All devices on the Web are recognized by a special number called an IP address, for instance If you have a website, the domain that you enter in order to access it is to save you time, but the server where the site files are still has an IP address. Due to the fact that there are a lot more sites and devices than there are IP addresses, all the shared website hosting servers have a number of websites under the very same IP, while when you use a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you will be able to acquire a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you will enjoy far better search engine rankings as a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading site. What's more, you need such an IP in case you plan to purchase an SSL certificate for your website and protect the info that your visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting
If you host your websites on our up-to-date cloud platform and you have a shared web hosting package, you are able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with only a few clicks. This option is available in all the data center facilities where we provide services - Chicago (US), London (UK) and Sydney (AU), so irrespective of your choice during the registration process, you will be able to obtain a dedicated IP for your sites. You will be able to 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 purchase will be used for an SSL certificate, you could enable the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard and our system will request and assign the IP before it sets up the certificate automatically. Our flexible 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 purchase a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will have the option to get as many dedicated IPs as you would like depending on your needs. It will take just a few clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to order a new IP plus several more to assign it to a domain or a subdomain.

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. If you would like to use an SSL certificate on some of your websites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you can take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, which can assign a new IP and install the certificate as soon as you send your order, so you don't need to change anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account by yourself.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
In case you acquire a VPS server from us, you will receive one dedicated IP address automatically and another one in case you obtain a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You can use the IPs for any kind of purpose - an Internet site, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you'll be able to use to point to your VPS any website that you would like to host. In addition, you can add extra dedicated IPs to the VPS account any time you need them. This can be done from the billing Control Panel that you'll get to take care of renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it takes only a couple of clicks. After you send your order, the extra IP addresses will be at your disposal, so you're able to use them the way you like.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Considering that it's possible to run more or less anything on a dedicated server, all our plans come with three dedicated IP addresses included by default. In case you need to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you are able to use the IPs that we supply absolutely free. You can also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any website name that you have registered through us or any place else and use them to point other domains to the dedicated server. When you manage a hosting company, for instance, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as an independent service provider. In case you need more IPs than the three our packages feature, you will be able to get additional ones in increments of 3 either throughout the registration process or from your billing Control Panel any time.
