An IP address is a unique number that identifies a website or a server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed just by your Internet sites and will not be shared with other people as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. Provided you have your own web server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for various uses. Provided you have an electronic store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, to ensure that the payment information which your clients submit will be encrypted and safe. The same is valid if you have a login form of some sort and you wish the usernames and the passwords that visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which should be different from the one that you already have on the web server. You could also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better functionality for a given site, which will influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

Each VPS server plan which we offer features 1 dedicated IP address and if you add a web hosting Control Panel to it, we will give you a second one at no additional cost, so that you can use it the way you see fit. If you would like to use more IPs, you shall be able to order them with only a couple of clicks at any time, since you'll discover this sort of an option both on our order page and in your billing CP. In the first case, the dedicated addresses will be available as soon as the virtual server is ready, while in the second - a few moments after you buy them. You'll be able to renew the IPs together with your VPS plan and use them for as long as you'd like. They can prove useful not simply for your own sites, but also for the Internet sites of any clients that you might have in the event that you are using the virtual server to run a web hosting reseller business. There's no limitation on how many times you can order additional IPs or on the amount of of them you'll be able to use with your web server at any given time.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

In case you get one of our dedicated server packages, you will get 3 IP addresses at no additional charge and you could use them for any purpose. If you require even more IPs, you can request them whenever you want via your billing area and we will assign them to the web server a few minutes later. You can even get additional IPs during the signup process and they shall be available on your server the instant it's all set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you could choose how many addresses you will order and how long you shall use them, as you will be able to choose the number of IPs that you'll renew each month with your web server plan. Any IP address that's assigned to your dedicated server could be used not just for your personal content, but also for any website or app which your clients may have - if you have purchased the machine with the goal to resell the disk space to third parties.
