An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes a website or a hosting server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed exclusively by your Internet sites and shall not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. Provided you have your own hosting server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for different purposes. If you have an electronic store, for example, you will need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make certain that the payment information that your clients submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some sort and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which needs to 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 want a slightly better functionality for a certain site, which may affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

Every single VPS server plan that we provide features 1 dedicated IP address and if you add a hosting Control Panel to it, we will supply you with a second one at no additional cost, so that you can use it as you see fit. If you would like to use more IPs, you will be able to order them with no more than a couple of clicks anytime, as you will find this kind of an option both on our order page and inside your billing CP. In the first case, the dedicated addresses shall be available the minute the virtual server is prepared, while in the second - a few minutes after you purchase them. You'll be able to renew the IPs along with your VPS plan and use them for so long as you need. They can come in handy not only for your own sites, but also for the Internet sites of any clients that you may have in the event that you are using the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business. There is no limitation on how many times you can order additional IPs or on the amount of of them you'll be able to use with your machine at any time.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

In case you acquire one of our dedicated server plans, you'll get three IP addresses at no additional charge and you'll be able to use them for any purpose. If you require more IPs, you'll be able to request them at any time from your billing area and we'll assign them to the web server a few moments later. You can even get more IPs during the signup procedure and they'll be available on your hosting server the moment it is 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'll order and how long you'll use them, as you will be able to choose the number of IPs which you will renew each month with your hosting server plan. Any IP address which is assigned to your dedicated server could be used not just for your personal content, but for any site or app that your clients may have - if you have purchased the server with the purpose to resell the disk space to third parties.
