When you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - a unique number that's used to distinguish any device connected to the Web. The domain 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 of the server. Since there are many more sites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use a single IP for a number of sites even if they belong to different users. While this doesn't affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a given website, 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 want to protect the payment or login information that your site visitors submit, you need an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

We provide dedicated IP addresses with all our Linux shared hosting irrespective of the data center location and you can purchase one or several IPs using your Hepsia Control Panel. A fresh section will show up inside your account and you're able to request, delete or view your IPs with just a couple of clicks. You will be able to choose what number of sites or subdomains will use a certain IP since you can assign one with a couple of clicks to any hostname. To give an example, www.domain.com can be the main site, which uses a server's shared IP, while shop.domain.com can be a subdomain where you offer goods or services on the internet and it could have a dedicated IP address in addition to an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP which a website uses through the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You can also set a few of your websites to use the same dedicated IP provided that there is no SSL activated for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With only a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to add one or several dedicated IP addresses to your Linux semi-dedicated service and assign them to your websites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will help you view the available IP addresses and to check the ones that are in use with ease. Provided you want to get a new IP for an SSL certificate, you can use the auto-configuration function, that's available in our SSL order wizard. When you activate this feature, you won't need to do anything after you post your order since our system will request a dedicated IP address, assign it to the domain or subdomain involved, then install the SSL certificate - all of this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. In this way, you'll be able to secure the data that visitors submit on your site even if you lack previous experience with this kind of matters.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Hosting

All of our Linux VPS hosting services feature one dedicated IP address by default and in case you obtain a hosting Control Panel (cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia) during the registration process, you'll get an additional one as well without charge. You are able to use them as you decide - to access site content, to run a web application, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any website that you have and use the latter for any other domain that you would like to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you will be able to control all of the plan renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations will allow you to order extra dedicated IPs when you need them for any purpose. Just a few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you will be able to use them instantly.

Through the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll get to take care of renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you will also be able to get more dedicated IP addresses in sets of three at any moment. They'll be assigned to your server within minutes, so that you can start using them for your websites and web-based applications right away.
