When you host a website on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number which is used to distinguish any kind of device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name that you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. Considering that there're many more websites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use the very same IP for a number of sites even if they belong to several users. Even though this does not affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly improve the loading speed of a particular site, giving it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you plan to protect the payment or login information that your website visitors type in, you'll need an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Hosting

If you use some of our hosting packages, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account with ease and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have picked for your account during the registration process, so you will be able to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce website, for example, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can modify each domain or subdomain independently from the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL through us, you will be able to use our auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you wish to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, that is provided with our semi-dedicated server plans, will make it very easy to buy a dedicated IP address and use it for any site that you have in the account regardless if it's under a domain or a subdomain. With only a few clicks you will be able to order the IP and once our system assigns it, you will be able to set it for one or multiple websites from the Hosted Domains section of the Control Panel. In the same place you'll also be able to view what IP is used by each domain or subdomain, a list of the dedicated IPs as well as if and what website they're assigned to? In case the IP you need is for an SSL certificate, you will be able to take full advantage of our helpful SSL wizard which will make the entire process very simple due to the fact that it will request and assign an IP to the desired domain/subdomain and then install the SSL without any action on your side aside from placing your order.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting

Due to the fact that you can run almost anything on a dedicated server, all our packages come with 3 dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you want to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you'll be able to use the IPs that we provide you with free of charge. You can also register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you've registered through us or any place else and then use them to point other domains to the dedicated server. When you run a hosting company, for instance, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as an independent supplier. If you need more IP addresses than the three our packages feature, you'll be able to buy extra ones in increments of three either throughout the signup process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
