When you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP - a special number that is used to distinguish a device connected to the Web. The website name which you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. Due to the fact that there are far more websites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use the same IP for a number of sites even if they are owned by several users. Even though this does not affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a site, providing it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you wish to protect the payment or login details that your website visitors submit, you will need an IP together with the SSL.

In case you host your sites on our revolutionary cloud platform and you have a shared hosting plan, you are able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. The aforementioned option is available in all the data center facilities where we provide services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so irrespective of your choice during the registration process, you will be able to obtain a dedicated IP address for your websites. You will be able to add or remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any moment. If any of the IPs that you buy will be used for an SSL certificate, you could activate the automatic configuration attribute in our SSL order wizard and our system will request and assign the IP before it installs your certificate automatically. Our versatile platform will allow you to use a dedicated IP for various websites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
With just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel, you can add one or several dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated server and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains section of Hepsia will allow you to see the available IPs and to keep track of those which are in use with ease. In case you wish to obtain a new IP for an SSL certificate, you are able to use the auto-configuration function, that's available in our SSL order wizard. If you enable this feature, you won't have to do anything after you submit your order since our system will request a dedicated IP address, assign it to the domain or subdomain in question, then install the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. In this way, you will be able to protect the details that visitors upload on your website even if you do not have any previous experience with this type of matters.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
In case you acquire a VPS server from our company, you'll be given a dedicated IP address by default and an additional one in case you get a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You'll be able to use the IPs for any 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 that you wish to host. In addition, you can add extra dedicated IP addresses to the VPS account if you need them. You can do this from the billing Control Panel that you'll get to take care of renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it takes just a couple of clicks. After you post your order, the added IP addresses will be accessible, so you are able to use them as you see fit.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
If you buy a dedicated server, you probably would like to run a web app or host a lot of websites, so we supply 3 dedicated IPs free of cost with each package and you will be able to use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name which you have registered here or from another company. The aforementioned option is really helpful if you use the dedicated server to host clients' sites as it'll give you authority and anonymity as a web hosting company. The server billing Control Panel will make it easier to add more IP addresses as well - the upgrade is in increments of three and takes just a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, so you're able to go ahead and employ the new dedicated IPs a couple of minutes after you send your order.
