An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes a website or a hosting server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed only by your websites and won't be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. If you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for a variety of uses. In case you have an online store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, in order to ensure that the payment information that your customers submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some type and you wish the usernames and the passwords which visitors input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which should be different from the one that you already have on the server. You may also need an individual IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better efficiency for a particular website, which will influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting

If you choose to order one of our VPS web hosting services, we shall supply you with one dedicated IP address by default and a second one absolutely free - if you add any one of the hosting Control Panels we offer to your order. Additional IPs may be purchased easily if you require them. The option is offered on the order page, so if you require more IPs right away, we can assign them to your VPS the instant it is set up and you can use them as soon as you start using the web server. If you need them for any reason later, you can order them through the billing area and they shall be available in a matter of minutes. Thus, you'll be able to assign dedicated IP addresses not just to your own sites, but also to customers' websites if you have launched a reseller enterprise. You can order IPs as often as required and renew them along with your virtual server plan. If, at some point, you require less IPs, you will have the opportunity to renew just those that you need, while the extra ones will be taken off your machine.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you acquire one of our dedicated server packages, you'll receive 3 IP addresses at no additional charge and you'll be able to use them for any purpose. If you require additional IPs, you may request them at any time via your billing area and we will assign them to the hosting server a few minutes later. You can even get additional IPs during the signup procedure and they will be available on your server the minute it is ready and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you may decide how many addresses you'll order and how long you shall use them, since you can choose the number of IPs which you'll renew every month with your hosting server plan. Any IP address which is assigned to your dedicated server may be used not just for your personal content, but for any website or app that your clients may have - if you have bought the web server with the aim to resell the disk space to third parties.
