All devices on the World Wide Web are recognized by a unique number called an IP address, for example When you have a site, the domain name that you enter in order to load it is to save you time, however the server where your website files are still has an IP. Considering that there are a lot more websites and devices than there are IP addresses, all of the shared hosting servers have a number of websites under an identical IP, while when you use a dedicated server you'll have a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you will be able to obtain a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you'll have better search engine rankings as a dedicated IP usually means a quicker loading website. Last but not least, you need such an IP in case you want to obtain an SSL certificate for your website and secure the data that your visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting

If you use any of our shared website hosting plans, you can add a dedicated IP address to your account in no time 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 the account throughout the sign-up process, therefore you're able to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce site, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can adjust each domain or subdomain independently from the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL from our company, you'll be able to use our auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you would like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you acquire a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you have the opportunity to obtain as many dedicated IP addresses as you like depending on your preferences. It takes a couple of clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel to order a new IP plus a couple of more to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The entire process is very simple and your website will start loading from your new IP address very quickly. Hepsia will allow you to see all the IP addresses that you'll be able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. If you'd like to use an SSL certificate on any of your websites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you may take advantage of our SSL order wizard, which will assign a new IP and install the certificate once you send your order, so you don't have to customize anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account by yourself.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Hosting

Our VPS hosting packages feature one dedicated IP address as standard and in case you pick a hosting Control Panel (cPanel, Hepsia, DirectAdmin) during the registration process, you will get an extra one as well free of cost. You can employ them as you decide - to access site content, to manage a web application, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any website which you have and use the latter for any other domain that you want to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you can manage all plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain registrations will enable you to order more dedicated IPs when you need them for any purpose. Just a couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you can use them instantly.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting

Due to the fact that you are able to run almost anything on a dedicated server, all our packages feature three dedicated IP addresses included as standard. In case you want to launch some server software or to set up an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you will be able to use the IPs that we provide absolutely free. You can also register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you have registered with our company or elsewhere then employ them to point other domains to the dedicated server. When you own a website hosting company, for example, this option will contribute to your credibility as an independent service provider. If you need more IPs than the three the packages provide you with, you will be able to purchase additional ones in increments of 3 either throughout the signup process or from your billing Control Panel any time.
