All devices on the Web are identified by a unique number called an IP address, such as When you have a site, the domain that you type to be able to load it is to save you time, but the server where the site files are still has an IP. Since there are a lot more sites and devices than there are IP addresses, all shared hosting servers have a number of websites under an identical IP, while when you use a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you're able to get a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you will get better search engine rankings because a dedicated IP generally means a quicker loading website. In addition, you need such an IP if you would like to get an SSL certificate for your site and secure the information that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

When you use a cloud hosting account on our cloud platform, you will be able to acquire a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a few clicks regardless of where your account is - in the USA, Great Britain or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains part of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they're allotted to. When you wish to use an SSL certificate in order to secure the information of your visitors and you acquire it from our company, our system will assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you will not need to do anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you may still have a site in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP address - a community forum where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for instance.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP takes no more than a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you haven't had a hosting account previously, you will not experience any kind of difficulties to acquire 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 will be able to make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you will also find all IPs that your sites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is free or you are already using it. In case that you need an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you will be able to select everything to be set up automatically. When you use this particular feature, our system will change the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll set up your certificate within minutes, so you won't need to do anything on your end except for approving the SSL request via e-mail.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

Our VPS servers provide you with one dedicated IP by default and in case you obtain a website hosting Control Panel (DirectAdmin, cPanel, Hepsia) during the registration process, you will obtain a second one as well free of cost. You're able to employ them as you see fit - 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 which you have and use the latter for any other domain that you'd like to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you're able to take care of all plan renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations will allow you to order extra dedicated IP addresses if 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

Since you will be able to run almost anything on a dedicated server, all our plans come with three dedicated IP addresses included by default. In case you would like to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you can use the IPs which we provide for free. You can also register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any website name that you've registered through us or any place else then use them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. If you own a website hosting company, for instance, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone service provider. In case you need more IP addresses than the three the packages include, you can buy additional ones in increments of three either throughout the registration process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
