All devices on the Internet are identified by a unique number called an IP address, such as In case you have a website, the domain name that you type to load it is to save you time, yet the server where the website files are still has an IP address. As there are a lot more websites and devices than there are IPs, all of the shared hosting servers have a number of websites under the same IP, whereas using a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP too. 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 advantage would be that you'll get far better search engine rankings as a dedicated IP generally means a quicker loading website. In addition, you need such an IP in case you want to purchase an SSL certificate for your website and shield the data that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting

If you use any of our cloud website hosting packages, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account in no time and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have picked for your account throughout the sign-up process, so you will be able to take 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 example, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can modify each domain or subdomain independently from the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL from our company, you are able to use the auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you would like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

The process is very easy and your website will start opening from the new IP address very quickly. Hepsia will enable you to view all of the IP addresses that you can use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate on any of your sites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you can take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, that can assign a new IP and set up the certificate the moment you send your order, so you do not have to change anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account manually.

The billing Control Panel where you'll be able to manage all of the plan renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations will allow you to order extra dedicated IP addresses when you need them for any purpose. Just a couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you'll be able to use them immediately.
