All devices on the World Wide Web are identified by a specific number called an IP address, such as In case you have a site, the domain name that you type to access it is to save you time, yet the server where the site files are still has an IP address. Because there are many more sites and devices than there are IPs, all shared website hosting servers have a number of websites under the very same IP, whereas when you use a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you're able to get a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you will enjoy superior search engine rankings as a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading website. What is more, you need such an IP if you would like to obtain an SSL certificate for your site and shield the data that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting

When you use a shared website hosting account on our cloud platform, you're able to get a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a couple of clicks no matter where your account is - in the US, Britain or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains section 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're allotted to. If you would like to use an SSL certificate to protect the info of your website visitors and you acquire it through us, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you may still have a website in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion board where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for instance.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP takes no more than a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even when you haven't had a website hosting account before, you won't have any difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP address. Any domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP address in place of the server's shared one and you will be able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also see all IPs that your websites can use and if a dedicated IP is available or you are already using it. If you wish to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you are able to select everything to be installed automatically. Using this feature, our system will change the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll install your certificate within minutes, so you will not have to do anything on your end other than authorizing your SSL request via e-mail.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

All of the VPS hosting plans that we supply feature a dedicated IP address, so you will not share your IP with any other customer with an account on the same server. In case you select a website hosting Control Panel for the server throughout the signup process, you'll receive an additional dedicated IP as well and you'll be able to use it for any content that you host on the VPS - an Internet site, an app, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, and so on. If you require more IPs, you will be able to order them as a further upgrade using your billing Control Panel and they'll be assigned to your server within a matter of minutes. You can take care of the IPs with ease through your web hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel which you will receive to control the virtual machine.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

If you acquire a dedicated server, you probably want to run some web app or host a lot of sites, so we provide three dedicated IPs without charge with each package and you can use them the way you like - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name that you have registered here or through another company. The last option is very helpful in case you use your dedicated server to host clients' sites as it will give you authority and anonymity as a website hosting service provider. The server billing Control Panel will make it easier to add extra IPs as well - the upgrade is in increments of three and takes just a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, so you're able to go ahead and start using the new dedicated IP addresses a few minutes after you send your order.
