All devices on the Web are recognized by a specific number called an IP address, such as In case you have a site, the domain name that you enter to be able to access it is for your convenience, yet the server where the site files are still has an IP address. Since 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, while using a dedicated server you'll get a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you will be able to obtain a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you'll enjoy far better search engine rankings since a dedicated IP usually means a quicker loading site. What's more, you need such an IP when you want to get an SSL certificate for your site and protect the info that your visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
When you use a shared hosting account on our cloud platform, you're able to buy a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a few clicks regardless of where your account is - in the USA, the United Kingdom or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains section of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they are assigned to. In case you wish to use an SSL certificate in order to protect the info of your visitors and you obtain it from us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not be required to anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you can still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP address - a message board where users can share their opinion about your services, for instance.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP address takes only a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even when you haven't had a hosting account before, you will not encounter any difficulties to obtain and assign a dedicated IP. Every domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP rather than the server's shared one and you will be able to make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you can also find all IPs that your sites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is free or you're already using it. If you need an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you're able to select everything to be installed automatically. With this feature, our system will modify the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will install the certificate within a matter of minutes, so you will not have to do anything on your end apart from authorizing your SSL order via email.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All Linux VPS web hosting plans that we supply include a dedicated IP address, so you will not share your IP with some other client with an account on the very same physical machine. In case you choose a website hosting Control Panel for the server during the signup process, you will receive a second dedicated IP too and you'll be able to use it for any content that you host on your VPS - a site, an application, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, and so on. In case you would like to have more IPs, you'll be able to order them as an extra upgrade via your billing Control Panel and they will be assigned to your server within a matter of minutes. You can take care of the IPs without any difficulty using your website hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel which you'll obtain to command the virtual machine.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
All of the Linux dedicated web hosting plans that we supply have 3 dedicated IP addresses by default and absolutely free. You'll be able to use them for any type of purpose according to the content that you have on your server - an online game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your customers may use to redirect domains to their hosting accounts, and many other things. In addition, you can order additional dedicated IPs via the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones which come with the plan. You can get the IPs in sets of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server soon after you submit your order, so you can use them with no delays.
