When you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - a special number that's used to detect a device connected to the Internet. The website name which 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 of the server. Because there are many more sites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use the same IP for multiple sites even if they are owned by separate users. Even though this doesn't affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a given website, providing it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you would like to protect the payment or login info that your website visitors enter, you should have an IP along with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

If you host your sites on our cutting-edge cloud platform and you have a shared 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. The aforementioned option is available in all data centers where we supply services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so regardless of your choice throughout the registration process, you are able to obtain a dedicated IP for your websites. You can add / remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any moment. In case any of the IPs that you purchase will be used for an SSL certificate, you can activate the automatic configuration attribute in our SSL order wizard and then our system will request & assign the IP before it sets up your certificate automatically. Our adaptable platform will allow you to use a dedicated IP address for a variety of websites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server account from us, you'll get the opportunity to acquire as many dedicated IP addresses as you'd like depending on your preferences. It takes just a couple of clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to get a new IP plus several more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is very simple and your website will start opening from the new IP address in no time. Hepsia will allow you to see all of the IPs that you will be able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. If you would like to use an SSL certificate on some of your sites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you may take advantage of our SSL order wizard, which will assign a new IP and install the certificate once you send your order, so you will not have to modify anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account manually.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All the dedicated web hosting plans that we offer feature 3 dedicated IP addresses as standard and for free. You are able to employ them for any type of purpose depending on the content that you have on your 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 which your customers can use to redirect domains to their website hosting accounts, etc. You'll also be able to acquire additional dedicated IPs via the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones that come with your server. You'll be able to get the IPs in sets of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server soon after you send your order, which means that you can use them with no delays.
