All devices on the Internet are identified by a specific number called an IP address, for instance If you have a website, the domain that you enter in order to load it is to save you time, but the server where the site files are still has an IP address. Since there're a lot more websites and devices than there are IP addresses, all shared hosting servers have a number of sites under an identical IP, while with a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you can get a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you'll enjoy better search engine positions as a dedicated IP usually means a faster loading website. Last but not least, you need such an IP when you want to acquire an SSL certificate for your website and shield the information that your visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting

Using a shared website hosting account on our cloud platform, you will be able to acquire a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a couple of clicks no matter where your account is - in the US, the UK or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains part of our 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 protect the information of your website visitors and you obtain it from us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you won't have 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 message board where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for instance.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, will make it really easy to obtain a dedicated IP address and use it for any kind of site that you have in your account regardless if it is under a domain or a subdomain. With just a couple of clicks you are able to order the IP and once our system assigns it, you'll be able to set it for one or multiple sites via the Hosted Domains part of the Control Panel. In the same location you'll also be able to view what IP is used by each and every domain or subdomain, a list of the dedicated IP addresses as well as if and what website they're assigned to? Provided the IP you'll need is for an SSL certificate, you will be able to take full advantage of our helpful SSL wizard which will make the overall process really easy since it'll request and assign an IP to the desired domain/subdomain and after that set up the SSL without any action on your side apart from placing the order.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

If you buy a VPS server from us, you'll get one dedicated IP address by default and an additional one in case you acquire a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You can use the IPs for any sort of purpose - an Internet site, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you'll be able to use to point to your VPS any website which you wish to host. You can even add extra dedicated IP addresses to the VPS account if you need them. This can be done through the billing Control Panel that you'll receive to take care of renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations and it takes no more than a couple of clicks. Shortly after you post your order, the added IP addresses will be available, so you are able to use them as you see fit.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

In case you buy a dedicated server, you probably would like to run a web app or host a number of sites, so we supply 3 dedicated IP addresses free of cost with each plan and you'll be able to use them the way you like - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain that you have registered here or from another company. The last option is very helpful in case you use your dedicated server to host customers' sites due to the fact that it'll give you credibility and anonymity as a hosting supplier. The server billing Control Panel will make it easier to add extra IP addresses as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes just a few clicks in the Upgrades section, so you're able to go ahead and start using your new dedicated IP addresses a few minutes after you send your order.
