A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the web that is assigned to a device or a site. Shared website hosting servers usually have plenty of sites under a single IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs which aren't shared with others. Even when you use a regular shared account, however, it is possible to get a dedicated IP address that will be used only by your sites - one or a few. Because this can add up to the speed of thesite, it is more likely that the website will get improved search engine result rankings. Of course, this isn't the sole factor, but it can help you get more website visitors and prospective customers. The dedicated IP is also necessary if you'd like to encrypt the info exchanged between the site and its visitors with an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
When you use a shared hosting account on our cloud platform, you will be able to acquire a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks wherever your account is - in the United States, the United Kingdom or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains section of our 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 are allotted to. When you wish to use an SSL certificate in order to protect the info of your site 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. In the meantime, you may still have a website in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion board where users can share their opinion about your services, for example.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you'll get the option to get as many dedicated IPs as you need depending on the needs you have. It will take a few clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel to acquire your new IP plus several more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is very easy and your website will start loading from the new IP address in no time. Hepsia will enable you to see all IP addresses which you can use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. If you want to use an SSL certificate on some of your websites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you may take advantage of our SSL order wizard, that will assign a new IP and install the certificate as soon as you send your order, so you won't need to customize anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account by yourself.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you obtain a dedicated server, you probably would like to run a web application or host a lot of sites, so we provide three dedicated IPs completely free with each package and you can use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name which you have registered here or via another company. The last option is very useful in case you use the dedicated server to host customers' Internet sites since it'll give you credibility and anonymity as a website hosting supplier. The server billing Control Panel will enable you to add extra IPs as well - the upgrade is in increments of three and takes just a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, which means that you're able to go ahead and start using the new dedicated IP addresses several minutes after you submit your order.
