All devices on the Web are identified by a unique number called an IP address, for instance In case you have a website, the domain name that you type to open it is for your convenience, however the server where your website files are still has an IP. As there're a lot more websites and devices than there are IP addresses, all shared hosting servers have a number of websites under an identical IP, while when you use a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you will be able to acquire a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you may get far better search engine positions since a dedicated IP often means a quicker loading website. Also, you need such an IP when you intend to obtain an SSL certificate for your site and protect the data that your visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting

When you use a website hosting account on our cloud platform, you're able to purchase a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks regardless of where your account is - in the US, Great 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 websites they are assigned to. If you would like to use an SSL certificate to secure the info of your site visitors and you acquire it from us, our system can assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not 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 community forum where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for instance.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP takes just a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even if you haven't had a hosting account before, you will not have any kind of difficulties to obtain and assign a dedicated IP address. Any domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP in place of the server's shared one and you're able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you can also find all IPs that your sites can use and if a dedicated IP is available or you are already using it. If you'd like to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you'll be able to select everything to be set up automatically. Using this feature, our system will change the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will set up your certificate within minutes, so you shall not need to do anything on your end apart from approving the SSL request via e-mail.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated web hosting plans that we provide have 3 dedicated IP addresses by default and for free. You're able to use them for any type of purpose according to the content that you've got on the server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your clients may use to redirect domain names to their web hosting accounts, and many other things. You'll also be able to get more dedicated IPs via the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones that come with your server. You're able to purchase the IPs in groups of three and they shall be added to your dedicated server shortly after you submit your order, so you can use them without any delays.
