If you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP - a special number that is used to detect any device connected to the Internet. The domain name that you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Considering that there are far more websites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for several sites even if they belong to several users. While this doesn't affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a particular website, providing it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you wish to protect the payment or login details that your website visitors type in, you'll need an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting

We supply dedicated IPs with all our shared website hosting plans whatever the data center location and you are able to get one or several IPs through your Hepsia Control Panel. A new section will show up in your account and you will be able to request, view or delete your IPs with several clicks. You can choose how many sites or subdomains will use a certain IP as you can assign one with a few clicks to every hostname. For instance, www.domain.com can be your main website, which uses a server's shared IP, while shop.domain.com can be your subdomain where you offer goods or services on the internet and it might have a dedicated IP along with an SSL certificate. You can change the IP that a website uses via the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You may also set a couple of of your sites to use the same dedicated IP provided that there is no SSL activated for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server account through us, you have the opportunity to get as many dedicated IP addresses as you need depending on your needs. It takes a few clicks inside the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to buy a new IP plus a couple of more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is very easy and your website will start loading from your new IP address in no time. Hepsia will enable you to view all of the IPs which you will be able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. In case you want to use an SSL certificate on any of your sites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you may take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, that will assign a new IP and set up the certificate once you submit your order, so you don't have to adjust anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account by yourself.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

All VPS hosting plans that we offer include a dedicated IP address, so you will not share your IP with any other client with another account on the very same machine. In case you select a hosting Control Panel for the server during the signup process, you will get one more dedicated IP too and you'll be able to use it for any content which you host on the VPS - a site, an app, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, and the like. In case you need more IP addresses, you're able to order them as an additional upgrade through your billing Control Panel and they will be assigned to your server very quickly. You'll be able to take care of your IPs with ease via your hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel that you'll receive to take care of the virtual machine.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Since you can run almost anything on a dedicated server, all our plans feature three dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you plan to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you'll be able to use the IPs which we provide you with absolutely free. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any website name that you've registered with our company or anywhere else and then employ them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. When you own a website hosting company, for instance, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as an independent provider. If you need more IP addresses than the three the packages come with, you will be able to get extra ones in increments of 3 either throughout the signup process or through your billing Control Panel any time.
