When you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP - a special number that is used to identify any device connected to the Internet. The website name that you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. As there're a lot more sites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use a single IP for a variety of websites even if they belong to several users. While this does not affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly improve the loading speed of a site, providing it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you would like to protect the payment or login info that your site visitors enter, you'll need an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting

With a shared web hosting account on our cloud platform, you will be able to obtain a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks wherever your account is - in the United States, Great Britain or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains section of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they are allotted to. If you wish to use an SSL certificate to secure the information of your visitors and you get it from us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not need to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you can still have a website in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP address - a community forum where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for example.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you'll get the option to acquire as many dedicated IPs as you'd like depending on your preferences. It takes just a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel to order your new IP plus several more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is really easy and your website will start loading from the new IP address very quickly. Hepsia will allow you to view all IP addresses that you are able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. If you would like to use an SSL certificate on some of your sites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you may take advantage of our SSL order wizard, that will assign a new IP and install the certificate once you submit your order, so you do not need to change anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account manually.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

All of the Linux VPS servers that we supply feature a dedicated IP, so you won't share your IP with another client with an account on the same machine. If you choose a web hosting Control Panel for the server during the registration process, you'll receive an extra dedicated IP as well and you'll be able to use it for any content which you host on your VPS - a website, an application, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, and so on. In case you would like to have more IP addresses, you can order them as an additional upgrade using your billing Control Panel and they will be assigned to your server in a matter of minutes. You will be able to take care of your IPs without difficulty from your hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel that you will receive to maintain the virtual machine.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All Linux dedicated web hosting plans that we supply come with three dedicated IP addresses by default and free of charge. You are able to use them for any purpose depending 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 site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your clients can use to point domain names to their website hosting accounts, and many more. You will also be able to get additional dedicated IPs from the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones which come with your server. You can obtain the IPs in groups of three and they shall be added to your dedicated server soon after you send your order, so that you can start using them with no delays.
