When you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number which is used to detect any kind of device connected to the Net. The website name that you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. As there're far more websites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for many different sites even if they belong to different users. While this does not affect the site performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a certain site, giving it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you plan to secure the payment or login info that your website visitors type in, you will need an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting

When you use a web hosting account on our cloud platform, you're able to acquire a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with several clicks no matter where your account is - in the US, the United Kingdom or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains area of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're allotted to. When you wish to use an SSL certificate in order to secure the information of your website visitors and you acquire it from our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not be required to anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you can still have a website in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP - a discussion forum where users can share their opinion about your services, for example.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia Control Panel, that is supplied with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, will make it really easy to purchase a dedicated IP address and use it for any site that you have in the account irrespective of whether it's under a domain or a subdomain. With only a couple of clicks you can order the IP and once our system assigns it, you can set it for one or several websites through the Hosted Domains part of the Control Panel. In the same location you'll also be able to see what IP is used by each domain or subdomain, an index of the dedicated IPs as well as if and what website they're assigned to? In case the IP you need is for an SSL certificate, you'll be able to take advantage of our useful SSL wizard that will make the entire process very easy because it will request and assign an IP to the preferred domain/subdomain and then install the SSL without the need of any action on your side apart from placing your order.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Because all our dedicated servers feature 3 dedicated IP addresses as part of the plans as standard, we will give you a head start in case you wish to run any app that needs this kind of an IP. We supply them free of cost and you are able to use them for as long as you use the server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain name that you host, an SSL certificate for any website on your server, a software server (games, VOIP), etcetera. Through the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you will receive to manage renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you can also purchase more dedicated IP addresses in groups of three any time. They'll be assigned to your server in a few minutes, so you can start using them for your websites and web-based apps without delay.
