When you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a unique number that's used to identify a device connected to the Internet. The domain name that you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Since there're many more websites than IPs, shared hosting servers use the same IP for a number of websites even if they are owned by different users. While this doesn't affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a given site, giving it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so when you want to secure the payment or login details that your website visitors type in, you will need an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting

With a cloud website hosting account on our cloud platform, you're able to buy a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks no matter where your account is - in the USA, Great Britain or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains part of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they are allotted to. If you wish to use an SSL certificate in order to secure the info of your website visitors and you obtain it from us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you won't need to do anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you may still have a website in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP - a message board where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for instance.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you obtain a semi-dedicated server account from us, you'll have the opportunity to acquire as many dedicated IP addresses as you like depending on your needs. It takes just a few clicks inside the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to obtain a new IP and a couple of more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is really easy and your website will start opening from your new IP address very quickly. Hepsia will allow you to view all IPs that you will be able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate on some of your websites 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 the moment you upload your order, so you won't need to change anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account by yourself.

If you need more IP addresses, you will be able to order them as an additional upgrade from your billing Control Panel and they'll be assigned to your server within a matter of minutes.
