When you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - a unique number which is used to detect any device connected to the Net. The domain name which you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Because there are many more websites than IPs, shared hosting servers use a single IP for several sites even in case they belong to several users. Even though this doesn't affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a certain website, providing it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so when you plan to protect the payment or login information that your site visitors enter, you should have an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

We provide you with dedicated IP addresses with all our Linux shared packages whatever the data center location and you are able to get one or several IPs using your Hepsia Control Panel. An additional section will appear inside your account and you'll be able to request, view or delete your IPs with several clicks. You'll be able to choose how many sites or subdomains will use a given IP as you can assign one with a few clicks to every hostname. To give an example, www.domain.com can be your main website, that uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be a subdomain where you offer services or goods on the web and it can have a dedicated IP combined with an SSL certificate. You can change the IP which a website 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 some of your sites to use the same dedicated IP given that there's no SSL set up for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to add one or multiple dedicated IP addresses to your Linux semi-dedicated package and assign them to your websites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will help you find the available IP addresses and to monitor those that are in use in no time. In case you wish to acquire a new IP for an SSL certificate, you will be able to use the auto-configuration function, that's available in our SSL order wizard. If you activate this feature, you will not have to do anything after you submit your order as our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain in question, and then install the SSL certificate - all of this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. In this way, you are able to shield the information that visitors submit on your site even when you lack previous experience with this kind of matters.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting

In case you acquire a dedicated server, you probably want to run a web application or host a number of websites, so we supply 3 dedicated IPs for free with each and every plan and you will be able to use them as you see fit - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain that you've registered here or through another company. The aforementioned option is really useful in case you use your dedicated server to host customers' sites as it will give you authority and anonymity as a hosting company. The server billing Control Panel will make it easier to add more IPs as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes just a few clicks in the Upgrades section, so you are able to go ahead and start using your new dedicated IPs a few minutes after you submit your order.
