When you host a site on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - a special number which is used to identify any kind of device connected to the Web. The website name that you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. Considering that there're many more sites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for several sites even in case they are owned by several users. While this doesn't affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a given website, granting it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you would like to protect the payment or login details that your site visitors enter, you should have an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting

With a shared web hosting account on our cloud platform, you are able to purchase a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with several clicks wherever your account is - in the US, the UK or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains section of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they are assigned to. When you would like to use an SSL certificate in order to secure the info of your website visitors and you get it through our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you won't need to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you can still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a message board where users can share their opinion about your services, for instance.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP takes no more than a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you have not had a website hosting account before, you won't experience any kind of difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP. Any domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP address in place of the server's shared one and you'll be able to make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also find all IPs that your websites can use and if a dedicated IP is free or you are already using it. If you wish to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you are able to select everything to be set up automatically. When you use this particular feature, our system will change the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll install your certificate within minutes, so you won't need to do anything on your end apart from authorizing the SSL order via email.

All of our Linux VPS hosting feature one dedicated IP address as standard and if you obtain a web hosting Control Panel (DirectAdmin, Hepsia, cPanel) throughout the registration process, you'll get an extra one too completely free. You are able to employ them the way you like - to access web content, to run a web application, to install an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any website that you have and use the latter for any other domain that you need to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you can control all the plan renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations will enable you to order additional dedicated IP addresses if you need them for any purpose. A couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you can use them right away.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting

All the Linux dedicated web hosting that we supply include three dedicated IP addresses by default and cost-free. You're able to use them for any purpose based on the content that you've got on your server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, 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. In addition, you can get additional dedicated IPs through the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones which come with the plan. You will be able to buy the IPs in groups of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server right after you submit your order, which means that you can start using them without any delays.
