All devices on the Web are recognized by a unique number called an IP address, such as When you have a site, the domain name that you type to access it is to save you time, but the server where your site files are still has an IP address. Considering that there're many more websites and devices than there're IPs, all shared web hosting servers have a number of sites under the very same IP, while using a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you'll be able to obtain a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you will have superior search engine rankings because a dedicated IP usually means a faster loading website. What is more, you need such an IP when you intend to acquire an SSL certificate for your website and shield the info that visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting
Using a shared website hosting account on our cloud platform, you can acquire a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks no matter where your account is - in the US, the United Kingdom or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains area of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're allotted to. When you want to use an SSL certificate so as to secure the information of your visitors and you acquire it through us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you won't need to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, 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 opinions about your services, for example.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP address takes no more than a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even when you have not had a website hosting account before, you will not encounter any difficulties to order 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're able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also view all IPs that your sites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is available or you are already using it. In case that you need an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you're able to select everything to be set up automatically. With this particular feature, our system will change the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll install your certificate in a matter of minutes, so you shall not have to do anything on your end other than authorizing the SSL request via email.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All the VPS web hosting plans that we provide come with a dedicated IP, so you won't share the IP with any other customer with a different account on the same physical machine. In case you select a web hosting Control Panel for the server throughout the registration process, you'll receive a second dedicated IP too and you're able to use it for any content that you host on the VPS - a website, an application, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, and the like. If you need more IPs, you can order them as an additional upgrade via your billing Control Panel and they will be assigned to your server very quickly. You'll be able to take care of your IPs without difficulty from your web hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel that you will obtain to control the virtual machine.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Because you are able to run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all our plans feature 3 dedicated IP addresses included as standard. In case you want to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you'll be able to use the IPs which we provide free of charge. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you've registered through our company or elsewhere then employ them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. If you run a web hosting company, for instance, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as an independent provider. In case you need more IPs than the three our plans come with, you can purchase additional ones in increments of 3 either during the signup process or from your billing Control Panel any time.
