When you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - a unique number that's used to distinguish a device connected to the Internet. The domain name which you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Due to the fact that there're many more websites than IPs, shared hosting servers use a single IP for a number of sites even in case they are owned by several users. Even though this doesn't affect your website performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a certain site, providing it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so if you would like to protect the payment or login info that your website visitors enter, you will need an IP together with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
We provide dedicated IPs with all our cloud hosting service irrespective of the data center location and you're able to buy one or several IPs using your Hepsia Control Panel. A fresh section will show up in your account and you're able to request, delete or view your IPs with a few clicks. You will be able to choose what number of sites or subdomains will use a particular IP since you can assign one with a couple of clicks to every hostname. To give an example, www.domain.com can be your main site, which uses a server's shared IP, while shop.domain.com can be a subdomain where you offer services or goods on the web and it might have a dedicated IP address together 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 may also set a few of your sites to use the same dedicated IP provided that there's no SSL installed for it.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP takes only a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you have not had a web hosting account previously, you will not have any kind of difficulties to acquire and assign a dedicated IP address. Each domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP address rather than the server's shared one and you are able to make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also find all IPs that your sites can use and if a dedicated IP is accessible or you are already using it. In case that you wish to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you'll be able to select everything to be set up automatically. When you use this particular feature, our system will change the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll install your certificate in a couple of minutes, so you shall not have to do anything on your end other than authorizing the SSL order through email.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

You can use the IPs for any kind of purpose - a site, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you're able to use to point to your VPS any domain that you intend to host. You can also add more dedicated IPs to the VPS account every time you need them. This can be done via the billing Control Panel that you will obtain to take care of renewals, upgrades and domain registrations and it takes only a couple of clicks. Shortly after you send your order, the added IP addresses will be at your disposal, so you are able to use them as you see fit.
