When you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP address - a special number which is used to distinguish any kind of device connected to the Web. The domain name which you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. As there are many more sites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for many different websites even in case they belong to several users. Even though this doesn't affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a website, giving it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so when you want to secure the payment or login details that your website visitors submit, you will need an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting

In case you host your sites on our outstanding cloud platform and you have a website hosting plan, you are able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any moment and assign it to any domain or subdomain with only a couple of clicks. The aforementioned option is accessible in all of the data center facilities where we offer services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so irrespective of your choice throughout the registration process, you'll be able to acquire a dedicated IP for your sites. You'll be able to add or remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any time. If any of the IPs that you acquire will be used for an SSL certificate, you can activate the automatic configuration attribute in our SSL order wizard and our system will request and assign the IP before it sets up the certificate automatically. Our adaptable platform will enable you to use a dedicated IP address for multiple websites as well if it is not in use by an SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel, you can add one or a variety of dedicated IP addresses to your Linux semi-dedicated hosting and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains section of Hepsia will help you view the available IPs and to monitor those which are in use with ease. In case you want to get a new IP for an SSL certificate, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration function, that is available in our SSL order wizard. If you enable this feature, you will not need to do anything after you submit your order as our system will request a dedicated IP address, assign it to the domain or subdomain involved, then set up the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. This way, you will be able to protect the details that visitors post on your site even when you do not have any previous experience with this type of matters.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Hosting

If you acquire a virtual private server from our company, you'll have one dedicated IP address automatically and a second one in case you acquire a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You are able to use the IPs for any kind of purpose - a site, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you'll be able to use to point to your VPS any domain name which you plan to host. Also, you can add extra dedicated IPs to your VPS account any time you need them. This can be done through the billing Control Panel that you'll receive to manage renewals, upgrade purchases and domain name registrations and it will take no more than a few clicks. Soon after you post your order, the added IP addresses will be accessible, so you're able to use them the way you like.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting

As it is possible to run almost anything on a dedicated server, all our plans feature 3 dedicated IP addresses included by default. If you want to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you are able to use the IPs that we provide without charge. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you've registered through our company or elsewhere and then use them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. If you manage a web hosting company, for instance, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone provider. When you need more IP addresses than the three our plans come with, you'll be able to buy additional ones in increments of 3 either during the registration process or through your billing Control Panel any time.
