All devices on the World Wide Web are recognized by a specific number called an IP address, such as In case you have a site, the domain name that you type to load it is for your convenience, however the server where the site files are still has an IP address. Since there are far more sites and devices than there are IP addresses, all the 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 too. Even in the first case though, you're able to acquire a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you'll enjoy superior search engine rankings since a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading site. What's more, you need such an IP when you intend to obtain an SSL certificate for your site and shield the information that your visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
Using a cloud 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 regardless of where your account is - in the USA, the UK or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains part 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 protect the info of your visitors and you acquire it from us, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install 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 addition to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion forum where users can share opinions about your services, for example.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP takes only a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you have not had a website hosting account before, you will not experience any kind of difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP address. Any domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP in place of the server's shared one and you can make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you will also see all IPs that your sites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is accessible or you're already using it. If you'd like to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you can select everything to be set up automatically. With this feature, our system will modify the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll install the certificate in a couple of minutes, so you will not have to do anything on your end apart from approving your SSL request via e-mail.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All of the VPS servers that we provide include a dedicated IP, so you won't share your IP with some other client with some other account on the very same physical machine. If you choose a hosting Control Panel for the server throughout the registration process, you will get a second dedicated IP as well and you're able to use it for any content which you host on the VPS - a site, an application, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, and the like. If you need more IPs, you are able to order them as a further upgrade through your billing Control Panel and they will be assigned to your server within a matter of minutes. You can manage the IPs with ease through your hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel that you will get to control the virtual machine.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
All of the Linux dedicated web hosting plans that we provide include 3 dedicated IP addresses by default and free of charge. You will be able to employ them for any kind of purpose depending on the content that you've got on your server - an online 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 customers can use to redirect domain names to their web hosting accounts, etc. You can also get additional dedicated IPs via the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones which come with your server. You can buy the IPs in groups of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server soon after you submit your order, so you can use them with no delays.
