When you host a website on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number that is used to identify any device connected to the Web. The domain name that you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. Due to the fact that there're a lot more sites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use the same IP for a variety of sites even if they are owned by different users. Even though this does not affect the site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a particular site, granting it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you plan to secure the payment or login information that your site visitors enter, you'll need an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Web Hosting

When you use a cloud web hosting account on our cloud platform, you're able to acquire a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a few clicks no matter where your account is - in the USA, Britain or Australia. This is done from the Hosted Domains area of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're allotted to. In case you wish to use an SSL certificate in order to protect the info of your site visitors and you acquire it through our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you won't have to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you may still have a website in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP - a community forum where users can share their opinion about your services, for instance.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP address takes just a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even if you haven't had a website hosting account previously, you won't have any difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP. Any domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP address rather than the server's shared one and you're able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also see all IPs that your sites can use and if a dedicated IP is accessible or you are already using it. In case that 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. With this feature, our system will change the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll install the certificate within a matter of minutes, so you will not need to do anything on your end apart from approving the SSL order through electronic mail.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

Our VPS servers provide you with one dedicated IP as standard and when you select a hosting Control Panel (DirectAdmin, Hepsia, cPanel) throughout the registration process, you will get an extra one as well without charge. You will be able to employ them as you decide - to access web content, to run a web app, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain name which you have and use the latter for any other domain that you intend to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you're able to control all the plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain name registrations will enable you to order more dedicated IP addresses in case you need them for any purpose. A few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you'll be able to use them instantly.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Since all of our Linux dedicated web hosting plans feature three dedicated IP addresses included in the plans by default, we will give you a serious advantage if you wish to run any app which requires this type of an IP. We provide them absolutely free and you're able to use them for as long as you use your server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain that you host, an SSL certificate for any site on the server, a software server (online games, VOIP), etcetera. Using the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll obtain to control renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you'll also be able to get more dedicated IP addresses in sets of three whenever you want. They'll be assigned to your server very quickly, so that you can start using them for your websites and web-based apps right away.
