An IP address is a unique number which separates 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 websites and shall not be shared with others as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. Provided you have your own server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for many different purposes. In case you have a web-based store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment info your customers submit will be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some kind and you would like the usernames and the passwords that visitors input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which has to be different from the one that you already have on the hosting server. You may also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better performance for a given Internet site, which may affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting

If you decide to order one of our Linux VPS web hosting services, we shall give you one dedicated IP address by default and a second one at no extra cost - in the event that you add any one of the hosting Control Panels that we offer to your order. More IPs can be purchased with ease if you need them. The option is offered on the order page, so in case you need more IPs right away, we can assign them to your VPS the moment it's set up and you can use them the moment you begin using the hosting server. If you require them for any reason later, you can order them through the billing area and they'll be available within a couple of minutes. Thus, you'll be able to assign dedicated IP addresses not just to your own websites, but also to customers' websites if you've launched a reseller business. You can order IPs as frequently as needed and renew them along with your virtual hosting server plan. If, sooner or later, you require less IPs, you will have the opportunity to renew just those that you require, while the extra ones will be removed from your web server.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you get one of our dedicated server solutions, you will get three IP addresses at no additional charge and you may use them for any purpose. If you need additional IPs, you can request them at any time via your billing area and we will assign them to the server a few moments later. You can also get more IPs during the signup procedure and they shall be available on your hosting server the instant it is all set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of 3 and you can decide how many addresses you will order and how long you'll use them, as you could pick the number of IPs that you'll renew on a monthly basis with your server plan. Any IP address which is assigned to your dedicated server may be used not just for your personal content, but also for any site or application that your clients may have - if you have purchased the machine with the intent to resell the disk space to third parties.
