When you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP address - a unique number that's used to detect every device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name which you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. Considering that there are many more sites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use the same IP for a variety of websites even in case they belong to several users. While this does not affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a particular site, providing it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so when you want to protect the payment or login info that your site visitors enter, you need an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Hosting

We provide you with dedicated IPs with all our Linux hosting packages whatever the data center location and you are able to buy one or several IPs through your Hepsia Control Panel. An additional section will show up as part of your account and you are able to request, view or delete your IPs with just a few clicks. You can select how many domains or subdomains will use a certain IP as you can assign one with a few clicks to any hostname. For example, www.domain.com can be your main website, which uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be a subdomain where you offer goods or services on the net and it might have a dedicated IP in addition to an SSL certificate. You can change the IP which a site uses via the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You may also set a couple of of your websites to use the same dedicated IP provided that there is no SSL set up for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP address takes just a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you have not had a website hosting account previously, you will not have any difficulties to order and assign a dedicated IP address. Every domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP rather than the server's shared one and you're able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you will also find all IPs that your sites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is free or you are already using it. If you want an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you can select everything to be installed automatically. Using this particular feature, our system will change the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will set up your certificate within a matter of minutes, so you shall not have to do anything on your end except for authorizing your SSL order via email.
