If you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number that's used to identify a device connected to the Web. The domain name that you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Since there are far more websites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for many different sites even in case they belong to different users. Even though this does not affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly increase the loading speed of a particular website, providing it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you plan to protect the payment or login details that your website visitors submit, you should have an IP along with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

All of our VPS web hosting plans feature one dedicated IP as standard and when you choose a web hosting Control Panel (DirectAdmin, Hepsia, cPanel) throughout the signup process, you'll obtain a second one too completely free. You are able to use them the way you like - to access site content, to manage a web application, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain name that you have and use the latter for any other domain that you want to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you're able to control all plan renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations will enable you to order extra dedicated IPs in case you need them for any purpose. Just a few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you will be able to use them right away.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated web hosting plans that we supply come with three dedicated IP addresses as standard and free of charge. You can employ them for any purpose based on the content that you've got on the server - a video game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your clients can use to point domain names to their web hosting accounts, and much more. What's more, you can purchase more dedicated IPs through the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones that come with your plan. You will be able to buy the IPs in groups of three and they shall be added to your dedicated server soon after you submit your order, so that you can use them without any delays.
