If you host a website on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - a special number that is used to distinguish a device connected to the Net. The website name that you use for the website 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 are many more sites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for multiple sites even if they belong to separate users. Even though this does not affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly enhance the loading speed of a given website, giving it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you want to protect the payment or login data that your site visitors type in, you will need an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you host your sites on our state-of-the-art cloud platform and you have a cloud web hosting package, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with only a couple of clicks. This option is available in all the data center facilities where we offer services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so regardless of your choice throughout the registration process, you can get a dedicated IP for your websites. You will be able to add or remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any moment. If any of the IPs that you acquire will be used for an SSL certificate, you can activate the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard and our system will request and assign the IP before it sets up your certificate automatically. Our versatile platform will enable you to use a dedicated IP for multiple sites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP takes just a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even when you haven't had a hosting account previously, you will not have any kind of difficulties to obtain and assign a dedicated IP. Every domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP other than the server's shared one and you'll be able to make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also find all IPs that your websites can use and if a dedicated IP is available or you're already using it. If you wish to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you're able to select everything to be set up automatically. With this particular feature, our system will modify the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will install your certificate within a matter of minutes, so you shall not need to do anything on your end other than authorizing your SSL order through e-mail.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Because our dedicated web hosting plans come with three dedicated IP addresses included in the plans by default, we shall give you a serious advantage if you want to run any app which needs this type of an IP. We provide them for free and you're able to use them for as long as you use your server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain which you host, an SSL certificate for any website on the server, a software server (games, VOIP), etc. Through the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you will get to organize renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you can also purchase more dedicated IPs in groups of three whenever you need. They will be assigned to your server within a few minutes, so that you can start using them for your sites and web-based applications right away.
