When you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP address - a unique number that's used to identify every device connected to the Web. The website name that you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. Because there're a lot more websites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use a single IP for a number of websites even in case 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 given website, providing it superior positions 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 information that your website visitors type in, you will need an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting

In case you host your sites on our state-of-the-art cloud platform and you have a web hosting plan, you can add a dedicated IP to your account at any time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This option is accessible in all data centers where we supply services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so whatever your choice during the registration process, you can acquire a dedicated IP for your websites. You'll be able to 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 buy will be used for an SSL certificate, you may activate the automatic configuration attribute in our SSL order wizard and then our system will request & assign the IP before it installs the certificate automatically. Our versatile platform will allow you to use a dedicated IP address for various sites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

With just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to add one or several dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated server and assign them to your websites. The Hosted Domains section of Hepsia will help you view the available IP addresses and to keep track of those which are in use with ease. Provided you would like to obtain a new IP for an SSL certificate, you can use the auto-configuration function, that's available in our SSL order wizard. If you enable this feature, you will not have to do anything after you post your order as our system will request a dedicated IP address, assign it to the domain or subdomain in question, and then install the SSL certificate - all of this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. In this way, you will be able to secure the data that visitors upload on your website even if you don't have any previous experience with this kind of matters.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

Our VPS servers feature one dedicated IP by default and in case you get a hosting Control Panel (DirectAdmin, Hepsia, cPanel) throughout the signup process, you'll obtain an extra one as well completely free. You'll be able to employ them the way you like - to access online content, to manage a web app, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain that you have and use the latter for any other website that you want to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you are able to control all the plan renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations will allow you to order extra dedicated IPs if you need them for any purpose. Just a few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you'll be able to use them straight away.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All the dedicated servers that we provide feature three dedicated IP addresses by default and for free. You will be able to use them for any type of purpose based on the content that you have on the 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 that your clients may use to redirect domain names to their website hosting accounts, and many other things. What's more, you can acquire additional dedicated IPs via the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones that come with the server. You will be able to obtain 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.
