All devices on the Internet are identified by a special number called an IP address, such as In case you have a website, the domain that you enter to access it is for your convenience, but the server where the website files are still has an IP. Due to the fact that there are many more sites and devices than there're IPs, all of the shared website hosting servers have a number of websites under an identical IP, whereas using a dedicated server you'll have a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you can obtain a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you may enjoy better search engine rankings since a dedicated IP usually means a quicker loading website. Last but not least, you need such an IP if you intend to purchase an SSL certificate for your website and secure the information that visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
In case you host your sites on our advanced cloud platform and you have a cloud hosting package, you are able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any moment and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This option is available in all of the data center facilities where we offer services - Chicago (US), London (UK) and Sydney (AU), so whatever your choice throughout the registration process, you're able to obtain a dedicated IP for your sites. You'll be able to add or remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any moment. If any of the IPs that you obtain will be used for an SSL certificate, you could activate the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard and our system will request & assign the IP before it sets up the certificate automatically. Our versatile platform will allow you to use a dedicated IP address for various sites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP address takes just a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even when you haven't had a website hosting account previously, you will not experience any kind of difficulties to obtain and assign a dedicated IP address. Every domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP rather than the server's shared one and you can make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you can also find all IPs that your sites can use and if a dedicated IP is accessible or you're already using it. In case that 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 set up automatically. Using this feature, our system will modify the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will set up the certificate in a matter of minutes, so you shall not 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 come with one dedicated IP as standard and in case you obtain a website hosting Control Panel (cPanel, Hepsia, DirectAdmin) throughout the signup process, you'll acquire an additional one too for free. You will be able to use them as you decide - to access web content, to manage a web app, to install an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any website that you have and use the latter for any other domain that you wish to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you can control all plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain name registrations will enable you to order more dedicated IP addresses when you need them for any purpose. A few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you'll be able to use them immediately.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
All the dedicated servers that we offer include 3 dedicated IP addresses by default and for free. You can use them for any purpose based on the content that you've got on the server - a video game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your clients may use to direct domain names to their website hosting accounts, and much more. You will also be able to order extra dedicated IP addresses via the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones which come with the plan. You can buy the IPs in sets of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server right after you send your order, so that you can start using them with no delays.
