All devices on the World Wide Web are recognized by a specific number called an IP address, for instance If you have a website, 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. Due to the fact that there're a lot more websites and devices than there're IPs, all the shared hosting servers have a number of websites under the very same IP, whereas with 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. An advantage would be that you will get superior search engine positions since a dedicated IP generally means a quicker loading website. What's more, you need such an IP if you plan to obtain an SSL certificate for your site and protect the data that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP address takes just a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you have not had a web hosting account previously, you will not encounter any difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP. Each domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP address rather than the server's shared one and you can make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you will also see all IPs that your sites can use and if a dedicated IP is accessible or you're already using it. If you'd like to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you are able to select everything to be installed automatically. Using this particular feature, our system will change the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll set up the certificate in a couple of minutes, so you will not have to do anything on your end except for authorizing the SSL request through e-mail.
