When you host a website on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP - a unique number which is used to distinguish any device connected to the Web. The website name which you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Since there are many more websites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for several sites even in case they belong to separate users. While this doesn't affect your website performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a certain website, giving it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you would like to protect the payment or login information that your website visitors type in, you need an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting

We offer dedicated IPs with all of our Linux shared web hosting regardless of the data center location and you'll be able to purchase one or several IPs from your Hepsia Control Panel. An extra section will appear as part of your account and you can request, delete or view your IPs with a few clicks. You'll be able to choose how many domains or subdomains will use a given IP since you can assign one with a few clicks to any hostname. For example, www.domain.com can be your main site, which uses a server's shared IP, while shop.domain.com can be the subdomain where you offer goods or services online and it might have a dedicated IP in addition to an SSL certificate. You can change the IP that a domain 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 a couple of of your websites to use the same dedicated IP as long as there is no SSL installed for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All the Linux dedicated servers hosting that we supply include 3 dedicated IP addresses as standard and free of charge. You will be able to use them for any kind of purpose according to the content that you have on the server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your customers may use to redirect domains to their hosting accounts, etc. You'll also be able to order additional dedicated IPs through the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones that come with the server. You're able to purchase the IPs in groups of three and they shall be added to your dedicated server right after you send your order, so you can start using them without delays.
