If you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - a special number that's used to identify any kind of device connected to the Internet. The website name which you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Due to the fact that there're far more sites than IPs, shared hosting servers use a single IP for multiple sites even in case they are owned by separate users. While this does not affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly increase the loading speed of a particular site, giving it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so if you wish to secure the payment or login data that your site visitors enter, you should have an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

We offer dedicated IPs with all our Linux shared services regardless of the data center location and you're able to acquire one or several IPs through your Hepsia Control Panel. An additional section will show up in your account and you'll be able to request, delete or view your IPs with just a couple of clicks. You'll be able to select how many domains or subdomains will use a given IP since you can assign one with a few clicks to every hostname. For example, www.domain.com can be your main website, which uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be your subdomain where you offer services or goods online and it can have a dedicated IP combined with an SSL certificate. You can change the IP that 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 can also set a few of your websites to use one and the same dedicated IP provided that there is no SSL installed for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you buy a dedicated server, you probably want to run a web application or host a lot of sites, so we supply three dedicated IP addresses 100 % free with each package and you'll be able to use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain that you've registered here or from another company. The last option is really useful in case you use your dedicated server to host users' sites due to the fact that it will give you credibility and anonymity as a web hosting company. The server billing Control Panel will make it easier to add additional IP addresses as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes just a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, therefore you'll be able to go ahead and start using the new dedicated IP addresses several minutes after you submit your order.
