All devices on the Web are identified by a specific number called an IP address, for instance In case you have a website, the domain name that you enter to open it is for your convenience, yet the server where the website files are still has an IP address. Since there're far more sites and devices than there are IP addresses, all the shared web hosting servers have a number of websites under the same IP, whereas when you use a dedicated server you'll get a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you will be able to get a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you will have improved search engine rankings because a dedicated IP generally means a quicker loading site. What's more, you need such an IP if you plan to purchase an SSL certificate for your site and protect the data that visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
Using a shared hosting account on our cloud platform, you are able to get a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with several clicks regardless of where your account is - in the US, Britain or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains area of the 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 allotted to. If you wish to use an SSL certificate to protect the info of your visitors and you obtain it through our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you will not be required to anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you may still have a site in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP - a discussion board where users can share their opinion about your services, for instance.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account through us, you'll have the option to acquire as many dedicated IP addresses as you need depending on your needs. It will take just a couple of clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to order a new IP plus a couple of more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is really easy and your site will start loading from the new IP address in a few minutes. Hepsia will allow you to see all IP addresses which you will be able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate on some of your websites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you may take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, that will assign a new IP and install the certificate once you upload your order, so you do not have to change anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account by yourself.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All of our VPS web hosting plans come with one dedicated IP address by default and when you order a website hosting Control Panel (cPanel, Hepsia, DirectAdmin) during the signup process, you will obtain an extra one too without charge. You're able to use them the way you like - to access web content, to manage a web application, to install an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any website that you have and use the latter for any other domain that you'd like to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you'll be able to control all plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain name registrations will enable you to order extra dedicated IP addresses in case you need them for any purpose. A couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you'll be able to use them immediately.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
All the dedicated web hosting plans that we supply come with 3 dedicated IP addresses as standard and cost-free. You're able to use them for any purpose according to the content that you've got on your server - an online game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your customers may use to direct domains to their hosting accounts, and many other things. You can also order additional dedicated IP addresses from the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones that come with your plan. You're able to get the IPs in groups of three and they will be added to your dedicated server shortly after you send your order, so that you can start using them without any delays.
