An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes an Internet site or a hosting server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed solely by your Internet sites and shall not be shared with others as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. Provided you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for a variety of purposes. If you have an electronic store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make certain that the payment info which your clients submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid if you have a login form of some sort and you wish the usernames and the passwords that visitors input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which has to be different from the one that you already have on the server. You may also need an independent IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better performance for a certain Internet site, which shall affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Hosting

Every VPS hosting package that we offer includes one dedicated IP address and if you add a hosting CP to it, we shall give you a second one at no additional cost, so that you can use it the way you see fit. If you need to use more IPs, you will be able to order them with no more than two clicks anytime, since you will discover this kind of an option both on our order page and within your billing Control Panel. In the first case, the dedicated addresses will be available as soon as the virtual server is set, while in the second - a few minutes after you purchase them. You could renew the IPs along with your VPS plan and use them for as long as you would like. They can be useful not only for your own sites, but also for the websites of any clients that you could have in the event that you're using the virtual server to run a web hosting reseller business. There isn't a limitation on how many times you could order additional IPs or on how many of them you could use with your machine at any moment.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting

In case you get one of our dedicated server plans, you'll receive 3 IP addresses at no additional charge and you could use them for any purpose. If you need additional IPs, you can request them anytime from your billing area and we shall assign them to the server a few minutes later. You can even get more IPs during the signup procedure and they shall be available on your web server the minute it is all set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you'll be able to pick how many addresses you will order and how long you shall use them, as you could choose the number of IPs that you will renew each month with your server plan. Any IP address which is assigned to your dedicated server can be used not just for your personal content, but for any website or application which your customers may have - if you have bought the server with the intent to resell the disk space to third parties.
