that will make the whole process really easy because it will request and assign an IP to the desired domain/subdomain and after that install the SSL without the need of any action on your side aside from placing your order.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

In case you get a VPS server from us, you'll receive one dedicated IP address automatically and an extra one when you acquire a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You are able to use the IPs for any sort of purpose - a site, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you are able to use to point to your VPS any website which you wish to host. Also, you can add more dedicated IPs to your VPS account any time you need them. You can do this through the billing Control Panel that you'll receive to take care of renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it will take just a couple of clicks. Shortly after you submit your order, the additional IP addresses will be at your disposal, so you are able to use them the way you like.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Since all of our dedicated servers come with three dedicated IP addresses as part of the plans as standard, we shall give you a head start if you would like to run any application that needs this kind of an IP. We supply them cost-free and you're able to use them for as long as you use your server for anything you'd like - child name servers for any domain that you host, an SSL certificate for any website on your server, a software server (online games, VOIP), etcetera. Through the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll receive to manage renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you'll also be able to buy more dedicated IP addresses in sets of three at any time. They will be assigned to your server in a few minutes, so you can start using them for your sites and web-based applications without delay.
