When you host a site on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP - a unique number that's used to identify any device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name which you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. Considering that there are a lot more websites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use the very same IP for multiple sites even if they are owned by different users. While this does not affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a given website, providing it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you want to secure the payment or login info that your site visitors type in, you should have an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting

In case you host your websites on our outstanding cloud platform and you have a shared web hosting plan, you're able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with only a few clicks. This option is accessible in all data centers where we provide services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so irrespective of your choice throughout the registration process, you're able to obtain a dedicated IP address for your sites. You will be able to add or remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any time. If any of the IPs that you buy 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 installs your certificate automatically. Our adaptable platform will enable you to use a dedicated IP address for multiple sites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia Control Panel, that is supplied with our semi-dedicated server packages, will make it really easy to acquire a dedicated IP address and use it for any site that you have in your account no matter if it is under a domain or a subdomain. With just a few clicks you'll be able to order the IP and once our system assigns it, you'll be able to set it for one or multiple sites via the Hosted Domains area of the Control Panel. In the same location you'll also be able to see what IP is used by each domain or subdomain, a long list of the dedicated IPs as well as if and what website they're assigned to? Provided the IP you need is for an SSL certificate, you'll be able to take advantage of our user-friendly SSL wizard that will make the overall process really easy because it will request and assign an IP to the desired domain/subdomain and then set up the SSL without any action on your side apart from placing the order.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Since all of our dedicated servers feature 3 dedicated IP addresses included in the plans by default, we will give you a serious advantage if you want to run any application that needs such an IP. We supply them cost-free and you're able to use them for as long as you use the server for anything you'd like - child name servers for any domain which you host, an SSL certificate for any site on the server, a software server (online games, VOIP), etc. Through the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll obtain to control renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you will also be able to buy more dedicated IP addresses in groups of three at any moment. They'll be assigned to your server in no time, so you can start using them for your sites and web-based apps without delay.
