If you host a website on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number which is used to distinguish a device connected to the Internet. The domain name which you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. Due to the fact that there're many more sites than IPs, shared hosting servers use the same IP for a number of sites even if they belong to several users. Even though this doesn't affect your website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a certain site, providing it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you plan to secure the payment or login data that your site visitors type in, you need an IP along with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

In case you host your websites on our advanced cloud platform and you have a shared hosting plan, you're able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with only a couple of clicks. This option is available in all data centers where we supply services - Chicago (US), London (UK) and Sydney (AU), so whatever your choice throughout the registration process, you will be able to obtain a dedicated IP for your sites. You can add / remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any time. If any of the IPs that you buy will be used for an SSL certificate, you could activate the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard and then our system will request & assign the IP before it sets up your certificate automatically. Our flexible platform will enable you to use a dedicated IP address for various websites as well if it is not in use by an SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia Control Panel, that is provided with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, will make it really easy to get a dedicated IP address and use it for any kind of website that you have in the account regardless if it's under a domain or a subdomain. With just a couple of clicks you are able to order the IP and as soon as our system assigns it, you will be able to set it for one or several sites from the Hosted Domains part of the Control Panel. In the same place you can also find what IP is used by each and every domain or subdomain, an index of the dedicated IPs as well as if and what website they're assigned to? Provided the IP you'll need is for an SSL certificate, you can take advantage of our helpful SSL wizard which will make the overall process very easy since it will request and assign an IP to the preferred domain/subdomain and after that install the SSL without the need of any action on your side other than placing the order.
