When you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP address - a special number that's used to detect a device connected to the Web. The website name which you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Because there're a lot more websites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use the same IP for multiple websites even if they are owned by separate users. Even though this does not affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a particular site, granting it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you want to secure the payment or login details that your site visitors submit, you should have an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting

We provide dedicated IPs with all of our website hosting regardless of the data center location and you will be able to obtain one or several IPs via your Hepsia Control Panel. An extra section will appear as part of your account and you will be able to request, view or delete your IPs with a few clicks. You are able to select how many websites or subdomains will use a certain IP as you can assign one with a couple of clicks to any hostname. To give an example, www.domain.com can be the main website, that uses a server's shared IP, while shop.domain.com can be a subdomain where you offer services or goods on the net and it might have a dedicated IP together with an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP that a domain uses via 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 couple of of your sites to use one and the same dedicated IP as long as there's no SSL installed for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you have the opportunity to acquire as many dedicated IPs as you need depending on the needs you have. It takes a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to purchase a new IP plus several more in order 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 in no time. Hepsia will allow you to view all the IPs that you can use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. In case you'd like to use an SSL certificate on any of your sites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you can take advantage of our SSL order wizard, that will assign a new IP and install the certificate the moment you send your order, so you won't have to customize anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account manually.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

All the Linux VPS plans that we provide include a dedicated IP address, so you will not share the IP with another customer with some other account on the very same machine. In case you choose a web hosting Control Panel for the server throughout the signup process, you'll receive an additional dedicated IP too and you can use it for any content which you host on the VPS - a website, an application, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, and the like. If 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 quickly. You can control your IPs with ease via your hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel which you will obtain to manage the virtual machine.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Since our dedicated web hosting plans offer 3 dedicated IP addresses provided in the plans by default, we shall give you a serious advantage if you want to run any application which requires this type of an IP. We supply them free of cost and you are able to use them for as long as you use your server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain name that you host, an SSL certificate for any site on your server, a software server (games, VOIP), etc. Using the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll get to take care of renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you can also order more dedicated IPs in groups of three at any time. They will be assigned to your server very quickly, so that you can start using them for your sites and web-based apps without delay.
