All devices on the World Wide Web are identified by a unique number called an IP address, such as 123.123.123.123. In case you have a site, the domain that you enter in order to open it is to save you time, however the server where the website files are still has an IP. Since there are far more sites and devices than there're IPs, all the shared web hosting servers have a number of websites under the very same IP, whereas when you use a dedicated server you'll have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you can acquire a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you'll get far better search engine rankings because a dedicated IP usually means a faster loading website. Last but not least, you need such an IP in case you intend to acquire an SSL certificate for your website and shield the info that your visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting

Using a shared website hosting account on our cloud platform, you'll be able to purchase a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks regardless of where your account is - in the United States, the UK or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains area of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they are allotted to. If you would like to use an SSL certificate so as to secure the info of your site visitors and you get it from us, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you won't be required to anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you can still have a website in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion forum where users can share their opinion about your services, for instance.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

As it's possible to run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all of our packages feature 3 dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you would like to launch some server software or to set up an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you are able to use the IPs which we provide for free. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any domain name that you have registered with our company or somewhere else and then use them to point other domains to the dedicated server. When you manage a web hosting company, for instance, this option will contribute to your credibility as an independent provider. In case you need more IPs than the three our plans include, you are able to get additional ones in increments of three either throughout the registration process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
