If you host a website on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - an exclusive number which is used to distinguish any device connected to the Net. The website name that you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. Since there are many more websites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for several websites even in case they are owned by different users. Even though this does not affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a certain site, providing it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you plan to protect the payment or login information that your site visitors submit, you will need an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting

If you use some of our shared web hosting packages, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account with ease and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have picked for your account throughout the signup process, so it is possible to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce site, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can modify each domain or subdomain independently through the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL through our company, you'll be able to use our auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the site where you would like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you acquire a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you'll have the opportunity to obtain as many dedicated IPs as you would like depending on your needs. It will take just a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to obtain a new IP plus a few more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The entire process is really easy and your site will start loading from your new IP address within minutes. Hepsia will enable you to see all the IP addresses that you are able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. If you'd like to use an SSL certificate on some of your sites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you can take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, that will assign a new IP and set up the certificate the moment you send your order, so you don't need to modify anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account manually.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

All the VPS web hosting plans that we provide include a dedicated IP address, so you won't share the IP with some other customer with an account on the same physical machine. If you choose a web hosting Control Panel for the server throughout the registration process, you will get one more dedicated IP as well and you are able to use it for any content that you host on the VPS - a website, an application, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, and the like. If you need more IP addresses, you'll be able to order them as an additional upgrade using your billing Control Panel and they will be assigned to your server in a matter of minutes. You can manage the IPs without difficulty using your hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel that you will get to manage the virtual machine.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

If you obtain a dedicated server, you probably would like to run some web app or host numerous sites, so we supply three dedicated IP addresses gratis with every single package and you're able to use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain which you've registered here or from another company. The last mentioned option is very helpful in case you use the dedicated server to host users' websites as it will give you trustworthiness and anonymity as a hosting service provider. The server billing Control Panel will allow you to add extra IP addresses as well - the upgrade is in increments of three and takes just a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, therefore you'll be able to go ahead and use the new dedicated IPs just a couple of minutes after you submit your order.
