All devices on the World Wide Web are identified by a specific number called an IP address, such as When you have a site, the domain name that you type in order to access it is for your convenience, yet the server where the site files are still has an IP. Since there are far more sites and devices than there are IPs, all shared web hosting servers have a number of sites under the same IP, while when you use a dedicated server you'll have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you can get a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you may have superior search engine rankings because a dedicated IP often means a faster loading site. Last but not least, you need such an IP in case you intend to get an SSL certificate for your website and secure the info that visitors submit on it.

If you get a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you will get the opportunity to get as many dedicated IP addresses as you'd like depending on the needs you have.

The entire process is very simple and your site will start opening from the new IP address in minutes. Hepsia will enable you to view all IP addresses which you can use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. In case you want to use an SSL certificate on any of your websites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you may take advantage of our SSL order wizard, that can assign a new IP and set up the certificate the moment you submit your order, so you do not need to modify anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account by yourself.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All of the dedicated web hosting plans that we provide include 3 dedicated IP addresses as standard and cost-free. You'll be able to employ them for any kind of purpose based on the content that you have on your server - a video game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your clients can use to point domain names to their hosting accounts, and many other things. You'll also be able to purchase more dedicated IPs via the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones that come with your plan. You are able to acquire the IPs in sets of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server soon after you send your order, so that you can use them without any delays.
