All devices on the Web are identified by a unique number called an IP address, for example When you have a website, the domain that you type to be able to open it is for your convenience, however the server where your site files are still has an IP address. As there are far more websites and devices than there are IP addresses, all the shared web hosting servers have a number of sites under an identical IP, whereas when you use a dedicated server you'll have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you will be able to get a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you may enjoy far better search engine positions since a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading site. What's more, you need such an IP in case you would like to acquire an SSL certificate for your website and protect the info that your visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Web Hosting
When you use a cloud web hosting account on our cloud platform, you're able to buy a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks no matter where your account is - in the USA, Great Britain or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains area of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're allotted to. If you wish to use an SSL certificate to protect the information of your website visitors and you acquire it through our company, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not have 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 instance.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you get a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you'll have the option to obtain as many dedicated IPs as you'd like depending on your needs. It takes a couple of clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to acquire a new IP and a couple of more to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is very simple and your website will start opening from the new IP address in no time. Hepsia will allow you to view all the IPs which you're able to 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, which can assign a new IP and install the certificate as soon as you upload your order, so you won't have to change anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account by yourself.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
In case you acquire a dedicated server, you probably plan to run some web app or host numerous Internet sites, so we supply three dedicated IPs free of charge with every single package and you are able to use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name that you have registered here or via another company. The last option is really useful in case you use the dedicated server to host users' sites due to the fact that it'll give you trustworthiness and anonymity as a hosting supplier. The server billing Control Panel will allow you to add additional IPs as well - the upgrade is in increments of three and takes only a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, so you can go ahead and take advantage of the new dedicated IPs a few minutes after you send your order.
