All devices on the Web are recognized by a special number called an IP address, such as When you have a site, the domain name that you enter in order to open it is for your convenience, but the server where the website files are still has an IP. Since there're many more sites and devices than there're IP addresses, all shared website hosting servers have a number of websites under an identical IP, whereas with a dedicated server you'll have 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. One benefit would be that you will have better search engine rankings as a dedicated IP often means a quicker loading site. Also, you need such an IP in case you would like to get an SSL certificate for your site and protect the information that visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting
If you use any of our web hosting packages, you can add a dedicated IP address to your account without any difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you've selected for your account during the registration process, therefore you'll be able to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce site, for example, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can adjust each domain or subdomain separately through the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL from us, you will be able to use our auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you'd like to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
With only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to add one or multiple dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated hosting plan and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains section of Hepsia will allow you to view the available IPs and to keep track of the ones that are in use in no time. Provided you wish to get a new IP for an SSL certificate, you're able to use the auto-configuration function, that is available in our SSL order wizard. When you enable this option, you will not have to do anything after you post your order as our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain involved, then add the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. This way, you're able to secure the info that visitors submit on your website even when you lack previous experience with this kind of matters.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Since all of our dedicated web hosting plans offer three dedicated IP addresses provided in the plans by default, we will give you a head start in case you want to run any application that requires this kind of an IP. We supply them free of charge and you can use them for as long as you use your server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain name which you host, an SSL certificate for any website on the server, a software server (online games, VOIP), and so on. From the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you will receive to manage renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you will also be able to obtain more dedicated IPs in groups of three at any moment. They'll be assigned to your server in no time, so you can start using them for your websites and web-based applications without delay.
