All devices on the World Wide Web are identified by a unique number called an IP address, such as 123.123.123.123. When you have a site, the domain that you type to be able to open it is for your convenience, but the server where your website files are still has an IP. Due to the fact that there're a lot more sites and devices than there are IP addresses, all the shared hosting servers have a number of sites under the very same IP, while when you use a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP as well. 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. An advantage would be that you may have improved search engine rankings because a dedicated IP often means a quicker loading site. Furthermore, you need such an IP when you would like to acquire an SSL certificate for your website and protect the information that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

We supply dedicated IP addresses with all our shared hosting whatever the data center location and you are able to purchase one or several IPs via your Hepsia Control Panel. A new section will show up inside your account and you will be able to request, view or delete your IPs with several clicks. You are able to select what number of websites or subdomains will use a particular IP as you can assign one with a couple of clicks to every hostname. To give an example, www.domain.com can be the main site, that uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be a subdomain where you offer goods or services on the internet and it might have a dedicated IP address combined with an SSL certificate. You can change the IP which a site uses via the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You may also set a few of your websites to use one and the same dedicated IP provided that there's no SSL installed for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP address takes only a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even when you have not had a web hosting account before, you will not have any kind of difficulties to acquire and assign a dedicated IP. Every domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP instead of the server's shared one and you can make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also find all IPs that your sites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is free or you're already using it. If you need an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you'll be able to select everything to be installed automatically. When you use this particular feature, our system will modify the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will set up your certificate within minutes, so you won't have to do anything on your end other than authorizing the SSL order through electronic mail.
