All devices on the Web are identified by a specific number called an IP address, for example If you have a website, the domain that you type in order to load it is for your convenience, but the server where the site files are still has an IP address. Since there're a lot more sites and devices than there are IPs, all the shared hosting servers have a number of websites under the same IP, whereas when you use a dedicated server you'll have a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you're able to acquire a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you'll get far better search engine rankings as a dedicated IP often means a quicker loading website. Furthermore, you need such an IP if you intend to acquire an SSL certificate for your website and protect the data that your visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Web Hosting

If you use any of our cloud web hosting plans, you will be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account without difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have selected for the account during the signup process, therefore it's 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 website, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can adjust each and every domain or subdomain individually through the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire 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 site where you would like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you'll get the option to acquire as many dedicated IPs as you'd like depending on your preferences. It will take a couple of clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to obtain your new IP plus a few more to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The entire process is very easy and your website will start opening from your new IP address in no time. Hepsia will allow you to see all the IP addresses that you'll be able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate on some of your sites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you may take advantage of our SSL order wizard, which can assign a new IP and set up the certificate the moment you upload your order, so you will not have to adjust anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account by yourself.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Due to the fact that it is possible to run almost anything on a dedicated server, all our packages come with three dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you wish to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you'll be able to use the IPs which we provide free of charge. You can also register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you have registered with us or somewhere else and use them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. If you run a website hosting company, for instance, this option will contribute to your credibility as an independent provider. When you need more IP addresses than the three the plans feature, you'll be able to buy extra ones in increments of 3 either during the signup process or from your billing Control Panel any time.
