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

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

Each VPS server plan that we provide features one dedicated IP address and if you add a web hosting CP to it, we will supply you with a second one at no additional cost, allowing you to use it the way you see fit. If you want to use more IPs, you will be able to order them with just a couple of clicks at any time, since you'll find such an option both on our order page and within your billing CP. In the first case, the dedicated addresses shall be available the moment the virtual server is ready, while in the second - a few moments after you order them. You'll be able to renew the IPs together with your VPS plan and use them for as long as you need. They can be useful not only for your own sites, but also for the sites of any clients that you might have if you're using the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business. There's no restriction on how frequently you can order additional IPs or on how many of them you could use with your hosting server at any time.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated web hosting plans that we offer feature 3 IP addresses by default and you'll be able to use them in any way you see fit. In case you need additional IPs for any reason, you could add them to your hosting server with a couple of mouse clicks without limits as to their number or the period for which you shall be able to employ them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in the event that you require the IPs right away, you can add them to the package deal during the signup procedure, while in case it turns out that you need more IPs at some point afterwards, you could order them just as simply from your billing area and we'll assign them to your dedicated server a few minutes later. The dedicated IPs may be renewed together with the web server plan on a monthly basis and you'll be able to determine if you will renew all of them or simply a few - in case you no longer require that many. You can use the IPs both for your own Internet sites and for client hosting accounts - provided you're using the dedicated server as a web hosting reseller platform.
