If you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - an exclusive number that's used to detect any kind of device connected to the Internet. The website name which you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. Since there are many more sites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use the very same IP for a number of websites even if they belong to several users. While this doesn't affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly improve the loading speed of a site, giving it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so when you plan to secure the payment or login data that your site visitors submit, you will need an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting

We supply dedicated IPs with all our website hosting plans irrespective of the data center location and you'll be able to buy one or several IPs using your Hepsia Control Panel. An extra section will show up inside your account and you are able to request, delete or view your IPs with a couple of clicks. You will be able to decide how many sites or subdomains will use a particular IP since you can assign one with a few clicks to any hostname. For instance, www.domain.com can be your main site, that uses a server's shared IP, whereas shop.domain.com can be a subdomain where you offer services or goods online and it might have a dedicated IP address together 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 some of your sites to use one and the same dedicated IP as long as there is no SSL activated for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you have the option to obtain as many dedicated IPs as you like depending on your needs. It takes just a couple of clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel to buy your new IP and a couple of more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is very simple and your website will start loading from the new IP address in minutes. Hepsia will allow you to see all the IPs which you can use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. Provided you'd 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, that can assign a new IP and set up the certificate the moment you send your order, so you do not have to adjust anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account by yourself.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

In case you get a VPS server from us, you'll receive one dedicated IP address automatically and a second one when you acquire a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You can use the IPs for any kind of purpose - a site, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you can use to point to your VPS any domain that you plan to host. In addition, you can add more dedicated IPs to your VPS account every time you need them. You can do this from the billing Control Panel that you'll acquire so as to manage renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations and it will take no more than a few clicks. After you submit your order, the added IP addresses will be accessible, so you will be able to use them the way you like.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All of the Linux dedicated servers that we offer have 3 dedicated IP addresses by default and for free. You're able to use them for any type of purpose based 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 website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your clients can use to point domain names to their website hosting accounts, and many other things. In addition, you can purchase extra dedicated IP addresses through the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones which come with the plan. You will be able to acquire the IPs in groups of three and they shall be added to your dedicated server shortly after you submit your order, so that you can start using them with no delays.
