If you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - a unique number that's used to identify any kind of device connected to the Internet. The website name that you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Due to the fact that there're far more sites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for several websites even in case they are owned by several users. While this doesn't affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly boost the loading speed of a site, giving it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you would like to protect the payment or login details that your site visitors enter, you will need an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

With a shared hosting account on our cloud platform, you're able to obtain a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks regardless of where your account is - in the USA, the United Kingdom or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains area of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're assigned to. When you would like to use an SSL certificate in order to protect the information of your visitors and you obtain it from us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you can still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion forum where users can share opinions about your services, for example.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you get a semi-dedicated server account from us, you'll get the opportunity to acquire as many dedicated IP addresses as you'd like depending on your business needs. It takes a couple of clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to purchase a new IP plus several more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The entire process is very easy and your website will start loading from the new IP address in a few minutes. Hepsia will allow you to see all of the IPs which you're able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. If you would like to use an SSL certificate on any of your websites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you can take advantage of our SSL order wizard, that will assign a new IP and set up the certificate the moment you send your order, so you do not have to customize anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account by yourself.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting

If you buy a dedicated server, you probably want to run some web app or host numerous sites, so we provide three dedicated IPs totally free with each plan and you can use them as you see fit - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain which you have registered here or via another company. The last mentioned option is very helpful if you use your dedicated server to host customers' sites due to the fact that it will give you credibility and anonymity as a web hosting company. The server billing Control Panel will enable you to add more IPs as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes just a few clicks in the Upgrades section, which means that you are able to go ahead and take advantage of the new dedicated IPs a few minutes after you send your order.
