If you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP - an exclusive number that is used to detect any kind of device connected to the Internet. The domain name that you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Due to the fact that there are far more sites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use a single IP for a variety of websites even if they are owned by different users. Even though this doesn't affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly improve the loading speed of a certain website, granting it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you want to secure the payment or login info that your website visitors type in, you will need an IP in addition to the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting
When you use a shared website hosting account on our cloud platform, you're able to buy a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a couple of clicks no matter where your account is - in the USA, Britain or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains section of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're allotted to. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate to secure the info of your visitors and you acquire it from us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not be required to anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you may still have a website in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a discussion forum where users can share opinions about your services, for instance.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP takes only a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even when you have not had a web hosting account previously, you will not experience any difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP. Each domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP other than the server's shared one and you're able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also view all IPs that your websites can use and if a dedicated IP is available or you are already using it. In case that you need an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you are able to select everything to be installed automatically. When you use this feature, our system will modify the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will install the certificate in a couple of minutes, so you shall not have to do anything on your end other than approving the SSL order via email.

In case you need more IPs, you'll be able to order them as an additional upgrade through your billing Control Panel and they'll be assigned to your server very quickly. You can control your IPs without any difficulty from your hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel which you will get to take care of the virtual machine.
