All devices on the Internet are identified by a unique number called an IP address, such as If you have a site, the domain that you type to be able to open it is to save you time, but the server where your website files are still has an IP. Considering that there are a lot more sites and devices than there are IPs, all shared web hosting servers have a number of websites under an identical IP, whereas using a dedicated server you'll be given 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. One benefit would be that you may get superior search engine rankings as a dedicated IP usually means a faster loading site. What's more, you need such an IP in case you plan to buy an SSL certificate for your website and secure the data that visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
In case you host your sites on our up-to-date cloud platform and you have a shared hosting package, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any moment and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This option is available in all of the data centers where we provide services - Chicago (US), London (UK) and Sydney (AU), so whatever your choice during the registration process, you can obtain a dedicated IP address for your websites. You'll be able to add or remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any time. If any of the IPs that you obtain will be used for an SSL certificate, you could enable the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard and then our system will request & assign the IP before it sets up the certificate automatically. Our versatile platform will enable you to use a dedicated IP address for various sites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia Control Panel, that is provided with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, will make it very simple to purchase a dedicated IP and use it for any website that you have in your account irrespective of whether it's under a domain or a subdomain. With only a few clicks you're able to order the IP and when our system assigns it, you'll be able to set it for one or several websites through the Hosted Domains area of the Control Panel. In the same location you'll also be able to find what IP is used by each and every domain or subdomain, a long list of the dedicated IP addresses as well as if and what website they're assigned to? If the IP you need is for an SSL certificate, you can take full advantage of our helpful SSL wizard that will make the overall process really easy due to the fact that it will request and assign an IP to the preferred domain/subdomain and after that install the SSL without the need of any action on your side aside from placing the order.

The billing Control Panel where you're able to control all of the plan renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations will enable you to order extra dedicated IP addresses if you need them for any purpose. A few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you will be able to use them instantly.
