When you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - an exclusive number that is used to distinguish every device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name which you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Due to the fact that there're a lot more sites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for a variety of sites even if they belong to different users. Even though this does not affect your website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a given site, providing it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you plan to secure the payment or login details that your website visitors type in, you'll need an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

In case you host your websites on our up-to-date cloud platform and you have a shared hosting package, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any moment and assign it to any domain or subdomain with only a few clicks. The aforementioned option is accessible in all data centers where we provide services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so regardless of your choice throughout the registration process, you'll be able to get a dedicated IP address for your websites. You'll be able to add or remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any time. In case any of the IPs that you acquire will be used for an SSL certificate, you could activate the automatic configuration attribute in our SSL order wizard then our system will request & assign the IP before it installs your certificate automatically. Our flexible platform will enable you to use a dedicated IP address for various websites as well if it is not in use by an SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you acquire a semi-dedicated server account from us, you'll have the opportunity to acquire as many dedicated IPs as you need depending on your business needs. It will take a couple of clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel to buy a new IP and a couple of more to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is very simple and your site will start loading from the new IP address in minutes. Hepsia will enable you to see all IPs which you'll be able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate on any of your sites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you may take advantage of our SSL order wizard, that will assign a new IP and install the certificate as soon as you send your order, so you will not need to modify anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account manually.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS

If you obtain a virtual private server from our company, you will receive a dedicated IP address automatically and an extra one when you get a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You are able to use the IPs for any purpose - a site, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you are able to use to point to your VPS any domain that you plan to host. You can also add extra dedicated IPs to your VPS account when you need them. You can do this through the billing Control Panel that you will get so as to control renewals, upgrades and domain registrations and it will take just a couple of clicks. Shortly after you post your order, the extra IP addresses will be accessible, so you'll be able to use them as you see fit.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting

In case you get a dedicated server, you probably want to run some web app or host a lot of Internet sites, so we provide three dedicated IPs at no charge with each plan and you'll be able to use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name which you've registered here or via another company. The last mentioned option is very useful if you use your dedicated server to host users' sites due to the fact that it will give you trustworthiness and anonymity as a hosting supplier. The server billing Control Panel will enable you to add additional IPs as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes just a few clicks in the Upgrades section, so you'll be able to go ahead and start using your new dedicated IPs several minutes after you send your order.
