If you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP address - a special number that is used to distinguish every 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 browser connects to the IP of the server. Considering that there're far more websites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use the same IP for many different sites even in case they belong to different users. Even though this doesn't affect the site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly improve the loading speed of a website, giving it superior positions 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 details that your site visitors submit, you'll need an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

When you use some of our shared hosting plans, you can add a dedicated IP address to your account without difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you've picked for the account throughout the signup process, therefore you will be able to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce site, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can edit each and every domain or subdomain independently through the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL through our company, you are able to use our auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you'd like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you buy a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you will have the option to obtain as many dedicated IPs as you'd like depending on your needs. It will take a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to acquire your new IP and several more to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is really easy and your website will start loading from your new IP address in a few minutes. Hepsia will enable you to see all the IP addresses which you are able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. Provided you want to use an SSL certificate on some of your sites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you may take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, that can assign a new IP and install the certificate once you upload your order, so you will not need to change anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account manually.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

We give a totally free dedicated IP address with each VPS plans that we supply and when you pick a web hosting Control Panel on your VPS order page, you will get one more dedicated IP 100 % free. Your addresses can be employed for any purpose - a website in case you want to install an SSL certificate or a server IP in case you want to manage some app like VOIP software, for example. You can also use the dedicated IPs to make child name servers for one or more websites that you have and then you can set them as NS records for any other domain that you'd like to direct to your Virtual Server. If you need extra dedicated IP addresses, it will take you just a couple of clicks from your billing Control Panel to acquire them and they'll be allotted to your server in no time.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

As you'll be able to run almost anything on a dedicated server, all of our plans feature 3 dedicated IP addresses included as standard. In case you plan to launch some server software or to set up an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you are able to use the IPs that we supply free of charge. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any website name that you've registered with us or anywhere else and then employ them to point other domains to the dedicated server. If you run a website hosting company, for example, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone provider. In case you need more IP addresses than the three our packages include, you are able to buy extra ones in increments of three either during the signup process or from your billing Control Panel any time.
