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 enter to open it is for your convenience, however the server where the site files are still has an IP. Since there are many more sites and devices than there're IP addresses, all the shared web hosting servers have a number of websites under an identical IP, whereas when you use a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you will be able to obtain a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you'll get better search engine rankings as a dedicated IP often means a quicker loading website. Also, you need such an IP in case you intend to get an SSL certificate for your website and secure the data that visitors submit on it.

If you host your sites on our revolutionary cloud platform and you have a hosting plan, you can 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 accessible in all the data centers where we offer services - Chicago (US), London (UK) and Sydney (AU), so whatever your choice throughout the registration process, you will be able to obtain a dedicated IP for your websites. You can add / remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any moment. In case any of the IPs that you purchase will be used for an SSL certificate, you could enable the automatic configuration attribute in our SSL order wizard then our system will request and assign the IP before it installs the certificate automatically. Our versatile platform will allow you to use a dedicated IP for multiple sites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.

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 easy and intuitive to use, so even when you haven't had a hosting account previously, you won't have any difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP address. Each domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP address other than the server's shared one and you will be able to make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you will also view all IPs that your sites can use and if a dedicated IP is available or you're already using it. If you want an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you are able to select everything to be set up automatically. When you use this feature, our system will modify the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll set up your certificate in a matter of minutes, so you will not have to do anything on your end apart from approving your SSL order via electronic mail.

This can be done from the billing Control Panel that you will get to manage renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it takes just a few clicks. Shortly after you send your order, the extra IP addresses will be at your disposal, so you will be able to use them as you see fit.
