When you host a site on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP - a special number that's used to detect a device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name which you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. Considering that there are many more sites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for multiple websites even if they belong to different users. While this doesn't affect the site performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly increase the loading speed of a site, granting it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you would like to secure the payment or login info that your site visitors type in, you need an IP along with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting

With a web hosting account on our cloud platform, you're able to purchase a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a few clicks regardless of where your account is - in the US, Britain or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains part of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they are allotted to. When you would like to use an SSL certificate so as to protect the information of your site visitors and you obtain it through our company, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not be required to anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you can still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a community forum where users can share their opinion about your services, for example.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All the dedicated servers that we offer have 3 dedicated IP addresses by default and for free. You'll be able to use them for any type of purpose according to the content that you have on your server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your customers can use to point domains to their web hosting accounts, and much more. You will also be able to get additional dedicated IP addresses through the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones which come with your server. You are able to acquire the IPs in sets of three and they will be added to your dedicated server soon after you send your order, so you can start using them without any delays.
