All devices on the Web are recognized by a specific number called an IP address, for instance 123.123.123.123. If you have a site, the domain name that you type in order to open it is to save you time, but the server where your site files are still has an IP address. Considering that there are a lot more websites and devices than there are IP addresses, all of the shared web hosting servers have a number of websites under an identical IP, whereas when you use a dedicated server you'll be given 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 get better search engine positions because a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading website. Last but not least, you need such an IP when you intend to acquire an SSL certificate for your website and shield the information that your visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
We supply dedicated IPs with all of our Linux shared packages irrespective of the data center location and you will be able to acquire one or several IPs from your Hepsia Control Panel. A new section will appear as part of your account and you can request, view or delete your IPs with a couple of clicks. You will be able to select how many domains or subdomains will use a particular IP since you can assign one with a few clicks to every hostname. For instance, www.domain.com can be the main site, which uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be a subdomain where you offer services or goods on the net and it can have a dedicated IP address combined with an SSL certificate. You can change the IP which a domain uses via the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You may also set some of your websites to use one and the same dedicated IP as long as there is no SSL set up for it.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP takes no more than a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you have not had a website hosting account previously, you won't encounter any kind of difficulties to order and assign a dedicated IP address. Any domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP in place of the server's shared one and you are able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you will also see all IPs that your sites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is accessible or you are already using it. In case that you wish to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you will be able to select everything to be installed automatically. When you use this particular 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 authorizing your SSL order through email.

Also, you can add more dedicated IP addresses to your VPS account any time you need them. This can be done via the billing Control Panel that you'll obtain to take care of renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it takes no more than a couple of clicks.
