An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes an Internet site or a server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed just by your sites and won't be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. Provided you have your own web server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for various uses. If you have an electronic store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, to ensure that the payment information your clients submit will be encrypted and secure. The same is valid if you have a login form of some type and you would like the usernames and the passwords which 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 could also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better functionality for a certain website, which will influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS

If you buy one of our Linux VPS, we shall give you one dedicated IP address by default and a second one absolutely free - if you add any one of the hosting Control Panels which we offer to your order. Some other IPs could be purchased effortlessly in the event that you require them. The option is offered on the order page, so in the event that you need more IPs from the beginning, we'll able to assign them to your VPS the minute it is put in place and you can use them the instant you start using the server. If you need them for any reason later, you can order them through the billing area and they shall be available in a couple of minutes. This way, you shall be able to assign dedicated IP addresses not only to your own Internet sites, but also to clients' websites if you've started a reseller business. You'll be able to order IPs as often as needed and renew them along with your virtual web server plan. If, sooner or later, you need less IPs, you'll have the opportunity to renew only those which you require, while the extra ones shall be removed from your server.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting

When you get one of our dedicated server packages, you'll receive three IP addresses at no additional charge and you'll be able to use them for any purpose. If you require even more IPs, you could request them whenever you want from your billing area and we shall assign them to the web server a few minutes later. You can also get more IPs during the signup procedure and they'll be available on your hosting server the instant it is ready and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of 3 and you may pick how many addresses you'll order and how long you shall use them, since you can select the number of IPs which you'll renew each month with your server plan. Any IP address that is assigned to your dedicated server may be used not only for your personal content, but also for any website or application that your customers may have - if you have obtained the web server with the intention to resell the disk space to third parties.
