If you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a special number which is used to detect any kind of device connected to the Internet. The domain name that you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. Since there're a lot more websites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for a number of websites even if they belong to several users. Even though this does not affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a particular website, granting it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you wish to protect the payment or login info that your website visitors submit, you should have an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

We offer dedicated IP addresses with all of our shared hosting packages regardless of the data center location and you'll be able to purchase one or several IPs through your Hepsia Control Panel. A new section will appear in your account and you can request, delete or view your IPs with a couple of clicks. You're able to decide how many domains or subdomains will use a given IP since you can assign one with a couple of clicks to every hostname. To give an example, www.domain.com can be the main website, which uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be a subdomain where you offer services or goods on the internet and it might have a dedicated IP in addition to an SSL certificate. You can change 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 may also set a couple of of your sites to use the same dedicated IP provided that there is no SSL installed for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll get the option to acquire as many dedicated IPs as you like depending on the needs you have. It takes a few clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to buy a new IP plus a few more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The entire process is very easy and your website will start loading from your new IP address in minutes. Hepsia will allow you to view all IP addresses that you're able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. In case you want to use an SSL certificate on some of your sites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you may take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, which can assign a new IP and install the certificate the moment you upload your order, so you don't need to modify anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account manually.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS

All of our Linux VPS packages include one dedicated IP as standard and if you obtain a hosting Control Panel (DirectAdmin, cPanel, Hepsia) during the signup process, you'll get an extra one too free of cost. You can use them as you decide - to access web content, to run a web app, to install an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any website which you have and use the latter for any other domain that you plan to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you are able to control all plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain name registrations will enable you to order additional dedicated IPs 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 straight away.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we provide include three dedicated IP addresses as standard and absolutely free. You will be able to use them for any purpose based on the content that you've got on your server - an online game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your clients can use to point domains to their website hosting accounts, and much more. What's more, you can buy extra dedicated IP addresses through the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones which come with your plan. You're able to acquire the IPs in sets of three and they will be added to your dedicated server shortly after you submit your order, so that you can use them without any delays.
