When you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP address - a unique number that's used to detect every device connected to the Internet. The website name which you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Because there're a lot more websites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for many different sites even in case they belong to several users. While this does not affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly improve the loading speed of a particular site, giving it better 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 information that your site visitors type in, you need an IP along with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you host your sites on our reliable cloud platform and you have a cloud website hosting package, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with only a couple of clicks. The aforementioned option is available in all the data center facilities where we offer services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so whatever your choice during the registration process, you're able to get a dedicated IP for your sites. You can add / remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any time. In case any of the IPs that you obtain will be used for an SSL certificate, you may enable the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard and our system will request and assign the IP before it sets up your certificate automatically. Our adaptable platform will allow you to use a dedicated IP for multiple sites as well if it is not in use by an SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP address takes no more than a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even when you haven't had a hosting account before, you will not have any kind of difficulties to order and assign a dedicated IP address. Any domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP address other than the server's shared one and you will be able to make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you can also see all IPs that your websites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is free or you are already using it. If you wish to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you are able to select everything to be set up automatically. When you use this particular feature, our system will change the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will set up your certificate in a matter of minutes, so you will not have to do anything on your end other than approving the SSL order through electronic mail.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS

In case you purchase a virtual private server from our company, you will get one dedicated IP address automatically and an extra one in case you obtain a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You'll be able to use the IPs for any purpose - a site, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you'll be able to use to point to your VPS any domain that you intend to host. You can also add more dedicated IPs to the VPS account every time you need them. You can do this from the billing Control Panel that you will get to take care of renewals, upgrade purchases and domain name registrations and it will take no more than a couple of clicks. Shortly after you upload your order, the extra IP addresses will be available, so you will be able to use them the way you like.

If you get a dedicated server, you probably plan to run a web application or host a number of sites, so we provide 3 dedicated IPs gratis with every single package and you'll be able to use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name which you have registered here or through another company. The last option is very helpful in case you use your dedicated server to host clients' sites as it will give you credibility and anonymity as a website hosting company. The server billing Control Panel will allow you to add more IP addresses as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes just a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, which means that you can go ahead and employ your new dedicated IPs just a couple of minutes after you submit your order.
