If you host a website on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - a special number that's used to detect any device connected to the Internet. The domain name which you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. As there're a lot more websites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use the same IP for multiple websites even if they are owned by separate users. While this doesn't affect the site performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly boost the loading speed of a certain site, giving it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so if you would like to protect the payment or login data that your website visitors type in, you should have an IP along with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting

Using a web hosting account on our cloud platform, you will be able to buy a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a few clicks wherever your account is - in the United States, Britain or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains part of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they are allotted to. When you would like to use an SSL certificate to protect the info of your site visitors and you obtain it from our company, our system will assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you will not need to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you may still have a website in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion forum where users can share opinions about your services, for instance.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

With just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to add one or several dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated server and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will help you see the available IPs and to check those which are in use in no time. In case you want to obtain a new IP for an SSL certificate, you will be able to use the auto-configuration function, which is available in our SSL order wizard. When you enable this feature, you won't need to do anything after you post your order since our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain involved, then set up the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. In this way, you can protect the info that visitors submit on your site even when you lack previous experience with this type of matters.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

All of our VPS servers include one dedicated IP as standard and when you order a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, DirectAdmin, cPanel) during the registration process, you will acquire an additional one as well for free. You'll be able to employ them the way you like - to access website content, to manage a web app, to install an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain name that you have and use the latter for any other website that you'd like to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you can control all plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain name registrations will allow you to order more dedicated IP addresses if you need them for any purpose. A few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you can use them right away.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Since all of our dedicated servers offer three dedicated IP addresses as part of the plans by default, we will give you a head start in case you'd like to run any software which needs this kind of an IP. We provide them cost-free and you will be able to use them for as long as you use your server for anything you'd like - child name servers for any domain name that you host, an SSL certificate for any site on the server, a software server (games, VOIP), and so on. Through the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll obtain to manage renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you will also be able to buy more dedicated IPs in sets of three at any time. They'll be assigned to your server very quickly, so that you can start using them for your websites and web-based applications without delay.
