All devices on the Web are identified by a special number called an IP address, such as When you have a website, the domain name that you type to load it is for your convenience, but the server where the website files are still has an IP address. Because there're a lot more sites and devices than there're IP addresses, all shared website hosting servers have a number of sites under an identical IP, whereas using a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you're able to acquire a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you'll get far better search engine positions as 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 website and shield the information that your visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Hosting
If you host your websites on our innovative cloud platform and you have a hosting plan, you can add a dedicated IP to your account at any time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This option is available in all of the data center facilities where we provide services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so regardless of your choice throughout the registration process, you'll be able to get a dedicated IP for your sites. You will be able to add or remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any time. In case any of the IPs that you obtain will be used for an SSL certificate, you can activate the automatic configuration attribute in our SSL order wizard and our system will request & assign the IP before it sets up the certificate automatically. Our versatile platform will allow you to use a dedicated IP for a number of sites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you acquire a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you'll get the opportunity to get as many dedicated IP addresses as you'd like depending on your needs. It takes just a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel to order your new IP and several more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is really easy and your site will start opening from your new IP address very quickly. Hepsia will enable you to see all the IPs which you will be able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. If you want to use an SSL certificate on some of your sites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you can take advantage of our SSL order wizard, that can assign a new IP and set up the certificate the moment you send your order, so you will not need to customize anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account manually.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Web Hosting
In case you get a virtual private server from our company, you'll get a dedicated IP address by default and another one when you acquire a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You will be able to use the IP addresses for any purpose - a website, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you'll be able to use to point to your VPS any website that you wish to host. You can also add more dedicated IP addresses to your VPS account when you need them. You can do this from the billing Control Panel that you will get in order to manage renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations and it will take just a few clicks. After you post your order, the additional IP addresses will be at your disposal, so you're able to use them as you see fit.
