All devices on the World Wide Web are identified by a special number called an IP address, for instance 123.123.123.123. When you have a site, the domain name that you type to access it is to save you time, but the server where the site files are still has an IP address. As there are a lot more websites and devices than there're IP addresses, all shared web hosting servers have a number of websites under the same IP, while when you use a dedicated server you'll have a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you can get a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you may get far better search engine rankings because a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading website. Furthermore, you need such an IP when you plan to acquire an SSL certificate for your site and protect the info that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting

We supply dedicated IPs with all of our Linux shared web hosting packages irrespective of the data center location and you'll be able to acquire one or several IPs via your Hepsia Control Panel. An additional section will appear inside your account and you're able to request, view or delete your IPs with just a couple of clicks. You can choose how many domains or subdomains will use a given IP since you can assign one with a couple of clicks to any hostname. For instance, www.domain.com can be your main website, that uses a server's shared IP, whereas shop.domain.com can be the subdomain where you offer services or goods on the web and it could have a dedicated IP address along with an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP which a site uses via the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You can also set a couple of of your sites to use the same dedicated IP provided that there is no SSL activated for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, that is supplied with our semi-dedicated server plans, will make it very easy to obtain a dedicated IP and use it for each website that you have in the account no matter if it is under a domain or a subdomain. With just a few clicks you will be able to order the IP and when our system assigns it, you can set it for one or multiple websites via the Hosted Domains section of the Control Panel. In the same place you can also 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 site they're assigned to? In case the IP you'll need is for an SSL certificate, you will be able to take advantage of our useful SSL wizard that will make the whole process very simple as it'll request and assign an IP to the preferred domain/subdomain and then install the SSL without any action on your side apart from placing the order.
