When you host a website on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - an exclusive number that's used to detect a device connected to the Internet. The domain name that you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Since there're many more websites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for a number of sites even in case they belong to separate users. While this does not affect the site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly enhance the loading speed of a site, providing it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you would like to protect the payment or login info that your website visitors enter, you should have an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting

If you use some of our shared web hosting packages, you can add a dedicated IP to your account without difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you've chosen for your account throughout the registration process, thus you can take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce site, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can modify each domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL through our company, you are able to use the auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the site where you want to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you buy a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you will get the opportunity to acquire as many dedicated IP addresses as you need depending on your business needs.

The process is really easy and your website will start loading from the new IP address in minutes. Hepsia will allow you to view all IP addresses that you're able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. In case you want to use an SSL certificate on any of your sites 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 install the certificate the moment you submit your order, so you don't need to adjust anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account manually.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS

All of our Linux VPS services feature one dedicated IP address as standard and if you choose a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin) during the signup process, you'll get a second one too completely free. You'll be able to use them the way you like - to access web content, to run a web app, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain which you have and use the latter for any other domain that you'd like to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you can control all the plan renewals, upgrades and domain registrations will allow you to order additional dedicated IPs when you need them for any purpose. Just a few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you can use them instantly.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting

All dedicated hosting that we provide come with three dedicated IP addresses by default and for free. You will be able to employ them for any kind of purpose according to the content that you've got on the server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your clients may use to point domains to their web hosting accounts, and much more. You'll also be able to order more dedicated IPs through the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones that come with your server. You will be able to acquire the IPs in groups of three and they shall be added to your dedicated server shortly after you send your order, so that you can use them with no delays.
