If you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - an exclusive number that is used to distinguish every device connected to the Internet. The domain name which you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. As there are a lot more sites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use a single IP for a variety of sites even if they belong to different users. Even though this doesn't affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a certain website, providing it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so if you wish to secure the payment or login details that your site visitors type in, you need an IP in addition to the SSL.

Our versatile platform will allow you to use a dedicated IP address for multiple sites as well if it is not in use by an SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP takes just a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you haven't had a hosting account previously, you will not have any difficulties to order and assign a dedicated IP address. Each domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP address instead of the server's shared one and you are able to make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you can also view all IPs that your websites can use and if a dedicated IP is available or you're already using it. In case that you wish to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you can select everything to be installed automatically. Using this feature, our system will modify the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll install your certificate in a couple of minutes, so you shall not need to do anything on your end apart from approving your SSL request via email.
