If you host a site on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - a special number that is used to identify any device connected to the Web. The website name which you use for the site is for quick access 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 far more sites than IPs, shared hosting servers use the very same IP for a variety of sites even in case they are owned by several users. Even though this doesn't affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a certain website, giving it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you would like to secure the payment or login data that your website visitors type in, you should have an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

When you use a shared hosting account on our cloud platform, you can purchase a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks no matter where your account is - in the USA, Britain or Australia. This can be done from 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 are assigned to. If you want to use an SSL certificate in order to secure the info of your website visitors and you obtain it through us, our system can 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 may still have a website in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion forum where users can share opinions about your services, for instance.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP address takes just a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even when you have not had a web hosting account before, you won't encounter any kind of difficulties to order and assign a dedicated IP address. Any domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP address instead of the server's shared one and you'll be able to make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you can also view all IPs that your websites can use and if a dedicated IP is free or you are already using it. In case that you want an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you can select everything to be set up automatically. With this feature, our system will modify the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll install the certificate in a couple of minutes, so you will not need to do anything on your end apart from approving the SSL request through e-mail.

All Linux dedicated servers hosting that we provide have three dedicated IP addresses as standard and for free. You're able to use them for any type of purpose depending on the content that you've got on your server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your clients may use to direct domains to their website hosting accounts, and many more. You'll also be able to order additional dedicated IPs from the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones that come with the server. You'll be able to get the IPs in groups of three and they shall be added to your dedicated server shortly after you submit your order, so that you can start using them without any delays.
