All devices on the Web are recognized by a special number called an IP address, such as In case you have a website, the domain name that you type to open it is for your convenience, yet the server where the site files are still has an IP address. Because there are far more sites and devices than there are IP addresses, all shared hosting servers have a number of sites under an identical IP, while with a dedicated server you'll get a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you are able to obtain a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you'll have superior search engine positions because a dedicated IP usually means a faster loading site. In addition, you need such an IP in case you plan to get an SSL certificate for your site and shield the information that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting

When you use any of our shared website hosting plans, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account in no time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have picked for the account throughout the sign-up process, which means that you are able to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce site, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can modify each and every domain or subdomain individually through the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL through our company, you are able to use our auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you wish to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, will make it very easy to obtain a dedicated IP address and use it for each website that you have in your account irrespective of whether it is under a domain or a subdomain. With only a couple of clicks you will be able to order the IP and when our system assigns it, you can set it for one or several websites via the Hosted Domains area of the Control Panel. In the same location you'll also be able to see what IP is used by each domain or subdomain, a long list of the dedicated IP addresses as well as if and what site they're assigned to? Provided the IP you will need is for an SSL certificate, you will be able to take advantage of our useful SSL wizard which will make the whole process very easy as it will request and assign an IP to the preferred domain/subdomain and then install the SSL without any action on your side apart from placing the order.
