An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes a website or a hosting server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used solely by your Internet sites and will not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. In case you have your own hosting server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for various purposes. Provided you have an online store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, in order to ensure that the payment info your clients submit shall be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some kind and you wish the usernames and the passwords that visitors input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which has to be different from the one which you already have on the machine. You may also need a separate IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better functionality for a certain site, which may affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS

Each VPS service that we provide features 1 dedicated IP address and if you add a hosting Control Panel to it, we will give you a second one at no additional cost, allowing you to use it the way you see fit. If you would like to use more IPs, you'll be able to order them with just a couple of mouse clicks anytime, since you will find this kind of an option both on our order page and inside your billing Control Panel. In the first case, the dedicated addresses shall be available the moment the virtual server is prepared, while in the second - a couple of minutes after you buy them. You'll be able to renew the IPs together with your VPS plan and use them for so long as you desire. They can be useful not only for your own Internet sites, but also for the Internet sites of any clients which you may have in case you're using the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business. There's no limit on how frequently you could order additional IPs or on the amount of of them you could use with your web server at any time.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting

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