All devices on the Web are recognized by a special number called an IP address, such as When you have a website, the domain name that you type in order to open it is to save you time, yet the server where your site files are still has an IP address. Since there are many more sites and devices than there're IP addresses, all the shared website hosting servers have a number of sites under an identical IP, whereas with a dedicated server you'll have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you are able to get a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you will enjoy improved search engine positions because a dedicated IP usually means a quicker loading website. Furthermore, you need such an IP when you plan to buy an SSL certificate for your site and protect the data that your visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting

With a shared website hosting account on our cloud platform, you're able to buy a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks wherever your account is - in the US, Great Britain or Australia. This is done from the Hosted Domains area of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they're allotted to. When you want to use an SSL certificate in order to protect the information of your website visitors and you obtain it through us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not need to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you may still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP address - a message board where users can share opinions about your services, for instance.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP address takes only a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even when you haven't had a web hosting account previously, you will not have any kind of difficulties to obtain and assign a dedicated IP address. Every domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP other than the server's shared one and you will be able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also view all IPs that your websites can use and if a dedicated IP is free or you are already using it. If you wish to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you will be able to select everything to be installed automatically. When you use this particular feature, our system will modify the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll install the certificate within a matter of minutes, so you won't need to do anything on your end apart from authorizing your SSL order via electronic mail.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

You can also use the IPs to make child name servers for one or more websites that you have then you can set them as NS records for any other domain that you'd like to redirect to your Virtual Server. When you need additional dedicated IP addresses, it will take you just a few clicks in your billing Control Panel to get them and they will be allotted to your server in minutes.

As you're able to run more or less anything on a dedicated server, all of our packages come with 3 dedicated IP addresses included by default. In case you would like to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you are able to use the IPs that we provide you with free of charge. You can also register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you have registered through us or any place else and use them to point other domains to the dedicated server. When you have a web hosting company, for example, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone supplier. If you need more IPs than the three our plans come with, you will be able to purchase extra ones in increments of 3 either throughout the registration process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
