All devices on the Internet are identified by a special number called an IP address, such as In case 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're far more sites and devices than there are IPs, all of the shared hosting servers have a number of sites under the very same IP, while using a dedicated server you'll have a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you're able to acquire a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you will enjoy better search engine positions as a dedicated IP often means a quicker loading website. What is more, you need such an IP when you want to acquire an SSL certificate for your site and protect the info that visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
Using a shared hosting account on our cloud platform, you'll be able to buy a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a few clicks regardless of where your account is - in the United States, the United Kingdom or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains section of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they're allotted to. When you would like to use an SSL certificate so as to protect the info of your website visitors and you obtain it from our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you may still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a discussion board where users can share their opinion about your services, for example.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you'll have the option to get as many dedicated IPs as you'd like depending on your business needs.

Hepsia will enable you to view all of the IPs which you will be able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken.

In case you would like to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you're able to use the IPs that we provide absolutely free. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any website name that you have registered with us or elsewhere and then use them to point other domains to the dedicated server.
