All devices on the Internet are identified by a unique number called an IP address, for instance In case you have a site, the domain that you type to open it is to save you time, however the server where the website files are still has an IP address. As there are far more websites and devices than there're IP addresses, all the shared website hosting servers have a number of websites under the same IP, while with a dedicated server you'll have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you are able to obtain a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you will get superior search engine positions as a dedicated IP often means a faster loading website. Last but not least, you need such an IP when you intend to get an SSL certificate for your site and secure the data that visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Web Hosting
Using a cloud web hosting account on our cloud platform, you're able to purchase a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with several clicks no matter where your account is - in the United States, Great Britain or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains section of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're assigned to. When you want to use an SSL certificate in order to protect the info of your visitors and you obtain it through our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you will not be required to anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you may still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion forum where users can share opinions about your services, for instance.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you buy a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll get the opportunity to get as many dedicated IPs as you like depending on your needs. It takes a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to acquire your new IP plus a few more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The entire process is very easy and your website will start opening from the new IP address within minutes. Hepsia will allow you to view all of the IP addresses that you're able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. If you would like to use an SSL certificate on any of your websites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you can take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, that can assign a new IP and install the certificate the moment you send your order, so you do not need to adjust anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account by yourself.
