When you host a site on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - a special number that is used to identify any kind of device connected to the Net. The website name which you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the website 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 IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for several sites even if they are owned by different users. While this does not affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly boost the loading speed of a site, providing it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you plan to protect the payment or login details that your site visitors enter, you should have an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

We offer dedicated IPs with all our Linux shared hosting packages irrespective of the data center location and you're able to buy one or several IPs from your Hepsia Control Panel. A fresh section will show up in your account and you'll be able to request, delete or view your IPs with a few clicks. You'll be able to select what number of websites or subdomains will use a certain IP as you can assign one with a few clicks to every hostname. For instance, www.domain.com can be the main website, which uses a server's shared IP, while shop.domain.com can be your subdomain where you offer goods or services on the net and it can have a dedicated IP address along with an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP which a site uses through 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 couple of of your websites to use a single dedicated IP provided that there's no SSL activated for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you obtain a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll get the opportunity to acquire as many dedicated IPs as you need depending on your needs. It will take a few clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to buy your new IP plus a couple of more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is really easy and your website will start loading from the new IP address in no time. Hepsia will enable you to view all IPs which you're able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. Provided you would like to use an SSL certificate on some of your websites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you can take advantage of our SSL order wizard, that can assign a new IP and install the certificate once you send your order, so you will not need to adjust anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account manually.
