If you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - an exclusive number which is used to distinguish any kind of device connected to the Web. The domain name which you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. Due to the fact that there're far more sites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for many different sites even if they are owned by several users. Even though this doesn't affect the site performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a site, providing it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you plan to protect the payment or login information that your site visitors enter, you should have an IP along with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting

We provide you with dedicated IP addresses with all our shared website hosting plans regardless of the data center location and you will be able to acquire one or several IPs through your Hepsia Control Panel. A new section will appear inside your account and you will be able to request, delete or view your IPs with just a couple of clicks. You are able to choose what number of domains or subdomains will use a particular IP as you can assign one with a couple of clicks to every hostname. For example, www.domain.com can be your main site, which uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be your subdomain where you offer goods or services on the web and it might have a dedicated IP address along with an SSL certificate. You can change the IP that a site uses from the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You can also set some of your websites to use the same dedicated IP as long as there's no SSL installed for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All of the dedicated web hosting plans that we supply feature three dedicated IP addresses as standard and cost-free. You're able to use them for any kind of purpose according to the content that you've got on the 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 clients may use to redirect domain names to their website hosting accounts, and many more. In addition, you can obtain additional dedicated IP addresses from the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones which come with the plan. You can obtain the IPs in sets of three and they will be added to your dedicated server right after you send your order, so you can use them without any delays.
