An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes a site or a hosting server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed just by your Internet sites and shall not be shared with others as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. If you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for different uses. Provided you have a web-based store, for example, you will need an SSL certificate for it, so as to ensure that the payment information 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 secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which needs to be different from the one that you already have on the web server. You may also need an individual IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better efficiency for a particular Internet site, which may influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

Our Linux VPS servers provide one dedicated IP address by default. A second one is available too - when they are ordered with a hosting Control Panel. In case you require more IPs, however, you'll be able to add them with ease, no matter the package that you've chosen. You could do this during the signup procedure in case you need them from the very beginning or using your billing account - if you need them later on. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your web server right after that and you could begin using them. You can renew the IPs along with the plan for as long as you want to use them. This upgrade is quite useful not only for your personal content, but also if you want to use the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business, because you shall be able to provide a dedicated IP to any client who would want to use one. There isn't a restriction on the number of addresses you can order or on how many times you may do that.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated web hosting plans we offer come with three IP addresses by default and you can use them in whatever way you see fit. In the event that you need additional IPs for any reason, you'll be able to add them to your server with just a few mouse clicks without limitations as to their number or to the duration for which you'll be able to employ them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in the event that you require the IPs right from the start, you may add them to the package during the signup process, while in the event that it turns out that you require more IPs at some point later, you may order them just as quickly from your billing area and we shall assign them to your dedicated server several minutes later. The dedicated IPs could be renewed along with the hosting server plan on a monthly basis and you could choose if you will renew all of them or simply a few - in case you no longer need that many. You may use the IPs both for your own sites and for customer hosting accounts - if you're using the dedicated server as a web hosting reseller platform.
