When you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a unique number that's used to identify a device connected to the Net. The domain name which you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. As there're many more sites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use the same IP for a variety of websites even if they are owned by separate users. While this does not affect your site performance directly, using 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 setup of an SSL certificate too, so if you wish to secure the payment or login details that your website visitors submit, you should have an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting

We provide dedicated IP addresses with all our shared web hosting plans regardless of the data center location and you're able to purchase one or several IPs using your Hepsia Control Panel. An additional section will show up as part of your account and you can request, delete or view your IPs with just a few clicks. You are able to choose how many domains or subdomains will use a certain IP since you can assign one with a few clicks to every hostname. For example, www.domain.com can be your 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 web and it could have a dedicated IP together with an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP which a website uses via the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You can also set some of your websites to use the same dedicated IP as long as there's no SSL installed for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you purchase a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you will get the opportunity to acquire as many dedicated IP addresses as you'd like depending on your business needs. It will take just a couple of clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel to get your new IP and a few more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is very simple and your website will start opening from the new IP address in no time. Hepsia will allow you to view all IPs that you are able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. If you would like to use an SSL certificate on any of your websites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you may take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, that can assign a new IP and set up the certificate the moment you submit your order, so you will not have to modify anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account by yourself.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

If you purchase a VPS server from us, you'll be given one dedicated IP address automatically and an additional one in case you acquire a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You can use the IP addresses for any kind of purpose - an Internet site, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you're able to use to point to your VPS any domain name which you intend to host. You can also add extra dedicated IPs to the VPS account every time you need them. You can do this through the billing Control Panel that you'll acquire so as to manage renewals, upgrades and domain registrations and it will take only a couple of clicks. Shortly after you upload your order, the added IP addresses will be accessible, so you can use them the way you like.

The server billing Control Panel will allow you to add additional IP addresses as well - the upgrade is in increments of three and takes just a few clicks in the Upgrades section, therefore you can go ahead and employ your brand new dedicated IPs just a few minutes after you send your order.
