When you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP address - a special number that is used to detect any kind of device connected to the Net. The website name that you use for the site is for easy accessibility 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 IPs, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for several websites even in case they belong to different users. While this doesn't affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly improve the loading speed of a website, giving it higher 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 submit, you should have an IP along with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting

When you use any of our cloud website hosting plans, you can add a dedicated IP to your account without any difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have picked for the account during the signup process, so you'll be able to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can edit each and every domain or subdomain independently from the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL through our company, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you wish to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

With just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel, you can add one or a variety of dedicated IP addresses to your Linux semi-dedicated server and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will allow you to find the available IP addresses and to check those which are in use with ease. Provided you would like to get a new IP for an SSL certificate, you will be able to use the auto-configuration function, that's available in our SSL order wizard. When you enable this option, you will not have to do anything after you send in your order because our system will request a dedicated IP address, assign it to the domain or subdomain involved, then set up the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without any action on your end. That way, you'll be able to shield the info that visitors submit on your website even when you do not have any previous experience with this type of matters.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All Linux dedicated web hosting plans that we provide come with three dedicated IP addresses as standard and for free. You'll be able to use them for any purpose based on the content that you have on the server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your clients may use to redirect domains to their web hosting accounts, etc. What's more, you can purchase extra dedicated IP addresses from the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones that come with the server. You are able to obtain the IPs in groups of three and they will be added to your dedicated server soon after you send your order, so you can start using them without delays.
