When you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - an exclusive number that is used to distinguish any device connected to the Internet. The domain name that you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Considering that there are far more websites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use the very same IP for many different websites even if they are owned by different users. Even though this doesn't affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a given website, granting it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so if you wish to secure the payment or login data that your site visitors enter, you'll need an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host your websites on our state-of-the-art cloud platform and you have a cloud website hosting package, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any moment and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. The aforementioned option is accessible in all of the data center facilities where we supply services - Chicago (US), London (UK) and Sydney (AU), so regardless of your choice during the registration process, you will be able to get a dedicated IP address for your websites. You will be able to add / remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any moment. In case any of the IPs that you purchase will be used for an SSL certificate, you could activate the automatic configuration feature 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 for various websites as well if it is not in use by an SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP takes only a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even if you have not had a hosting account previously, you will not encounter any kind of difficulties to order and assign a dedicated IP address. Each domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP address in place of the server's shared one and you are able to make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you can also find all IPs that your websites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is free or you're already using it. If you'd like to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you'll be able to select everything to be set up automatically. With this feature, our system will modify 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 shall not need to do anything on your end other than approving the SSL order via e-mail.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

Our VPS servers come with one dedicated IP address by default and in case you pick a hosting Control Panel (cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia) during the signup process, you will acquire an additional one too free of charge. You will be able to use them as you see fit - to access web content, to run a web application, to install an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain which you have and use the latter for any other website that you need to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you're able to manage all plan renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations will allow you to order extra dedicated IP addresses in case you need them for any purpose. Just a couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you'll be able to use them right away.

As our Linux dedicated servers feature 3 dedicated IP addresses included in the plans as standard, we will give you a head start in case you want to run any application that needs such an IP. We provide them cost-free and you'll be able to use them for as long as you use your server for anything you'd like - child name servers for any domain name which you host, an SSL certificate for any site on your server, a software server (online games, VOIP), etcetera. Using the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll receive to manage renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you will also be able to buy more dedicated IP addresses in sets of three at any moment. They will be assigned to your server in minutes, so you can start using them for your sites and web-based applications right away.
