An IP address is a unique number which identifies a site or a server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used just by your websites and will not be shared with other people as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. If you have your own hosting server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for different purposes. In case you have an online store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment information which your customers submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid if you have a login form of some type and you want the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which ought to be different from the one which you already have on the server. You could also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better overall performance for a certain Internet site, which shall affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

Each VPS server plan that we offer comes with one dedicated IP address and if you add a web hosting Control Panel to it, we will supply you with a second one at no additional cost, so that you can use it the way you see fit. If you wish to use more IPs, you will be able to order them with just 2 mouse clicks anytime, since you will discover such an option both on our order page and in your billing Control Panel. In the first case, the dedicated addresses shall be available the moment the virtual server is set, while in the second - a few minutes after you buy them. You'll be able to renew the IPs along with your VPS plan and use them for as long as you wish. They can come in handy not just for your own websites, but also for the websites of any clients that you might have in case you're using the virtual server to run a web hosting reseller business. There's no limitation on how many times you'll be able to order additional IPs or on how many of them you can use with your machine at any time.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

In case you obtain one of our dedicated server solutions, you'll receive three IP addresses at no additional charge and you could use them for any purpose. If you need even more IPs, you could request them anytime from your billing area and we shall assign them to the hosting server a few minutes later. You may even get more IPs during the signup process and they shall be available on your web server the instant it is 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'll use them, since you will be able to choose the number of IPs that you'll renew every month with your web 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 site or application which your customers may have - if you have obtained the hosting server with the intent to resell the disk space to third parties.
