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 shall be employed just by your Internet sites and will not be shared with others as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. Provided you have your own web server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for many different uses. In case you have a web-based store, for example, you will need an SSL certificate for it, so as to ensure that the payment information your customers submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some type and you wish the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which should be different from the one that you already have on the hosting server. You may also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better efficiency for a given Internet site, which may influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

Our VPS servers come with one dedicated IP address by default. Another one is available also - in case they are ordered with a hosting Control Panel. If you require more IPs, however, you'll be able to add them with ease, no matter the plan which you have chosen. You could do this during the signup procedure if you need them from the very beginning or via your billing account - if you need them later on. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your hosting server soon after that and you may start using them. You'll be able to renew the IPs along with the plan for so long as you intend to use them. This upgrade is incredibly useful not just for your personal content, but also in case you wish to use the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business, since you'll be able to provide a dedicated IP to every customer who would want to use one. There isn't any restriction on the amount of addresses you could order or on how many times you could do that.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

When you acquire one of our dedicated server packages, you will get three IP addresses at no additional charge and you'll be able to use them for any purpose. If you need even more IPs, you could request them whenever you want through your billing area and we will assign them to the server a couple of minutes later. You may even get more IPs during the signup process and they shall be available on your server the instant it is set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of 3 and you can select how many addresses you'll order and how long you'll use them, as you can select the number of IPs that you'll renew every month with your server plan. Any IP address which is assigned to your dedicated server could be used not only for your personal content, but also for any website or app that your customers may have - if you have obtained the machine with the intention to resell the disk space to third parties.
