A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the net that's assigned to a device or a site. Shared web hosting servers usually have a lot of sites under the same IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs that are not shared with anyone else. Even if you use a regular shared account, however, it's possible to acquire a dedicated IP address that will be used only by your websites - one or a few. Because this can add up to the speed of awebsite, it's much more likely that the website will get better search engine result positions. Of course, that isn't the only factor, but it is likely to help you have more visitors and prospective customers. The dedicated IP is also required if you intend to encode the info exchanged between a website and its visitors using an SSL certificate.

If you host your sites on our cutting-edge cloud platform and you have a shared website hosting plan, you can add a dedicated IP to your account at any moment and assign it to any domain or subdomain with only a couple of clicks. This option is accessible in all of the data centers where we offer services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so whatever your choice during the registration process, you will be able to acquire a dedicated IP address for your websites. You can add or remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any moment. If any of the IPs that you obtain will be used for an SSL certificate, you can enable the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard and our system will request and assign the IP before it installs your certificate automatically. Our adaptable platform will enable you to use a dedicated IP address for a variety of websites as well if it is not in use by an SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you have the opportunity to obtain as many dedicated IPs as you'd like depending on your needs. It takes a couple of clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to acquire your new IP plus a few more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is very simple and your website will start loading from your new IP address in a few minutes. Hepsia will allow you to view all the IP addresses which you will be able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate on some of your websites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you may take advantage of our SSL order wizard, which will assign a new IP and set up the certificate the moment you upload your order, so you do not need to adjust anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account by yourself.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All VPS servers that we offer come with a dedicated IP address, so you won't share the IP with some other customer with a different account on the very same server. In case you choose a hosting Control Panel for the server throughout the registration process, you'll get an additional dedicated IP too and you'll be able to use it for any content that you host on the VPS - a website, an app, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, etcetera. If you would like to have more IPs, you'll be able to order them as a further upgrade through your billing Control Panel and they will be assigned to your server very quickly. You'll be able to control your IPs without difficulty from your website hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel which you will get to manage the virtual machine.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
All of the dedicated servers that we supply come with three dedicated IP addresses by default and absolutely free. You are able to employ them for any type of purpose based on the content that you have on the server - a video game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your clients can use to direct domain names to their web hosting accounts, etceterra. You can also buy more dedicated IPs via the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones that come with the server. You can buy the IPs in groups of three and they will be added to your dedicated server soon after you send your order, so you can start using them with no delays.
