All devices on the Internet are recognized by a unique number called an IP address, such as If you have a site, the domain name that you enter in order to access it is for your convenience, yet the server where the website files are still has an IP address. Due to the fact that there are many more sites and devices than there're IPs, all of the shared website hosting servers have a number of sites under an identical IP, whereas when you use a dedicated server you'll get a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you'll be able to get a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you may have improved search engine positions since a dedicated IP generally means a quicker loading site. Last but not least, you need such an IP in case you plan to buy an SSL certificate for your website and secure the info that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Hosting

We supply dedicated IPs with all our hosting plans whatever the data center location and you'll be able to purchase one or several IPs from your Hepsia Control Panel. An additional section will appear in your account and you can request, delete or view your IPs with just a few clicks. You can choose how many sites or subdomains will use a particular IP as you can assign one with a couple of clicks to any hostname. For instance, can be your main site, which uses a server's shared IP, while can be a subdomain where you offer services or goods on the web and it can have a dedicated IP address along with an SSL certificate. You can change the IP which a website uses from the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You may also set some of your sites to use the same dedicated IP as long as there is no SSL set up for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you buy a semi-dedicated server account from us, you'll get the opportunity to get as many dedicated IPs as you need depending on your business needs. It will take a couple of clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to acquire your new IP and several more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The entire process is very simple and your site will start opening from your new IP address in minutes. Hepsia will allow you to see all of the IPs that you're able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. In case you'd like to use an SSL certificate on any of your sites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you can take advantage of our SSL order wizard, which will assign a new IP and install the certificate once you submit your order, so you don't need to modify anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account by yourself.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

All of our VPS web hosting plans provide you with one dedicated IP address by default and in case you obtain a web hosting Control Panel (cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia) throughout the signup process, you'll get an extra one too for free. You can use them as you decide - to access online content, to manage a web application, to install an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any website that you have and use the latter for any other website that you wish to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you are able to take care of all plan renewals, upgrades and domain registrations will allow you to order extra dedicated IP addresses in case you need them for any purpose. Just a few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you can use them instantly.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated web hosting plans that we provide include 3 dedicated IP addresses as standard and absolutely free. You're able to employ them for any kind of purpose depending on the content that you've got on your server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your clients may use to redirect domains to their hosting accounts, etc. You can also order extra dedicated IPs through the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones which come with your server. You'll be able to acquire the IPs in groups of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server soon after you send your order, so you can start using them without delays.
