All devices on the World Wide Web are recognized by a special number called an IP address, such as If you have a site, the domain that you type to access it is for your convenience, but the server where your site files are still has an IP. As there're many more websites and devices than there're IP addresses, all shared hosting servers have a number of websites under the same IP, while using a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you are able to acquire a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you'll have far better search engine rankings since a dedicated IP generally means a quicker loading website. Also, you need such an IP if you would like to buy an SSL certificate for your site and secure the data that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting

When you use a shared web hosting account on our cloud platform, you will be able to acquire a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks no matter where your account is - in the USA, 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 wish to use an SSL certificate so as to secure the information of your visitors and you get it through us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not need to do 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 address - a discussion board where users can share their opinion about your services, for instance.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting

In case you get a dedicated server, you probably would like to run a web application or host a lot of Internet sites, so we provide three dedicated IP addresses free of charge with each plan and you'll be able to use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name that you've registered here or via another company. The last option is very helpful in case you use the dedicated server to host customers' websites since it'll give you credibility and anonymity as a hosting company. The server billing Control Panel will allow you to add more 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 will be able to go ahead and employ your brand new dedicated IP addresses a few minutes after you send your order.
