When you host a site on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP - a unique number which is used to distinguish any kind of device connected to the Web. The website name which you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. As there are a lot more websites than IPs, shared hosting servers use a single IP for multiple sites even in case they belong to different users. Even though this does not affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a certain website, giving it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you plan to protect the payment or login information that your site visitors submit, you'll need an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting

We offer dedicated IPs with all of our Linux shared website hosting packages regardless of the data center location and you're able to buy one or several IPs using your Hepsia Control Panel. An extra section will appear as part of your account and you can request, delete or view your IPs with just a few clicks. You can select what number of websites or subdomains will use a certain IP since you can assign one with a couple of clicks to any hostname. For instance, www.domain.com can be your main website, that uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be the subdomain where you offer goods or services on the web and it could have a dedicated IP together 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 may also set some of your websites to use a single dedicated IP given that there's no SSL set up for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting

As all of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages feature 3 dedicated IP addresses provided in the plans by default, we shall give you a head start if you want to run any app that requires this type of an IP. We provide them free of charge and you'll be able to use them for as long as you use the server for anything you'd like - child name servers for any domain name that you host, an SSL certificate for any site on your server, a software server (games, VOIP), and so on. Through the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll get to manage renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you'll also be able to purchase more dedicated IPs in groups of three at any time. They will be assigned to your server in no time, so you can start using them for your sites and web-based apps right away.
