When you host a website on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - a unique number that's used to identify any kind of device connected to the Web. The website name that you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. Due to the fact that there're far more websites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use a single IP for several sites even in case they are owned by several users. Even though this doesn't affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a given website, providing it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you plan to protect the payment or login data that your website visitors type in, you should have an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

Using a shared hosting account on our cloud platform, you'll be able to buy a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a few clicks regardless of where your account is - in the US, the UK or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains part of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they are assigned to. In case you want to use an SSL certificate to protect the information of your visitors and you acquire it through 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 may still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP address - a community forum where users can share their opinion about your services, for instance.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, will make it very easy to buy a dedicated IP and use it for any site that you have in the account irrespective of whether it's under a domain or a subdomain. With just a few clicks you will be able to order the IP and when our system assigns it, you can set it for one or more websites from the Hosted Domains section of the Control Panel. In the same location you will also be able to view what IP is used by each domain or subdomain, a long list of the dedicated IPs as well as if and what website they're assigned to? Provided the IP you'll need is for an SSL certificate, you can take full advantage of our user-friendly SSL wizard that will make the whole process very easy as it'll request and assign an IP to the preferred domain/subdomain and after that install the SSL without any action on your side aside from placing your order.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Hosting

If you get a virtual private server from us, you will have one dedicated IP address by default and an additional one in case you acquire a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You'll be able to use the IP addresses for any sort of purpose - a site, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you are able to use to point to your VPS any domain name which you would like to host. You may also add more dedicated IP addresses to the VPS account any time you need them. This can be done from the billing Control Panel that you'll obtain in order to manage renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it takes no more than a couple of clicks. Soon after you upload your order, the additional IP addresses will be at your disposal, so you will be able to use them the way you like.

All the Linux dedicated web hosting that we provide come with 3 dedicated IP addresses by default and absolutely free. You can use them for any purpose depending on the content that you have on your server - an online game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your customers can use to direct domain names to their hosting accounts, etceterra. You'll also be able to acquire extra dedicated IP addresses via the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones that come with your server. You'll be able to get the IPs in sets of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server soon after you send your order, so you can use them without any delays.
