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 that you type in order to open it is for your convenience, but the server where your website files are still has an IP address. As there are many 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 with a dedicated server you'll get a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you will be able to get a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you may get better search engine rankings since a dedicated IP usually means a faster loading website. What is more, you need such an IP when you plan to acquire an SSL certificate for your site and protect the information that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

If you use some of our shared hosting plans, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account without any difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've picked for your account during the sign-up process, which means that you will be able to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce site, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can edit each domain or subdomain independently from the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL through our company, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you wish to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With only a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to add one or multiple dedicated IP addresses to your Linux semi-dedicated hosting and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will allow you to view the available IP addresses and to keep track of the ones that are in use in no time. Provided you would like to obtain a new IP for an SSL certificate, you're able to use the auto-configuration function, that is available in our SSL order wizard. If you enable this feature, you will not need to do anything after you post your order as our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain involved, then add the SSL certificate - all of this automatically and without any action on your end. This way, you'll be able to shield the details that visitors upload on your website even if you do not have any previous experience with this kind of matters.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Web Hosting

If you acquire a virtual private server from us, you'll be given one dedicated IP address automatically and another one if you get a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You'll be able to use the IP addresses for any purpose - an Internet site, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you are able to use to point to your VPS any website which you would like to host. Additionally, you can add more dedicated IP addresses to your VPS account if you need them. You can do this through the billing Control Panel that you'll get to take care of renewals, upgrade purchases and domain name registrations and it will take no more than a couple of clicks. After you submit your order, the added IP addresses will be available, so you're able to use them the way you like.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All of the Linux dedicated servers hosting that we offer feature three dedicated IP addresses by default and free of charge. You're able to use them for any type of purpose based on the content that you have on your server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your clients may use to point domains to their hosting accounts, and many other things. You will also be able to purchase additional dedicated IP addresses through the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones that come with your server. You can buy the IPs in sets of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server right after you submit your order, which means that you can start using them with no delays.
