If you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - a special number that is used to detect a device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name that you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. Due to the fact that there are many more sites than IPs, shared hosting servers use a single IP for multiple websites even in case they belong to separate users. While this doesn't affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a certain website, giving it better 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 info that your website visitors enter, you should have an IP along with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

With a cloud hosting account on our cloud platform, you're able to purchase a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a few clicks wherever your account is - in the USA, the United Kingdom or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains part of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're allotted to. If you want to use an SSL certificate so as to secure the information of your visitors and you acquire it through our company, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not be required to anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you may still have a website in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP address - a community forum where users can share opinions about your services, for instance.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server account from us, you will get the opportunity to get as many dedicated IP addresses as you like depending on your needs. It will take a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel to obtain your new IP plus a few more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The entire process is very simple and your site will start opening from the new IP address within minutes. Hepsia will allow you to see all of the IPs which you'll be able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. If you would like to use an SSL certificate on some of your sites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you can take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, which will assign a new IP and set up the certificate as soon as you send your order, so you don't have to adjust anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account by yourself.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS

All the Linux VPS that we provide come with a dedicated IP, so you will not share your IP with another customer with an account on the very same physical machine. If you choose a website hosting Control Panel for the server throughout the registration process, you'll get one more dedicated IP too and you are able to use it for any content which you host on your VPS - a website, an app, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, etc. In case you require more IPs, you can order them as an extra upgrade through your billing Control Panel and they will be assigned to your server within a matter of minutes. You can control your IPs with ease from your hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel which you'll get to maintain the virtual machine.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting

As you will be able to run almost anything on a dedicated server, all of our plans feature 3 dedicated IP addresses included as standard. In case you need to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you're able to use the IPs which we provide without charge. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you've registered through us or any place else and then use them to point other domains to the dedicated server. When you manage a hosting company, for example, this option will contribute to your credibility as an independent service provider. In case you need more IP addresses than the three our plans come with, you are able to purchase additional ones in increments of three either during the signup process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
