All devices on the Web are recognized by a specific number called an IP address, such as In case you have a site, the domain that you enter in order to load it is for your convenience, but the server where your website files are still has an IP address. Because there are a lot more websites and devices than there are IP addresses, all the shared website hosting servers have a number of sites under an identical IP, whereas when you use a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you're able to obtain a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you may get superior search engine rankings because a dedicated IP usually means a faster loading site. Last but not least, you need such an IP when you plan to get an SSL certificate for your website and protect the information that your visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting

With a shared web hosting account on our cloud platform, you can get a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a couple of clicks regardless of where your account is - in the US, the UK or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains section 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 are assigned to. In case you want to use an SSL certificate in order to secure the info of your website visitors and you obtain it through us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you won't need to do anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you can still have a site in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP address - a message board where users can share opinions about your services, for example.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with our semi-dedicated server plans, will make it very simple to buy a dedicated IP address and use it for each website that you have in the account regardless if it's under a domain or a subdomain. With only a few clicks you are able to order the IP and as soon as our system assigns it, you will be able to set it for one or several sites from the Hosted Domains part of the Control Panel. In the same place you can also view what IP is used by each and every domain or subdomain, an index of the dedicated IPs as well as if and what site they're assigned to? If the IP you need is for an SSL certificate, you will be able to take full advantage of our helpful SSL wizard that will make the overall process very simple due to the fact that it'll request and assign an IP to the preferred domain/subdomain and after that set up the SSL without the need of any action on your side aside from placing your order.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Web Hosting

If you buy a virtual private server from our company, you'll receive a dedicated IP address automatically and another one in case you obtain a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You will be able to use the IPs for any sort of purpose - an Internet site, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you are able to use to point to your VPS any domain name that you plan to host. Also, you can add extra dedicated IPs to the VPS account if you need them. This can be done from the billing Control Panel that you'll get to control renewals, upgrade purchases and domain name registrations and it will take no more than a couple of clicks. Shortly after you post your order, the additional IP addresses will be available, so you can use them the way you like.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Since you're able to run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all our packages come with 3 dedicated IP addresses included by default. If you would like to launch some server software or to set up an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you'll be able to use the IPs that we supply for free. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you have registered with our company or somewhere else and then use them to point other domains to the dedicated server. If you manage a hosting company, for instance, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone provider. When you need more IPs than the three the plans include, you are able to get extra ones in increments of three either during the signup process or from your billing Control Panel any time.
