An IP address is a unique number which separates an Internet site or a server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed solely by your sites and won't be shared with others as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. In case you have your own web server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for different purposes. Provided you have a web-based store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment info which your clients submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some type and you want the usernames and the passwords that visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which has to be different from the one that you already have on the machine. You could also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better performance for a particular Internet site, which may affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

Our Linux VPS plans include one dedicated IP address by default. An additional one is available too - if they are ordered with a hosting CP. If you require more IPs, however, you'll be able to add them effortlessly, whatever the plan which you've chosen. You can do this during the signup procedure in case you need them from the very beginning or using your billing account - in case you need them later. The dedicated IPs will be assigned to your hosting server soon after that and you may begin using them. You'll be able to renew the IPs together with the plan for so long as you plan to use them. This upgrade is extremely useful not only for your personal content, but also if you would like to use the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business, considering that you will be able to supply a dedicated IP to every customer who would like to use one. There isn't any restriction on the amount of addresses you could order or on how frequently you may do that.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

In case you get one of our dedicated server packages, you will get three IP addresses at no additional charge and you can use them for any purpose. If you require even more IPs, you could request them at any time through your billing area and we shall assign them to the hosting server a couple of minutes later. You can also get more IPs during the signup procedure and they shall be available on your machine the minute it is set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you could decide how many addresses you will order and how long you will use them, as you could choose the number of IPs that you'll renew each 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 website or app your customers may have - if you have acquired the machine with the aim to resell the disk space to third parties.
