All devices on the Web are identified by a special number called an IP address, for example 123.123.123.123. In case you have a website, the domain that you type to access it is to save you time, yet the server where your website files are still has an IP address. Due to the fact that there are a lot more websites and devices than there are IP addresses, all of the shared website hosting servers have a number of websites under the very same IP, whereas using a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you will be able to get a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you may get better search engine rankings since a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading website. What's more, you need such an IP if you intend to get an SSL certificate for your website and protect the information that your visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

If you use some of our shared hosting plans, you'll 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 have picked for your account throughout the signup process, which means that it is possible to take full 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, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can modify each and every domain or subdomain separately through the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL from us, you will be able to use the auto-configuration tool, which 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

When you obtain a semi-dedicated server account from us, you will get the option to acquire as many dedicated IPs as you would like depending on your preferences. It will take just a few clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to purchase a new IP plus several more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The entire process is very simple and your website will start loading from your new IP address within minutes. Hepsia will allow you to see all IPs that you will be able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. Provided you would like to use an SSL certificate on some of your websites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you can take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, that can assign a new IP and install the certificate the moment you submit your order, so you will not have to change anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account manually.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

Our Linux VPS servers feature one dedicated IP address as standard and in case you select a hosting Control Panel (cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia) throughout the registration process, you will acquire an additional one too for free. You can use them as you decide - to access web content, to manage a web app, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any website which you have and use the latter for any other website that you wish to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you'll be able to control all plan renewals, upgrades and domain registrations will enable you to order additional dedicated IP addresses if you need them for any purpose. A few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you will be able to use them straight away.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Since all of our dedicated service offer three dedicated IP addresses included in the plans as standard, we will give you a head start in case you want to run any app that requires this kind of an IP. We supply them for free and you are able to use them for as long as you use the server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain name that you host, an SSL certificate for any website on the server, a software server (games, VOIP), and so on. Using the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll get to control renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you will also be able to get more dedicated IPs in groups of three at any time. They will be assigned to your server in minutes, so you can start using them for your sites and web-based apps right away.
