All devices on the Internet are recognized by a unique number called an IP address, such as In case you have a website, the domain name that you enter to access it is for your convenience, however the server where your website files are still has an IP. As there are a lot more websites and devices than there're IP addresses, all shared hosting servers have a number of sites under the same IP, while using a dedicated server you'll get a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you're able to acquire a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you'll get superior search engine positions since a dedicated IP often means a quicker loading site. What's more, you need such an IP in case you would like to purchase an SSL certificate for your website and secure the information that your visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
If you use some of our shared hosting packages, you will be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account in no time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have picked for the account throughout the sign-up process, therefore it's possible to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for example, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can edit each domain or subdomain individually from the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL from our company, you will be able to use our auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you would like to use them.

If you get a semi-dedicated server account through us, you will get the opportunity to obtain as many dedicated IPs as you need depending on your preferences. It takes a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to buy a new IP plus a few more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is very simple and your website will start opening from the new IP address within minutes. Hepsia will allow you to view all IPs which you will be able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. Provided you want to use an SSL certificate on some of your sites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you may take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, that will assign a new IP and install the certificate the moment you send your order, so you won't need to change anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account manually.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting
As it is possible to run almost anything on a dedicated server, all of our packages feature 3 dedicated IP addresses included as standard. In case you wish to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you will be able to use the IPs that we provide absolutely free. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any website name that you've registered with us or any place else then employ them to point other domains to the dedicated server. If you run a website hosting company, for example, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone service provider. If you need more IPs than the three our plans include, you will be able to purchase additional ones in increments of 3 either throughout the signup process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
