All devices on the Web are recognized by a specific number called an IP address, such as If you have a website, the domain that you type to access it is to save you time, yet the server where your site files are still has an IP address. As there're a lot more websites and devices than there are IPs, all the shared web hosting servers have a number of websites under an identical IP, while when you use a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you'll be able to get a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you may have better search engine rankings because a dedicated IP usually means a quicker loading site. Also, you need such an IP if you want to buy an SSL certificate for your site and secure the info that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting

Using a website hosting account on our cloud platform, you are able to obtain a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a few clicks wherever your account is - in the USA, Britain or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains section of the 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 assigned to. If you would like to use an SSL certificate so as to protect the information of your visitors and you get it through us, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you will not be required to anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you may still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion forum where users can share opinions about your services, for example.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you acquire a semi-dedicated server account from us, you will get the opportunity to acquire as many dedicated IP addresses as you'd like depending on your business needs. It will take just a couple of clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to purchase a new IP plus a couple of more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is very easy and your site will start opening from the new IP address very quickly. Hepsia will enable you to view all the IP addresses that you're able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. In case you want to use an SSL certificate on any of your sites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you may take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, which will assign a new IP and install the certificate once you upload your order, so you don't need to adjust anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account by yourself.
