All devices on the Internet are identified by a special number called an IP address, for example 184.108.40.206. In case you have a site, the domain that you type to access it is for your convenience, but the server where the website files are still has an IP address. Due to the fact that there're many more sites and devices than there are IP addresses, all shared hosting servers have a number of sites under the same 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. An advantage would be that you'll have improved search engine rankings as a dedicated IP often means a quicker loading site. Last but not least, you need such an IP if you would like to get an SSL certificate for your site and protect the information that visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting
If you use any of our shared web hosting
plans, you can add a dedicated IP address to your account without any difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you've selected for the account throughout the registration process, so 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 e-commerce website, for example, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can edit each and every domain or subdomain individually from the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL through our company, you're able to use the auto-configuration instrument, that 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 Hosting
When you acquire a semi-dedicated server
account from our company, you will have the opportunity to obtain as many dedicated IP addresses as you'd like depending on your preferences. It takes a couple of clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to buy your new IP plus a few more to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is really easy and your site will start loading from the new IP address in minutes. Hepsia will enable you to view all IP addresses which you are able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. If you would like to use an SSL certificate on any of your websites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you may take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, that 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 website hosting account by yourself.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Web Hosting
All of our Linux VPS web hosting services
feature one dedicated IP address by default and if you choose a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin) during the registration process, you will obtain an additional one as well free of cost. You'll be able to use them as you see fit - to access site content, to manage a web application, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain name that you have and use the latter for any other domain that you wish to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you are able to control all plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain registrations will allow you to order more dedicated IP addresses if you need them for any purpose. Just a couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you will be able to use them instantly.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Since all our dedicated hosting services
feature 3 dedicated IP addresses as part of the plans by default, we'll give you a serious advantage in case you would like to run any application which needs such an IP. We provide them for free and you're able to use them for as long as you use the server for anything you'd like - child name servers for any domain name that you host, an SSL certificate for any site on your server, a software server (online games, VOIP), etcetera. From the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll obtain to organize renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you'll also be able to obtain more dedicated IP addresses in sets of three at any time. They will be assigned to your server in no time, so that you can start using them for your websites and web-based apps without delay.
