If you host a website on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - a unique number that is used to identify every device connected to the Web. The website name that you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Because there're many more sites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for multiple websites even in case they are owned by several users. While this does not affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly enhance the loading speed of a given site, granting it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so when you would like to secure the payment or login info that your website visitors type in, you will need an IP alongside 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 plan, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This option is accessible in all the data centers where we supply services - Chicago (US), London (UK) and Sydney (AU), so regardless of your choice during the registration process, you'll be able to acquire a dedicated IP address for your websites. You'll be able to add / remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any moment. If any of the IPs that you buy will be used for an SSL certificate, you could enable the automatic configuration attribute in our SSL order wizard and then our system will request and assign the IP before it installs the certificate automatically. Our versatile platform will allow you to use a dedicated IP address for a number of sites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you buy a semi-dedicated server account from us, you'll get the option to get as many dedicated IPs as you need depending on your preferences. It takes just a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to purchase a new IP and a few more to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is very simple and your website will start opening from the new IP address very quickly. Hepsia will allow you to view all the IP addresses which you're able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. Provided you want 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, that will assign a new IP and install the certificate the moment you send your order, so you won't need to modify anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account manually.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Hosting
Our Linux VPS hosting services feature one dedicated IP address as standard and if you order a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin) throughout the registration process, you will obtain an extra one as well completely free. You'll be able to employ them the way you like - to access web content, to manage a web application, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain that you have and use the latter for any other website that you intend to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you can control all the plan renewals, upgrades and domain registrations will allow you to order more dedicated IPs in case you need them for any purpose. Just a couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you'll be able to use them immediately.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting
In case you need a dedicated server, you probably plan to run some web application or host a lot of sites, so we supply three dedicated IP addresses gratis with each and every plan and you can use them the way you like - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain that you have registered here or through another company. The aforementioned option is very useful if you use the dedicated server to host customers' sites since it will give you credibility and anonymity as a hosting service provider. The server billing Control Panel will make it easier to add extra IP addresses as well - the upgrade is in increments of three and takes only a few clicks in the Upgrades section, which means that you will be able to go ahead and use your brand new dedicated IPs a couple of minutes after you submit your order.
