When you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP address - a special number which is used to detect any device connected to the Internet. The website name which you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. As there are many more sites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use the very same IP for multiple sites even in case they belong to several users. While this does not affect the site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a particular site, granting it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so when you plan to secure the payment or login data that your website visitors enter, you will need an IP along with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
When you use a shared hosting account on our cloud platform, you will be able to obtain a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a few clicks regardless of where your account is - in the USA, Britain or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains area of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're assigned to. If you wish to use an SSL certificate so as to secure the information of your site visitors and you obtain it from our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you won't be required to anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you can 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 thoughts and opinions about your services, for instance.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, will make it really easy to purchase a dedicated IP address and use it for any kind of site that you have in the account no matter if it is under a domain or a subdomain. With only a few clicks you will be able to order the IP and as soon as our system assigns it, you can set it for one or multiple websites via the Hosted Domains area of the Control Panel. In the same place you will also be able to find what IP is used by each and every domain or subdomain, a list of the dedicated IP addresses as well as if and what website they are assigned to? If the IP you will need is for an SSL certificate, you will be able to take advantage of our helpful SSL wizard that will make the overall process very simple due to the fact that it will request and assign an IP to the desired domain/subdomain and after that set up the SSL without the need of any action on your side apart from placing your order.

You'll also be able to acquire extra dedicated IP addresses through the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones which come with the plan. You will be able to buy the IPs in groups of three and they shall be added to your dedicated server right after you submit your order, so that you can use them without delays.
