When you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a special number which is used to detect every 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 more basic level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Considering that there are a lot more websites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for a variety of sites even in case they belong to different users. Even though this does not affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a given site, providing it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you plan to secure the payment or login info that your website visitors type in, you need an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting

Using a cloud website hosting account on our cloud platform, you can obtain a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a couple of clicks wherever your account is - in the US, the United Kingdom or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains area of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they are allotted to. When you wish to use an SSL certificate in order to protect the information of your website visitors and you acquire it from our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you won't need to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you may still have a website in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion forum where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for instance.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP address takes no more than a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even when you haven't had a web hosting account before, you will not encounter any difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP address. Any 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 in the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also view all IPs that your websites can use and if a dedicated IP is free or you're already using it. In case that you want an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you are able to select everything to be set up automatically. When you use this particular feature, our system will modify the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll set up the certificate within a matter of minutes, so you will not need to do anything on your end except for approving the SSL order via email.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Hosting

In case you buy a virtual private server from us, you'll get one dedicated IP address automatically and an extra one when you obtain a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You can use the IPs for any kind of purpose - a site, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you'll be able to use to point to your VPS any website that you wish to host. Additionally, you can add more dedicated IP addresses to the VPS account any time you need them. You can do this through the billing Control Panel that you will receive in order to take care of renewals, upgrades and domain registrations and it takes only a few clicks. Shortly after you submit your order, the added IP addresses will be available, so you're able to use them as you see fit.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you get a dedicated server, you probably plan to run a web app or host a lot of websites, so we supply three dedicated IPs absolutely free with every single plan and you will be able to use them the way you like - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name that you have registered here or via another company. The last mentioned option is very helpful in case you use the dedicated server to host clients' Internet sites due to the fact that it will give you authority and anonymity as a web hosting supplier. The server billing Control Panel will allow you to add additional IPs as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes only a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, which means that you're able to go ahead and take advantage of your new dedicated IP addresses just a few minutes after you submit your order.
