When you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP address - a unique number that's used to distinguish any device connected to the Internet. The domain name that you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. As there're a lot more sites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use the same IP for multiple sites even in case they are owned by different users. While this doesn't affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a certain site, granting it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you would like to secure the payment or login data that your site visitors submit, you need an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

We offer dedicated IP addresses with all our shared hosting plans whatever the data center location and you will be able to obtain one or several IPs via your Hepsia Control Panel. A fresh section will appear in your account and you can request, delete or view your IPs with just a couple of clicks. You will be able to choose what number of websites or subdomains will use a particular IP since you can assign one with a couple of clicks to any hostname. For example, www.domain.com can be your main website, which uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be your subdomain where you offer goods or services on the net and it might have a dedicated IP in addition to an SSL certificate. You can change the IP which a site uses from the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You may also set a few of your websites to use the same dedicated IP provided that there's no SSL set up for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP address takes just a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you haven't had a web hosting account previously, you will not encounter any kind of difficulties to acquire and assign a dedicated IP. Every domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP instead of the server's shared one and you are able to make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you will also see all IPs that your websites can use and if a dedicated IP is free or you are already using it. In case that you need an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you can select everything to be installed automatically. When you use this particular feature, our system will modify the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will set up the certificate within a matter of minutes, so you will not need to do anything on your end except for approving the SSL request via email.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

Our VPS web hosting plans feature one dedicated IP as standard and if you select a hosting Control Panel (DirectAdmin, Hepsia, cPanel) throughout the registration process, you'll get an extra one as well free of cost. You will be able to use them as you decide - to access site content, to manage a web app, to install an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any website that you have and use the latter for any other domain that you'd like to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you are able to control all the plan renewals, upgrades and domain registrations will enable you to order extra dedicated IP addresses if you need them for any purpose. Just a few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you'll be able to use them without delay.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

As our dedicated web hosting plans come with 3 dedicated IP addresses as part of the plans as standard, we will give you a serious advantage if you would like to run any app which requires this type of an IP. We provide them for free and you are able to use them for as long as you use your server for anything you'd like - child name servers for any domain that you host, an SSL certificate for any website on your server, a software server (online games, VOIP), and so on. Through the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll obtain to take care of renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you will also be able to obtain more dedicated IP addresses in groups of three at any moment. They will be assigned to your server in minutes, so that you can start using them for your sites and web-based apps without delay.
