An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes a website or a web server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed only by your websites and won't be shared with other people as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. Provided you have your own web server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for many different uses. In case you have an electronic store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, in order to ensure that the payment information your clients submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid if you have a login form of some sort and you want the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which needs to be different from the one that you already have on the hosting server. You could also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better performance for a certain Internet site, which shall influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

Each VPS server service which we offer comes with 1 dedicated IP address and if you add an Internet hosting Control Panel to it, we will give you a second one at no additional cost, so you can use it as you see fit. If you wish to use more IPs, you'll be able to order them with just a couple of mouse clicks anytime, since you will discover this sort of an option both on our order page and in your billing CP. In the first case, the dedicated addresses shall be available the minute the virtual server is ready, while in the second - a couple of minutes after you purchase them. You could renew the IPs together with your VPS plan and use them for so long as you need. They can be useful not only for your own websites, but also for the websites of any customers that you could have in the event that you are using the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business. There isn't any limitation on how frequently you'll be able to order additional IPs or on the number of of them you could use with your web server at any given time.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

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