All devices on the Web are recognized by a special number called an IP address, such as When you have a site, the domain name that you enter in order to open it is for your convenience, however the server where the site files are still has an IP address. Considering that there are many more sites and devices than there are IP addresses, all of the shared web hosting servers have a number of websites under the same IP, whereas using a dedicated server you'll have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you're able to obtain a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you may get improved search engine positions since a dedicated IP often means a faster loading site. Furthermore, you need such an IP when you plan to purchase an SSL certificate for your site and protect the info that visitors submit on it.

You can add / remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any time. If any of the IPs that you buy will be used for an SSL certificate, you may activate the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard and then our system will request & assign the IP before it installs the certificate automatically. Our flexible platform will allow you to use a dedicated IP address for various sites as well if it is not in use by an SSL.

The Hosted Domains section of Hepsia will allow you to find the available IPs and to check those that are in use in no time. If you would like to get a new IP for an SSL certificate, you are able to use the auto-configuration function, that is available in our SSL order wizard. When you activate this feature, you won't need to do anything after you submit your order because our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain involved, and then set up the SSL certificate - all of this automatically and without any action on your end. That way, you will be able to protect the data that visitors submit on your site even if you don't have any previous experience with this kind of matters.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
As you'll be able to run more or less anything on a dedicated server, all of our plans feature three dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you plan to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you're able to use the IPs that we provide you with without charge. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you have registered through us or elsewhere then employ them to point other domains to the dedicated server. If you manage a hosting company, for example, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as an independent supplier. If you need more IP addresses than the three the packages feature, you are able to get extra ones in increments of 3 either throughout the registration process or from your billing Control Panel any time.
