When you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number which is used to identify any kind of device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name which you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. As there're far more sites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use the same IP for a variety of sites even in case they are owned by separate users. Even though this does not affect the site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a given website, providing it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you wish to protect the payment or login details that your website visitors enter, you should have an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting

We provide you with dedicated IP addresses with all of our Linux website hosting packages regardless of the data center location and you will be able to acquire one or several IPs via your Hepsia Control Panel. An extra section will appear as part of your account and you'll be able to request, view or delete your IPs with a couple of clicks. You are able to choose how many sites or subdomains will use a given IP as you can assign one with a couple of clicks to every hostname. For instance, www.domain.com can be the main website, that uses a server's shared IP, whereas shop.domain.com can be your subdomain where you offer services or goods online and it could have a dedicated IP address in addition to an SSL certificate. You can change the IP which a site uses from 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 couple of of your websites to use one and the same dedicated IP as long as there is no SSL installed for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you obtain a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll have the opportunity to acquire as many dedicated IPs as you would like depending on the needs you have. It will take just a few clicks inside the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to purchase your new IP plus several more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is very easy and your website will start loading from the new IP address in a few minutes. Hepsia will allow you to view all of the IPs that you'll be able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. Provided you would like to use an SSL certificate on some of your sites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you may 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 customize anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account manually.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting

In case you acquire a dedicated server, you probably would like to run a web app or host a number of Internet sites, so we provide three dedicated IPs without charge with each package and you will be able to use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain which you have registered here or via another company. The last mentioned option is very useful in case you use the dedicated server to host customers' websites since it will give you credibility and anonymity as a web hosting service provider. The server billing Control Panel will make it easier to add additional IP addresses as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes only a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, so you are able to go ahead and take advantage of your brand new dedicated IP addresses just a few minutes after you send your order.
