When you host a website on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - an exclusive number that is used to distinguish every device connected to the Internet. The domain name that you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. Because there're many more websites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for a number of websites even if they belong to several users. While this does not affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a certain site, giving it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so if you plan to protect the payment or login information that your site visitors type in, you should have an IP along with the SSL.

In case you host your sites on our state-of-the-art cloud platform and you have a cloud web hosting package, you're able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any moment and assign it to any domain or subdomain with only a few clicks. This option is accessible in all data centers where we offer services - Chicago (US), London (UK) and Sydney (AU), so whatever your choice during the registration process, you can acquire a dedicated IP address for your sites. You will be able to add or remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any moment. If any of the IPs that you obtain will be used for an SSL certificate, you could enable the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard and then our system will request and assign the IP before it installs your certificate automatically. Our adaptable platform will enable you to use a dedicated IP for a variety of sites as well if it is not in use by an SSL.

If you get a semi-dedicated server account through us, you'll get the option to obtain as many dedicated IP addresses as you would like depending on your needs.

Hepsia will enable you to see all of the IPs which you can use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate on some of your websites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you can take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, that can assign a new IP and set up the certificate the moment you send your order, so you don't have to customize anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account manually.

You will be able to employ them as you see fit - to access site content, to run a web application, to install an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain which you have and use the latter for any other website that you wish to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you are able to control all plan renewals, upgrades and domain registrations will enable you to order more dedicated IP addresses if you need them for any purpose.

All of the Linux dedicated web hosting plans that we provide feature three dedicated IP addresses as standard and for free.

You'll also be able to order more dedicated IPs through the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones that come with the server. You'll be able to purchase the IPs in sets of three and they shall be added to your dedicated server right after you send your order, so that you can use them without any delays.
