A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the net which is allotted to a device or a site. Shared hosting servers usually have a number of websites under the same IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs that are not shared with anyone else. Even if you use a typical shared account, however, it is possible to get a dedicated IP address that will be in use just by your websites - one or a few. As this can add up to the speed of thesite, it is much more likely that the website will get improved search engine result positions. Of course, this isn't the only factor, but it is likely to help you get more visitors and prospective clients. The dedicated IP is also necessary if you wish to encrypt the information exchanged between a site and its visitors by using an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
If you use some of our shared hosting plans, you will be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account with ease and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have picked for the account throughout the sign-up process, so it's possible to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can edit each and every domain or subdomain independently through the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL through our company, you will be able to use our auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you'd like to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP address takes just a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even when you haven't had a web hosting account before, you will not have any kind of difficulties to order and assign a dedicated IP. Any domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP other than the server's shared one and you will be able to make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also see all IPs that your sites can use and if a dedicated IP is free or you are already using it. If you need an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you're able to select everything to be installed automatically. With this feature, our system will change the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will install the certificate in a matter of minutes, so you shall not need to do anything on your end apart from approving the SSL order through email.

You're able to use them the way you like - to access site content, to manage a web application, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any website that you have and use the latter for any other domain that you want to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you'll be able to control all the plan renewals, upgrades and domain registrations will enable you to order additional dedicated IP addresses in case you need them for any purpose. A few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you can use them immediately.

You can also purchase more dedicated IPs via the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones that come with the plan. You can obtain the IPs in sets of three and they will be added to your dedicated server right after you send your order, so that you can use them with no delays.
