All devices on the Internet are recognized by a specific number called an IP address, for example If you have a website, the domain that you enter to be able to load it is for your convenience, but the server where your website files are still has an IP. Considering that there are a lot more sites and devices than there're IP addresses, all the shared hosting servers have a number of sites under the same IP, while using a dedicated server you'll have a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you're able to get a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you'll enjoy improved search engine positions because a dedicated IP usually means a quicker loading website. Also, you need such an IP when you want to acquire an SSL certificate for your site and shield the info that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Hosting

Using a hosting account on our cloud platform, you are able to buy a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks regardless of where your account is - in the USA, the UK or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains area 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 are assigned to. When you wish to use an SSL certificate to secure the info of your site visitors and you acquire it from us, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you won't be required to anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you can still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a message board where users can share their opinion about your services, for instance.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP takes only a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you have not had a website hosting account previously, you won't encounter any difficulties to order and assign a dedicated IP address. Each domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP instead of the server's shared one and you are able to make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you will also find all IPs that your websites can use and if a dedicated IP is accessible or you're already using it. If you wish 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 particular feature, our system will modify the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll install the certificate within a matter of minutes, so you will not need to do anything on your end other than authorizing your SSL request through email.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

As you can run almost anything on a dedicated server, all of our plans come with 3 dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you plan to launch some server software or to set up an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you can use the IPs that we supply for free. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any domain name that you've registered through our company or anywhere else and use them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. If you own a hosting company, for instance, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone supplier. When you need more IP addresses than the three the plans provide you with, you'll be able to buy extra ones in increments of 3 either during the signup process or through your billing Control Panel any time.
