When you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number that's used to distinguish a device connected to the Web. The domain name that you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Due to the fact that there are a lot more websites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use the same IP for many different websites even if they belong to separate users. While this doesn't affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly boost the loading speed of a given website, granting it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you wish to protect the payment or login information that your website visitors type in, you'll need an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting

We offer dedicated IPs with all our shared web hosting regardless of the data center location and you will be able to buy one or several IPs from your Hepsia Control Panel. A fresh section will show up as part of your account and you can request, delete or view your IPs with a couple of clicks. You will be able to decide how many domains or subdomains will use a particular IP since you can assign one with a couple of clicks to any hostname. For instance, www.domain.com can be the main website, which uses a server's shared IP, while shop.domain.com can be the subdomain where you offer goods or services on the web and it can have a dedicated IP address combined with 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 can also set a few of your sites to use one and the same dedicated IP as long as there's no SSL set up for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you get a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you will have the option to acquire as many dedicated IPs as you'd like depending on your business needs. It takes just a few clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel to purchase your new IP plus a few more to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The entire process is very easy and your site will start loading from your new IP address within minutes. Hepsia will allow you to view all IPs which you are able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. Provided you would like to use an SSL certificate on some of your sites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you can take advantage of our SSL order wizard, that will assign a new IP and set up the certificate as soon as you upload your order, so you won't have to modify anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account by yourself.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

In case you get a VPS server from us, you'll have one dedicated IP address automatically and an additional one when you obtain a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You can use the IP addresses for any sort of purpose - an Internet site, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you are able to use to point to your VPS any domain name which you intend to host. You can also add extra dedicated IPs to your VPS account every time you need them. This can be done via the billing Control Panel that you'll get to control renewals, upgrades and domain registrations and it will take no more than a few clicks. After you upload your order, the added IP addresses will be at your disposal, so you're able to use them as you see fit.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Because all our dedicated servers feature 3 dedicated IP addresses provided in the plans as standard, we shall give you a serious advantage if you want to run any app that requires such an IP. We provide them free of charge and you'll be able to use them for as long as you use the server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain that you host, an SSL certificate for any site on the server, a software server (games, VOIP), etcetera. Using the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll get to organize renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you'll also be able to purchase more dedicated IP addresses in sets of three whenever you want. They'll be assigned to your server very quickly, so you can start using them for your sites and web-based apps right away.
