All devices on the Web are identified by a specific number called an IP address, for instance If you have a site, the domain that you type in order to access it is to save you time, yet the server where the site files are still has an IP address. As there are far more sites and devices than there are IPs, all of the shared hosting servers have a number of websites under the very same IP, while using a dedicated server you'll have a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you are able to obtain a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you may have superior search engine positions because a dedicated IP often means a faster loading site. What is more, you need such an IP when you want to get an SSL certificate for your site and protect the information that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting

Using a shared website hosting account on our cloud platform, you are able to acquire a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a couple of clicks regardless of where your account is - in the USA, the United Kingdom or Australia. This is done from the Hosted Domains part of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they're assigned to. When you want to use an SSL certificate to protect the information of your website visitors and you acquire it from us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you won't have to do anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you may still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a discussion forum where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for instance.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you have the opportunity to get as many dedicated IPs as you'd like depending on your needs. It will take a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to obtain your new IP plus a couple of more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is very simple and your site will start loading from the new IP address very quickly. Hepsia will enable you to see all the IP addresses that you are able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. If you would like to use an SSL certificate on any of your sites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you can take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, which will assign a new IP and set up the certificate as soon as you upload your order, so you won't need to adjust anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account by yourself.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All the dedicated servers that we supply include three dedicated IP addresses by default and absolutely free. You can use them for any purpose according to the content that you've got on your server - an online game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your clients can use to redirect domain names to their website hosting accounts, etceterra. You can also buy additional dedicated IPs via the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones which come with your plan. You are able to purchase the IPs in sets of three and they will be added to your dedicated server soon after you send your order, which means that you can use them without delays.
