If you host a website on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - an exclusive number that is used to distinguish a device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name that you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Since there are many more sites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use the same IP for many different websites even in case they are owned by different users. While this does not affect your website performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a site, providing it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you would like to protect the payment or login info that your site visitors type in, you will need an IP alongside the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Web Hosting
If you use some of our cloud web hosting plans, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account with ease and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have picked for your account throughout the registration process, which means that you are able to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce site, for example, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can edit each and every domain or subdomain individually from the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL through us, you will be able to use the auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you'd like to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP address takes just a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you have not had a web hosting account before, you won't experience any kind of difficulties to obtain and assign a dedicated IP address. Any domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP as an alternative to the server's shared one and you are able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you can also find all IPs that your websites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is accessible or you're already using it. If you need an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you are able to select everything to be installed automatically. With this particular feature, our system will change the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll install your certificate in a couple of minutes, so you shall not need to do anything on your end apart from authorizing your SSL request via e-mail.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS
Our Linux VPS packages include one dedicated IP by default and if you choose a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, DirectAdmin, cPanel) during the registration process, you'll get an extra one too free of cost. You're able to use them as you decide - to access web content, to manage a web app, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain name that you have and use the latter for any other domain that you plan to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you are able to manage all the plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain name registrations will allow you to order extra dedicated IPs in case you need them for any purpose. A couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you'll be able to use them instantly.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting
All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we offer include three dedicated IP addresses as standard and for free. You are able to use them for any purpose according to the content that you have on your server - a 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 domains to their hosting accounts, etc. You can also obtain additional dedicated IP addresses through the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones which come with the server. You will be able to obtain the IPs in sets of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server right after you send your order, so you can start using them with no delays.
