All devices on the Internet are recognized by a special number called an IP address, such as When you have a website, the domain that you enter to be able to load it is to save you time, yet the server where your site files are still has an IP address. Considering that there're many more websites and devices than there are IP addresses, all the shared website hosting servers have a number of sites under the very same IP, whereas when you use a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you'll be able to acquire a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you will have superior search engine positions because a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading website. Last but not least, you need such an IP if you want to obtain an SSL certificate for your website and secure the info that your visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
When you use a cloud hosting account on our cloud platform, you will be able to acquire a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks no matter where your account is - in the US, the United Kingdom or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains area of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're assigned to. When you want to use an SSL certificate to protect the info of your site visitors and you acquire it through us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you may still have a site in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP - a discussion forum where users can share opinions about your services, for example.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP takes only a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you have not had a website hosting account before, you will not have any kind of difficulties to obtain and assign a dedicated IP address. Every domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP other than the server's shared one and you're able to make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you can also find all IPs that your sites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is free 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 are able to select everything to be set up automatically. With this feature, our system will change the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll install your certificate in a couple of minutes, so you won't have to do anything on your end except for approving the SSL request via e-mail.
