All devices on the World Wide Web are identified by a unique number called an IP address, for example If you have a website, the domain name that you enter to be able to access it is to save you time, but the server where your website files are still has an IP. Due to the fact that there're many more websites and devices than there're IP addresses, all shared hosting servers have a number of sites under the very same IP, whereas when you use a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you're able to get a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you may get better search engine rankings as a dedicated IP often means a faster loading site. What's more, you need such an IP if you plan to purchase an SSL certificate for your website and secure the data that your visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting

When you use any of our web hosting packages, you can add a dedicated IP address to your account without any difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've chosen for the account throughout the signup process, which means that you can take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce website, for example, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can edit each domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL from our company, you're able to use the auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the site where you'd like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you get a semi-dedicated server account from us, you will get the option to get as many dedicated IPs as you would like depending on your needs. It takes just a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to order a new IP plus several more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The entire process is very easy and your site will start opening from the new IP address very quickly. Hepsia will enable you to see all IPs which you will be able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. If you'd like to use an SSL certificate on any of your sites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you can take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, which will assign a new IP and install the certificate once you submit your order, so you do not need to adjust anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account manually.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Because our dedicated web hosting plans come with 3 dedicated IP addresses included in the plans by default, we'll give you a head start if you would like to run any application which needs such an IP. We provide them for free and you'll be able to use them for as long as you use the server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain which you host, an SSL certificate for any website on your server, a software server (online games, VOIP), etc. Using the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you will obtain to organize renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you will also be able to buy more dedicated IPs in sets of three any time. They'll be assigned to your server very quickly, so you can start using them for your sites and web-based applications without delay.
