An IP address is a unique number that separates a website or a web server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be used solely by your websites and shall not be shared with other people as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. If you have your own web server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for a variety of uses. In case you have an online store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment information your clients submit shall be encrypted and secure. 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 enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which has to be different from the one which you already have on the server. You may also need a separate IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better performance for a certain Internet site, which shall influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS

Our Linux VPS services come with one dedicated IP address by default. An additional one is available too - if they are ordered with a web hosting CP. If you require more IPs, however, you will be able to incorporate them effortlessly, whatever the plan which you've picked. You can do this during the signup process in case you need them from the very beginning or through your billing account - if you need them afterwards. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your server shortly after that and you can start using them. You could renew the IPs along with the plan for as long as you want to use them. This upgrade is incredibly useful not only for your personal content, but also in case you want to use the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business, since you will be able to provide a dedicated IP to any customer who would want to use one. There isn't a restriction on the number of addresses you may order or on how many times you may do that.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting

If you get one of our dedicated server solutions, you'll receive three IP addresses at no additional charge and you could use them for any purpose. If you require more IPs, you'll be able to request them anytime from your billing area and we shall assign them to the web server a couple of minutes later. You may also get more IPs during the signup procedure and they will be available on your server as soon as it is ready and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you can choose how many addresses you will order and how long you'll use them, as you could choose the number of IPs that you'll renew on a monthly basis with your hosting server plan. Any IP address that is assigned to your dedicated server could be used not just for your personal content, but also for any Internet site or app your customers may have - if you have purchased the web server with the intent to resell the disk space to third parties.
