When you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - a unique number that's used to identify every device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name that 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 of the server. Since there're a lot more sites than IPs, shared hosting servers use the very same IP for multiple sites even in case they belong to several users. Even though this does not affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a particular site, granting it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you want to protect the payment or login info that your website visitors submit, you'll need an IP together with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting
If you use any of our web hosting plans, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account in no time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've chosen for the account throughout the sign-up process, so you'll be able to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce website, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can adjust each and every domain or subdomain individually through the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL from our company, you're able to use our auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you would like to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with our semi-dedicated server packages, will make it very easy to get a dedicated IP address and use it for any site that you have in the account regardless if it is under a domain or a subdomain. With only a couple of clicks you're able to order the IP and as soon as our system assigns it, you will be able to set it for one or several sites from the Hosted Domains section of the Control Panel. In the same place you'll also be able to find what IP is used by each and every domain or subdomain, a list of the dedicated IP addresses as well as if and what website they are assigned to? If the IP you'll need is for an SSL certificate, you'll be able to take advantage of our helpful SSL wizard that will make the whole process super easy as it'll request and assign an IP to the preferred domain/subdomain and after that install the SSL without any action on your side other than placing your order.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All VPS servers that we provide include a dedicated IP address, so you won't share the IP with some other client with another account on the same physical machine. In case you select a hosting Control Panel for the server during the signup process, you will receive a second dedicated IP too and you are able to use it for any content which you host on the VPS - a website, an application, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, etcetera. In case you would like to have more IP addresses, you will be able to order them as an additional upgrade through your billing Control Panel and they will be assigned to your server very quickly. You will be able to control the IPs without any difficulty from your website hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel which you'll receive to maintain the virtual machine.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
All the dedicated servers that we offer feature three dedicated IP addresses as standard and absolutely free. You can employ them for any type of purpose depending on the content that you have on your server - an online game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your clients may use to redirect domains to their hosting accounts, and many more. You'll also be able to get additional dedicated IP addresses through the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones which come with the plan. You will be able to buy the IPs in sets of three and they shall be added to your dedicated server soon after you submit your order, so you can start using them with no delays.
