When you host a website on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number that's used to distinguish any kind of device connected to the Internet. The website name that you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Due to the fact that there are far more websites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use a single IP for multiple websites even in case they are owned by different users. Even though this does not affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a given site, granting it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you plan to protect the payment or login information that your site visitors submit, you will need an IP along with the SSL.

If you host your websites on our advanced cloud platform and you have a shared web hosting plan, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. The aforementioned option is accessible in all of the data centers where we offer services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so regardless of your choice during the registration process, you'll be able to get a dedicated IP for your sites. You'll be able to add / remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any moment. In case any of the IPs that you purchase will be used for an SSL certificate, you can enable the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard then our system will request & assign the IP before it sets up the certificate automatically. Our versatile platform will allow you to use a dedicated IP for a variety of websites as well if it is not in use by an SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account from us, you'll get the option to acquire as many dedicated IP addresses as you need depending on the needs you have. It takes a couple of clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to acquire your new IP plus several more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is really easy and your site will start opening from the new IP address very quickly. Hepsia will enable you to see all the IPs which you're able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. If you want to use an SSL certificate on some of your websites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you may take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, which can assign a new IP and install the certificate as soon as you upload your order, so you will not need to modify anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account manually.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Web Hosting

If you get a virtual private server from us, you will be given a dedicated IP address as standard and a second one when you obtain a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You can use the IPs for any purpose - a website, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you're able to use to point to your VPS any website which you would like to host. You can also add more dedicated IP addresses to the VPS account when you need them. You can do this from the billing Control Panel that you'll obtain so as to take care of renewals, upgrades and domain registrations and it takes no more than a couple of clicks. Soon after you send your order, the added IP addresses will be available, so you'll be able to use them the way you like.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All of the dedicated servers hosting packages that we supply come with three dedicated IP addresses by default and for free. You can employ them for any kind of purpose depending on the content that you've got 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 redirect domain names to their web hosting accounts, and much more. In addition, you can order additional 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're able to buy the IPs in sets of three and they will be added to your dedicated server shortly after you send your order, which means that you can start using them without delays.
