All devices on the Web are recognized by a unique number called an IP address, for instance When you have a site, the domain that you enter to be able to load it is for your convenience, however the server where your website files are still has an IP address. Due to the fact that there're far more sites and devices than there're IPs, all the shared web hosting servers have a number of sites under an identical IP, while when you use a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you are able to obtain a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you will enjoy better search engine rankings since 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 Website Hosting

When you use some of our shared website hosting plans, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account with ease and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've selected for the account throughout the sign-up process, therefore you can take 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 instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can modify each domain or subdomain individually from the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL through us, you can use the auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you want to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server account from us, you'll have the option to get as many dedicated IP addresses as you need depending on your business needs. It will take just a few clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to order your new IP and a couple of more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The entire process is very easy and your website will start opening from the new IP address in no time. Hepsia will enable you to see all IP addresses that you can use, both shared and 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 want a dedicated IP for it, you may take advantage of our SSL order wizard, that can assign a new IP and set up the certificate once you upload your order, so you won't need to change anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account by yourself.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

In case you acquire a dedicated server, you probably plan to run a web app or host a lot of websites, so we provide three dedicated IPs gratis with each and every plan and you're able to use them the way you like - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain that you've registered here or through another company. The last option is very useful when you use your dedicated server to host customers' websites since it'll give you credibility and anonymity as a website hosting service provider. The server billing Control Panel will enable you to add additional IPs as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes only a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, which means that you're able to go ahead and start using your brand new dedicated IP addresses just a few minutes after you submit your order.
