All devices on the Web are identified by a specific number called an IP address, for example In case you have a site, the domain that you type to open it is to save you time, but the server where your site files are still has an IP. Since there're far more websites and devices than there're IP addresses, all shared website hosting servers have a number of websites under the same IP, while with a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you're able to acquire a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you will have superior search engine rankings because a dedicated IP usually means a faster loading site. Furthermore, you need such an IP if you plan to get an SSL certificate for your website and shield the information that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

When you use a cloud hosting account on our cloud platform, you are able to acquire a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks no matter where your account is - in the US, Britain or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains area of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're allotted to. If you want to use an SSL certificate so as to secure the information of your website visitors and you obtain it through us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you will not need to do anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you can still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a discussion board where users can share 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 address takes just a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even if you have not had a web hosting account before, you won't have any kind of difficulties to obtain and assign a dedicated IP address. Each domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP address as an alternative to the server's shared one and you'll be able to make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you will also find all IPs that your websites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is accessible or you are already using it. In case that you want an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you can select everything to be set up automatically. When you use this feature, our system will change the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll set up your certificate within a matter of minutes, so you will not need to do anything on your end other than authorizing the SSL request via email.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

In case you obtain a dedicated server, you probably would like to run some web app or host a lot of websites, so we provide three dedicated IP addresses free of cost with each plan and you are able to use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name that you've registered here or via another company. The aforementioned option is very useful if you use the dedicated server to host users' Internet sites due to the fact that it'll give you credibility and anonymity as a web hosting supplier. The server billing Control Panel will make it easier to add more IP addresses as well - the upgrade is in increments of three and takes only a few clicks in the Upgrades section, which means that you will be able to go ahead and start using the brand new dedicated IP addresses several minutes after you send your order.
