All devices on the Internet are recognized by a special number called an IP address, for instance In case you have a website, the domain that you enter to be able to open it is to save you time, but the server where your site files are still has an IP address. As there are many more websites and devices than there're IPs, all shared web hosting servers have a number of websites under an identical IP, whereas when you use a dedicated server you'll get a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you'll be able to obtain a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you may have far better search engine rankings since a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading site. Also, you need such an IP in case you intend to buy an SSL certificate for your site and protect the information that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Hosting

When you use a hosting account on our cloud platform, you'll be able to obtain a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with several clicks no matter where your account is - in the United States, Britain or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains part of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they are assigned to. If you want to use an SSL certificate in order to protect the info of your visitors and you get it from our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you won't be required to anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you may still have a website in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP - a discussion forum where users can share their opinion about your services, for instance.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case 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 when you haven't had a hosting account previously, you will not experience any difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP. Each domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP rather than the server's shared one and you will be able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you will also view all IPs that your sites can use and if a dedicated IP is free or you are already using it. If you need an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you're able to select everything to be installed automatically. Using this feature, our system will modify the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will set up the certificate in a matter of minutes, so you will not have to do anything on your end apart from approving the SSL order via email.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

If you acquire a dedicated server, you probably plan to run some web application or host a lot of websites, so we supply 3 dedicated IP addresses completely free with each package and you will be able to use them as you see fit - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain that you've registered here or via another company. The aforementioned option is really helpful if you use your dedicated server to host clients' websites due to the fact that it will give you credibility and anonymity as a website hosting service provider. The server billing Control Panel will allow you to add additional IP addresses as well - the upgrade is in increments of three and takes just a few clicks in the Upgrades section, which means that you're able to go ahead and start using the brand new dedicated IP addresses just a couple of minutes after you submit your order.
