All devices on the Web are identified by a special number called an IP address, for instance If you have a website, the domain that you type to access it is for your convenience, however the server where the site files are still has an IP address. Because there are far more websites and devices than there are IPs, all of the shared website hosting servers have a number of sites under the same IP, whereas with a dedicated server you'll get a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you can acquire a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you'll enjoy superior search engine positions because a dedicated IP generally means a quicker loading website. What's more, you need such an IP if you want to get an SSL certificate for your site and secure the information that your visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting

If you use some of our shared website hosting plans, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account with ease and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've picked for the account during the signup process, thus you will be able to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce site, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can adjust each and every domain or subdomain individually through the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL through us, you're able to use our auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you wish to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, will make it really easy to acquire a dedicated IP address and use it for any kind of site that you have in your account irrespective of whether it is under a domain or a subdomain. With only a couple of clicks you're able to order the IP and once our system assigns it, you can set it for one or several websites via the Hosted Domains area of the Control Panel. In the same place you'll also be able to view what IP is used by each domain or subdomain, a list of the dedicated IPs as well as if and what site they're assigned to? Provided the IP you'll need is for an SSL certificate, you will be able to take advantage of our useful SSL wizard that will make the whole process super easy due to the fact that it will request and assign an IP to the desired domain/subdomain and after that install the SSL without the need of any action on your side apart from placing the order.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Because all our dedicated servers offer three dedicated IP addresses provided in the plans by default, we shall give you a serious advantage if you'd like to run any software which requires this kind of an IP. We provide them free of charge and you will be able to use them for as long as you use your server for anything you'd like - child name servers for any domain that you host, an SSL certificate for any site on the server, a software server (games, VOIP), and so on. Using the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you will receive to take care of renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you can also get more dedicated IP addresses in sets of three at any time. They will be assigned to your server within minutes, so you can start using them for your websites and web-based applications right away.
