If you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP - a special number that is used to distinguish any device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name which you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. Considering that there are a lot more sites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use the same IP for several sites even in case they are owned by different users. While this does not affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly enhance the loading speed of a given website, providing it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you want to secure the payment or login info that your website visitors enter, you'll need an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting

When you use any of our web hosting packages, you will be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account without any difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have chosen for your account throughout the signup process, so you can use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce website, for example, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can adjust each domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL from our company, you're able to use our auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the site where you wish to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

As all of our dedicated servers feature 3 dedicated IP addresses provided in the plans as standard, we will give you a serious advantage if you'd like to run any application that requires this kind of an IP. We provide them for free and you are able to use them for as long as you use your server for anything you'd like - child name servers for any domain that you host, an SSL certificate for any site on the server, a software server (games, VOIP), etc. From the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll obtain to manage renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you will also be able to purchase more dedicated IPs in groups of three whenever you want. They will be assigned to your server within minutes, so that you can start using them for your sites and web-based apps without delay.
