All devices on the Web are recognized by a special number called an IP address, such as In case you have a site, the domain name that you enter to access it is for your convenience, but the server where the website files are still has an IP address. Because there are far more websites and devices than there're IPs, all the shared website hosting servers have a number of sites under the same IP, whereas when you use a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you can acquire 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 since a dedicated IP usually means a quicker loading website. Furthermore, you need such an IP in case you want to acquire an SSL certificate for your website and secure the info that your visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting

If you use some of our shared web hosting packages, you can add a dedicated IP to your account without any difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have selected for the account during the registration process, therefore you are able to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can edit each domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL through our company, you can use the auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you'd like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you get a semi-dedicated server account through us, you will have the option to acquire as many dedicated IP addresses as you would like depending on your preferences.

The whole process is very simple and your website will start loading from the new IP address in minutes. Hepsia will allow you to view all of the IPs which you are able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. If you want to use an SSL certificate on any of your sites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you may take advantage of our SSL order wizard, that will assign a new IP and set up the certificate as soon as you submit your order, so you will not have to customize anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account by yourself.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Hosting

All the Linux VPS hosting packages that we provide include a dedicated IP address, so you will not share your IP with some other client with another account on the same machine. If you choose a hosting Control Panel for the server during the registration process, you will get an extra dedicated IP as well and you'll be able to use it for any content that you host on your VPS - an Internet site, an application, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, etcetera. In case you need more IPs, you can order them as an additional upgrade from your billing Control Panel and they will be assigned to your server quickly. You will be able to control the IPs with ease using your web hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel which you will get to manage the virtual machine.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting

In case you get a dedicated server, you probably plan to run a web application or host a number of sites, so we provide three dedicated IPs free of charge with every single package and you can use them the way you like - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name which you have registered here or through another company. The last option is very helpful when you use the dedicated server to host users' Internet sites due to the fact that it'll give you authority and anonymity as a web hosting service provider. The server billing Control Panel will make it easier to add extra IPs as well - the upgrade is in increments of three and takes only a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, so you will be able to go ahead and take advantage of the new dedicated IP addresses just a few minutes after you submit your order.
