All devices on the Web are recognized by a unique number called an IP address, such as When you have a website, the domain name that you enter to access it is for your convenience, but the server where your website files are still has an IP. Because there are a lot more sites and devices than there're IPs, all the shared website hosting servers have a number of sites under the very same IP, whereas when you use a dedicated server you'll have a dedicated IP as well. 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 may get far better search engine rankings because a dedicated IP generally means a quicker loading site. Also, you need such an IP when you plan to purchase an SSL certificate for your website and shield the info that your visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

Using a shared hosting account on our cloud platform, you will be able to buy a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with several clicks regardless of where your account is - in the USA, Great Britain or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains area of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they're allotted to. In case you want to use an SSL certificate in order to protect the information of your website visitors and you obtain it through our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not be required to anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you can still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a community forum where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for example.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP takes no more than a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even when you haven't had a hosting account before, you will not encounter any kind of difficulties to acquire and assign a dedicated IP. Every domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP rather than the server's shared one and you're able to make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you will also find all IPs that your sites can use and if a dedicated IP is available or you're already using it. In case that you want an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you're able to select everything to be set up automatically. Using this feature, our system will modify the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll set up your certificate within a matter of minutes, so you won't need to do anything on your end other than approving your SSL order via email.
