If you host a website on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP - a unique number that is used to identify a device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name that you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Because there're far more sites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use the same IP for several websites even if they belong to different users. While this doesn't affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly enhance the loading speed of a given site, granting it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so if you plan to protect the payment or login details that your site visitors type in, you need an IP along with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting
We offer dedicated IPs with all our shared web hosting whatever the data center location and you can purchase one or several IPs via your Hepsia Control Panel. A fresh section will appear inside your account and you can request, delete or view your IPs with a couple of clicks. You can choose how many websites or subdomains will use a certain IP since you can assign one with a few clicks to any hostname. For example, www.domain.com can be your main site, that uses a server's shared IP, whereas shop.domain.com can be a subdomain where you offer goods or services on the internet and it can have a dedicated IP address together with an SSL certificate. You can change the IP which a domain uses through the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You may also set some of your sites to use a single dedicated IP provided that there's no SSL installed for it.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you obtain a semi-dedicated server account through us, you'll get the opportunity to get as many dedicated IPs as you like depending on your needs. It takes a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to order a new IP plus several more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is very simple and your site will start opening from your new IP address within minutes. Hepsia will allow you to view all of the IP addresses that you can use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. Provided you would like to use an SSL certificate on some of your websites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you may take advantage of our SSL order wizard, which can assign a new IP and install the certificate once you upload your order, so you won't need to customize anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account by yourself.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
We give a zero cost dedicated IP address with each VPS servers that we supply and if you pick a hosting Control Panel on your VPS order page, you'll obtain another dedicated IP absolutely free. The addresses can be used for any kind of purpose - a site in case you would like to install an SSL certificate or a server IP in case you want to run some application such as VOIP software, for instance. You can also use the the dedicated IP addresses to create child name servers for one or multiple domain names that you have and after that you can set them as NS records for any other domain that you would like to point to your Virtual Server. Any time you need extra dedicated IPs, it will take you just a couple of clicks from your billing Control Panel to obtain them and they will be allocated to your server within a matter of minutes.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Since it is possible to run almost anything on a dedicated server, all our plans feature three dedicated IP addresses included by default. In case you want to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you can use the IPs which we supply absolutely free. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you have registered through us or any place else and use them to point other domains to the dedicated server. If you have a hosting company, for instance, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as an independent service provider. In case you need more IPs than the three our plans include, you are able to purchase extra ones in increments of three either throughout the signup process or through your billing Control Panel at any time.
