If you host a website on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - a special number that is used to detect any kind of device connected to the Internet. The website name that you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. Due to the fact that there're many more sites than IPs, shared hosting servers use a single IP for a variety of sites even if they are owned by separate users. While this doesn't affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a certain website, granting it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you want to secure the payment or login data that your site visitors type in, you'll need an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

If you host your websites on our innovative cloud platform and you have a shared hosting package, you are able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with only a few clicks. The aforementioned option is available in all of the data center facilities where we provide services - Chicago (US), London (UK) and Sydney (AU), so whatever your choice throughout the registration process, you can get a dedicated IP address for your sites. You can 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 obtain will be used for an SSL certificate, you can enable the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard and then our system will request & assign the IP before it installs your certificate automatically. Our flexible platform will allow you to use a dedicated IP address for a number of websites as well if it is not in use by an SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP takes only a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you haven't had a website hosting account previously, you will not encounter any difficulties to acquire and assign a dedicated IP address. Any domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP address in place of the server's shared one and you can make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also view all IPs that your websites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is accessible or you are already using it. In case that you wish to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you will be able to select everything to be installed automatically. With this feature, our system will modify the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll install your certificate within minutes, so you will not have to do anything on your end other than authorizing the SSL request via electronic mail.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

In case you acquire a VPS server from our company, you'll receive one dedicated IP address as standard and an extra one when you obtain a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You'll be able to use the IPs 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 plan to host. You can even add more dedicated IPs to the VPS account when you need them. You can do this from the billing Control Panel that you'll get so as to manage renewals, upgrade purchases and domain name registrations and it takes just a few clicks. Soon after you send your order, the extra IP addresses will be accessible, so you are able to use them the way you like.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All of the Linux dedicated servers that we provide come with three dedicated IP addresses as standard and for free. You're able to use them for any type of purpose depending on the content that you've got on your server - an online game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your customers may use to direct domain names to their hosting accounts, etc. You can also order additional dedicated IP addresses through the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones which come with your server. You will be able to acquire the IPs in sets of three and they will be added to your dedicated server soon after you submit your order, so that you can use them without delays.
