All devices on the Web are identified by a specific number called an IP address, for instance 123.123.123.123. If you have a website, the domain that you type to be able to access it is to save you time, but the server where the website files are still has an IP. Since there are far more sites and devices than there're IPs, all of the shared web hosting servers have a number of websites under the very same IP, while when you use a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP too. 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'll enjoy better search engine positions because a dedicated IP generally means a quicker loading website. Also, you need such an IP when you plan to purchase an SSL certificate for your site and protect the data that your visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting

We offer dedicated IP addresses with all of our shared web hosting irrespective of the data center location and you will be able to obtain one or several IPs via your Hepsia Control Panel. An additional section will appear in your account and you'll be able to request, delete or view your IPs with a few clicks. You will be able to decide how many websites or subdomains will use a given IP since you can assign one with a couple of clicks to any hostname. For instance, www.domain.com can be the main site, which uses a server's shared IP, whereas shop.domain.com can be a subdomain where you offer services or goods online and it could have a dedicated IP combined with an SSL certificate. You can change the IP that a site uses from the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You may also set a few of your websites to use one and the same dedicated IP provided that there's no SSL set up for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you purchase a semi-dedicated server account from us, you have the opportunity to obtain as many dedicated IPs as you need depending on the needs you have. It takes a few clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to get a new IP and a couple of more to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The entire process is very simple and your site will start loading from your new IP address in a few minutes. Hepsia will enable you to see all the IPs that you can use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. Provided you would like to use an SSL certificate on some of your websites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you can take advantage of our SSL order wizard, which can assign a new IP and install the certificate once you send your order, so you will not have to modify anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account manually.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

In case you purchase a dedicated server, you probably want to run some web app or host a lot of Internet sites, so we supply three dedicated IPs absolutely free with every single package and you'll be able to use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain that you have registered here or via another company. The last mentioned option is really useful when you use your 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 make it easier to add more IP addresses as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes only a few clicks in the Upgrades section, therefore you'll be able to go ahead and employ the new dedicated IPs a couple of minutes after you submit your order.
