All devices on the World Wide Web are recognized by a specific number called an IP address, such as When you have a website, the domain name that you enter to be able to open it is for your convenience, but the server where your site files are still has an IP. Because there're far more websites and devices than there are IP addresses, all shared website hosting servers have a number of websites under the very same IP, whereas using a dedicated server you'll get a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you can acquire a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you may get superior search engine positions because a dedicated IP usually means a faster loading site. What's more, you need such an IP when you would like to get an SSL certificate for your website and shield the data that your visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
When you use a shared hosting account on our cloud platform, you will be able to get a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a couple of clicks wherever your account is - in the US, the United Kingdom or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains part of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're assigned to. If you would like to use an SSL certificate so as to protect the information of your visitors and you get it through our company, our system will assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you won't be required to anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you can still have a website in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a community forum where users can share their opinion about your services, for instance.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to add one or several dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated hosting package and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will help you see the available IP addresses and to check the ones which are in use in no time. Provided you would like to acquire a new IP for an SSL certificate, you will be able to use the auto-configuration function, which is available in our SSL order wizard. When you activate this option, you will not have to do anything after you send in your order because our system will request a dedicated IP address, assign it to the domain or subdomain involved, and then install the SSL certificate - all of this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. In this way, you're able to shield the data that visitors submit on your site even if you don't have any previous experience with this kind of matters.
