All devices on the Web are recognized by a specific number called an IP address, such as When you have a site, the domain that you type in order to open it is to save you time, yet the server where your website files are still has an IP address. Due to the fact that there're far more sites and devices than there are IP addresses, all of the shared hosting servers have a number of sites under the very same IP, while with a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you're able to obtain a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you will enjoy superior search engine rankings because a dedicated IP often means a quicker loading site. Also, you need such an IP when you plan to obtain an SSL certificate for your website and protect the info that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

When you use a shared hosting account on our cloud platform, you can obtain a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with several clicks regardless of where your account is - in the USA, the United Kingdom or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains area of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they are assigned to. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate so as to secure the information of your website visitors and you obtain it from us, our system can assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you may still have a website 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 Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll get the option to get as many dedicated IPs as you need depending on your needs. It takes just a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel to order your new IP and a few more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is very simple and your site will start loading from the new IP address in no time. Hepsia will allow you to see all IPs that you're able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. In case you'd like to use an SSL certificate on any of your sites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you may take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, that will assign a new IP and set up the certificate the moment you submit your order, so you will not have to modify anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account manually.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

If you buy a VPS server from our company, you will be given a dedicated IP address as standard and an extra one if you acquire a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You will be able to use the IPs for any sort of purpose - a 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. You can even add extra dedicated IPs to your VPS account if you need them. This can be done from the billing Control Panel that you'll get to manage renewals, upgrades and domain registrations and it will take no more than a couple of clicks. Soon after you send your order, the additional IP addresses will be accessible, so you are able to use them the way you like.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated servers that we provide come with three dedicated IP addresses as standard and for free. You'll be able to use them for any purpose based on the content that you have on the 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 that your customers can use to point domains to their website hosting accounts, etc. You will also be able to get extra dedicated IPs through the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones that come with your plan. You will be able to acquire the IPs in sets of three and they will be added to your dedicated server right after you send your order, which means that you can use them with no delays.
