All devices on the Internet are identified by a special number called an IP address, for instance When you have a website, the domain name that you type to load it is to save you time, but the server where the website files are still has an IP. Due to the fact that there are far more sites and devices than there're IP addresses, all the shared web hosting servers have a number of sites under the same IP, whereas using a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you are able to obtain a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you'll enjoy far better search engine positions because a dedicated IP generally means a quicker loading site. In addition, you need such an IP in case you want to acquire an SSL certificate for your website and secure the information that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

When you use some of our shared hosting packages, you can add a dedicated IP to your account without any difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have picked for your account during the sign-up process, so you'll 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 website, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can edit each domain or subdomain individually through the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL through our company, you can use the auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you want to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you obtain a semi-dedicated server account from us, you'll have the opportunity to acquire as many dedicated IPs as you would like depending on your preferences. It will take a couple of clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to acquire a new IP plus a couple of more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is very easy and your website will start opening from the new IP address within minutes. Hepsia will allow you to view all the IP addresses which you'll be able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. Provided you want to use an SSL certificate on any of your sites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you may take advantage of our SSL order wizard, which will assign a new IP and install the certificate once you upload your order, so you will not have to modify anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account by yourself.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

If you purchase a VPS server from us, you'll receive one dedicated IP address automatically and an extra one in case you get a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You are able to use the IPs for any purpose - a website, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you're able to use to point to your VPS any domain name that you plan to host. Also, you can add extra dedicated IPs to your VPS account every time you need them. This can be done from the billing Control Panel that you'll obtain in order to control renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations and it will take only a couple of clicks. Shortly after you post your order, the added IP addresses will be accessible, so you will be able to use them the way you like.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

If you get a dedicated server, you probably would like to run a web application or host numerous Internet sites, so we provide 3 dedicated IP addresses free of cost with every single plan and you can use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain that you've registered here or via another company. The last mentioned option is very helpful if you use the dedicated server to host users' Internet sites as it will give you authority and anonymity as a hosting supplier. The server billing Control Panel will enable you to add extra IP addresses as well - the upgrade is in increments of three and takes just a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, which means that you'll be able to go ahead and use your brand new dedicated IP addresses just a few minutes after you send your order.
