An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes an Internet site or a web server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used just by your Internet sites and will not be shared with other people as it happens with shared hosting accounts. Provided you have your own web server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for a variety of uses. If you have an Internet store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment information which your customers submit will be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some sort and you want the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which has to be different from the one which 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 overall performance for a certain Internet site, which may affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS

Our Linux VPS come with one dedicated IP address by default. Another one is available as well - when they are ordered with a hosting CP. If you require more IPs, however, you shall be able to incorporate them effortlessly, whatever the package which you've chosen. You are able to do this during the signup process in case you need them from the very beginning or through your billing account - in the event that you need them later on. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your server right after that and you may start using them. You'll be able to renew the IPs along with the plan for as long as you intend to use them. This upgrade is very useful not just for your personal content, but also in case you would like to use the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business, because you will be able to offer a dedicated IP to every client who wants to use one. There is no restriction on the amount of addresses you may order or on how often you may do that.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting

When you obtain one of our dedicated server plans, you'll receive 3 IP addresses at no additional charge and you can use them for any purpose. If you require additional IPs, you'll be able to request them anytime via your billing area and we'll assign them to the hosting server a few minutes later. You can also get additional IPs during the signup procedure and they will be available on your web 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'll be able to pick how many addresses you will order and how long you shall use them, as you will be able to select the number of IPs which you will renew each month with your server plan. Any IP address that is assigned to your dedicated server may be used not just for your personal content, but also for any Internet site or app your customers may have - if you have obtained the machine with the intention to resell the disk space to third parties.
