When you host a website on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - a unique number that's used to distinguish a device connected to the Net. The domain name that you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Due to the fact that there are many more websites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for many different sites even if they are owned by separate users. Even though this doesn't affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a site, giving it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you wish to protect the payment or login info that your website visitors type in, you should have an IP along with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you host your sites on our outstanding cloud platform and you have a cloud web hosting package, you can add a dedicated IP to your account at any moment and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This option is available in all the data centers where we provide services - Chicago (US), London (UK) and Sydney (AU), so whatever your choice during the registration process, you're able to get a dedicated IP for your sites. You will be able to add or remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any time. In case any of the IPs that you buy will be used for an SSL certificate, you could activate the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard and then our system will request and assign the IP before it sets up the certificate automatically. Our flexible platform will allow you to use a dedicated IP for multiple websites as well if it is not in use by an SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you acquire a semi-dedicated server account from us, you'll have the option to obtain as many dedicated IPs as you'd like depending on your needs. It will take a couple of clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to order a new IP and several more to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The entire process is very easy and your site will start opening from your new IP address in no time. Hepsia will enable you to view all the IPs that you'll be able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate on any of your websites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you can take advantage of our SSL order wizard, which can assign a new IP and set up the certificate as soon as you submit your order, so you do not have to customize anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account manually.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

As all of our dedicated servers come with three dedicated IP addresses included in the plans by default, we will give you a serious advantage if you want to run any software which needs such an IP. We supply them for free and you can use them for as long as you use the server for anything you'd like - child name servers for any domain name which you host, an SSL certificate for any site on your server, a software server (games, VOIP), etc. Through the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll receive to organize renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you'll also be able to acquire more dedicated IP addresses in sets of three whenever you want. They will be assigned to your server in minutes, so that you can start using them for your sites and web-based applications without delay.
