All devices on the World Wide Web are identified by a unique number called an IP address, for example If you have a site, the domain name that you enter to open it is to save you time, however the server where your site files are still has an IP address. Because there're a lot more sites and devices than there're IPs, all the shared hosting servers have a number of sites under the same IP, whereas when you use a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you are able to get a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you'll enjoy better search engine positions because a dedicated IP usually means a faster loading site. Last but not least, you need such an IP if you intend to get an SSL certificate for your site and secure the information that your visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

When you use a shared hosting account on our cloud platform, you can 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 United States, the UK or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains section of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're allotted to. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate in order to secure the information of your website visitors and you obtain it from us, our system can assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you won't be required to anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you can still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a message board where users can share their opinion about your services, for instance.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP takes only a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you haven't had a web hosting account before, you will not experience any kind of difficulties to obtain and assign a dedicated IP. Each domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP address instead of the server's shared one and you can make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you can also see all IPs that your websites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is available or you are already using it. In case that you wish to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you can select everything to be installed automatically. With this particular feature, our system will change the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will install your certificate within a matter of minutes, so you won't need to do anything on your end except for authorizing the SSL order via electronic mail.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

Our VPS web hosting plans provide you with one dedicated IP address as standard and when you pick a hosting Control Panel (cPanel, Hepsia, DirectAdmin) during the signup process, you will obtain a second one as well free of cost. You'll be able to employ them the way you like - to access web content, to manage a web application, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any website that you have and use the latter for any other website that you would like to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you can take care of all the plan renewals, upgrades and domain registrations will enable you to order extra dedicated IP addresses when you need them for any purpose. A couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you can use them without delay.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated web hosting plans that we offer come with 3 dedicated IP addresses by default and cost-free. You will be able to employ them for any kind of purpose depending on the content that you have on the server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your clients may use to direct domains to their website hosting accounts, and many more. You will also be able to acquire additional dedicated IP addresses through the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones that come with the plan. You'll be able to acquire the IPs in sets of three and they will be added to your dedicated server soon after you submit your order, which means that you can start using them with no delays.
