All devices on the Web are recognized by a specific number called an IP address, for example When you have a site, the domain that you type in order to access it is for your convenience, but the server where the website files are still has an IP. As there are a lot more sites and devices than there are IP addresses, all the shared web hosting servers have a number of websites under an identical IP, whereas using a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you'll be able to obtain a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you will get improved search engine positions since a dedicated IP often means a faster loading website. What is more, you need such an IP in case you intend to get an SSL certificate for your website and shield the information that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting

When you use some of our shared website hosting plans, you can add a dedicated IP address to your account without difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you've chosen for your account during the signup process, so you will be able to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for example, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can adjust each domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL from us, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you'd like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP address takes no more than a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you have not had a hosting account before, you will not have any difficulties to order and assign a dedicated IP address. Each domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP in place of the server's shared one and you will be able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you will also view all IPs that your websites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is free or you're already using it. In case that you need an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you are able to select everything to be set up automatically. With this particular feature, our system will change the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll install your certificate in a matter of minutes, so you shall not have to do anything on your end other than authorizing the SSL request via email.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Web Hosting

Our VPS web hosting services provide you with one dedicated IP address as standard and if you order a website hosting Control Panel (DirectAdmin, cPanel, Hepsia) during the signup process, you'll obtain a second one too free of charge. You will be able to employ them the way you like - to access website content, to manage a web application, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain name which you have and use the latter for any other domain that you need to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you're able to take care of all the plan renewals, upgrades and domain registrations will enable you to order extra dedicated IPs if you need them for any purpose. A few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you'll be able to use them straight away.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you order a dedicated server, you probably would like to run some web app or host numerous sites, so we supply 3 dedicated IP addresses completely free with every single package and you will be able to use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name which you have registered here or through another company. The last mentioned option is really useful in case you use the dedicated server to host customers' Internet sites as it will give you trustworthiness and anonymity as a web hosting service provider. The server billing Control Panel will enable you to add extra IP addresses as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes only a few clicks in the Upgrades section, so you're able to go ahead and start using your brand new dedicated IP addresses a few minutes after you send your order.
