All devices on the World Wide Web are identified by a unique number called an IP address, such as 123.123.123.123. If you have a website, the domain name that you type to access it is for your convenience, however the server where the site files are still has an IP. Since there are many more websites and devices than there're IPs, all of the shared website hosting servers have a number of websites under the very same IP, whereas using a dedicated server you'll have a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you're able to acquire a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you may have far better search engine positions because a dedicated IP generally means a quicker loading website. Furthermore, you need such an IP if you would like to acquire an SSL certificate for your website and protect the data that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

If you use some of our shared hosting plans, you can add a dedicated IP to your account without any difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have selected for your account throughout the sign-up process, so it's possible 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 website, for example, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can modify each domain or subdomain separately through the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL through our company, you can use our auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you want to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP address takes only a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even when you haven't had a hosting account previously, you will not experience any kind of difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP. Any domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP address instead of the server's shared one and you will be able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also view all IPs that your websites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is accessible or you are already using it. In case that you wish to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you're able to select everything to be set up automatically. With this feature, our system will modify the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll set up the certificate within minutes, so you won't have to do anything on your end except for authorizing the SSL order via e-mail.
