An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes a website or a hosting server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed only by your sites and won't be shared with other people as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. In case you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for many different purposes. In case you have an online store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make sure that the payment information your customers submit shall be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some kind and you want the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which should be different from the one that you already have on the server. You might also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better overall performance for a certain site, which may affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS

If you buy one of our Linux VPS packages, we will supply you with one dedicated IP address by default and a second one 100 % free - if you add any of the hosting Control Panels which we offer to your order. More IPs may be purchased with ease if you require them. The option is offered on the order page, so in the event that you need more IPs from the beginning, we can assign them to your VPS whenever it's set up and you can use them the moment you start using the server. If you need them for any reason later, you can order them through the billing area and they will be available in a couple of minutes. In this way, you shall be able to assign dedicated IP addresses not only to your own Internet sites, but also to customers' websites in case you've started out a reseller business. You can order IPs as often as needed and renew them together with your virtual server plan. If, at some point, you require less IPs, you'll have the chance to renew only those that you require, while the extra ones will be removed from your web server.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting

All dedicated hosting we offer feature three IP addresses by default and you may use them in whatever way you see fit. In the event that you require even more IPs for any reason, you can add them to your server with a few clicks with no restrictions as to their number or to the duration for which you'll be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in the event that you require the IPs right from the start, you can add them to the package during the signup process, while in the event that it turns out that you need more IPs at some point later on, you may order them just as effortlessly from your billing area and we shall assign them to your dedicated server several minutes later. The dedicated IPs may be renewed along with the hosting server plan on a monthly basis and you can determine if you shall renew all of them or only a few - in the event that you no longer need that many. You can use the IPs both for your own Internet sites and for client hosting accounts - when you're using the dedicated server as an Internet hosting reseller platform.
