If you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP address - a unique number that is used to identify any kind of device connected to the Web. The domain name that you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. As there're a lot more websites than IPs, shared hosting servers use the same IP for a variety of websites even if they belong to separate users. While this doesn't affect your website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a given website, giving it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so when you wish to protect the payment or login info that your site visitors type in, you should have an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Hosting

We provide you with dedicated IPs with all our hosting plans irrespective of the data center location and you are able to acquire one or several IPs through your Hepsia Control Panel. A fresh section will appear as part of your account and you can request, view or delete your IPs with several clicks. You are able to decide what number of websites or subdomains will use a given IP as you can assign one with a couple of 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 services or goods on the net and it might have a dedicated IP address in addition to an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP which a domain 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 few of your websites to use the same dedicated IP given that there is no SSL activated for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP address takes no more than a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even when you haven't had a website hosting account before, you will not encounter any difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP address. Any domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP instead of the server's shared one and you are able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you can also view all IPs that your sites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is free or you are already using it. In case that you need an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you can select everything to be set up automatically. With this particular feature, our system will modify the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will set up your certificate within a matter of minutes, so you will not need to do anything on your end except for approving your SSL order via electronic mail.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Due to the fact that you'll be able to run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all our packages feature 3 dedicated IP addresses included by default. In case you plan to launch some server software or to set up an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you can use the IPs which we provide you with free of charge. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any website name that you have registered with our company or elsewhere and employ them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. When you have a web hosting company, for example, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone supplier. If you need more IPs than the three our packages provide you with, you will be able to buy additional ones in increments of three either during the registration process or from your billing Control Panel any time.
