If you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP address - a unique number that's used to identify a device connected to the Web. The website name that you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Since there're a lot more sites than IPs, shared hosting servers use a single IP for multiple sites even if they belong to several users. While this doesn't affect the site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a given site, granting it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you want to protect the payment or login details that your website visitors submit, you'll need an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

When you use some of our cloud hosting packages, you can add a dedicated IP address 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've selected for your account throughout the registration process, thus it's possible to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce site, for example, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can edit each domain or subdomain separately through the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL through us, you're able to use our auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the site where you want to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, will make it very easy to purchase a dedicated IP address and use it for any site that you have in your account irrespective of whether it's under a domain or a subdomain. With only a couple of clicks you are able to order the IP and once our system assigns it, you will be able to set it for one or more sites through the Hosted Domains area of the Control Panel. In the same place you can also see what IP is used by each and every domain or subdomain, an index of the dedicated IPs as well as if and what website they are assigned to? In case the IP you will need is for an SSL certificate, you will be able to take full advantage of our user-friendly SSL wizard which will make the whole process very simple as it'll request and assign an IP to the preferred domain/subdomain and then install the SSL without any action on your side other than placing your order.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

If you obtain a VPS server from our company, you will be given one dedicated IP address as standard and an extra one if you get a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You can use the IP addresses for any purpose - a website, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you are able to use to point to your VPS any website that you wish to host. In addition, you can add more dedicated IP addresses to the VPS account when you need them. This can be done from the billing Control Panel that you'll receive so as to control renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations and it takes just a few clicks. Soon after you send your order, the extra IP addresses will be available, so you can use them as you see fit.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All of the dedicated web hosting plans that we provide feature 3 dedicated IP addresses by default and cost-free. You will be able to use them for any purpose based on the content that you've got on your server - a video 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 customers may use to point domains to their web hosting accounts, etceterra. You'll also be able to acquire more dedicated IP addresses from the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones which come with the plan. You are able to buy the IPs in sets of three and they will be added to your dedicated server shortly after you submit your order, so that you can start using them without any delays.
