An IP address is a unique number which identifies a site or a web server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it will be used just by your websites and won't be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. In case you have your own web server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for different uses. If you have a web-based store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, to ensure that the payment information which your clients submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you wish the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which should be different from the one that you already have on the hosting server. You could also need an independent IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better performance for a given website, which may affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Hosting

Every VPS hosting service which we supply comes with 1 dedicated IP address and if you add an Internet hosting CP to it, we'll give you a second one at no additional cost, so that you can use it the way you see fit. If you wish to use more IPs, you will be able to order them with no more than two clicks whenever you want, since you'll discover this type of an option both on our order page and inside your billing CP. In the first case, the dedicated addresses shall be available the instant the virtual server is prepared, while in the second - a few minutes after you order them. You can renew the IPs along with your VPS plan and use them for as long as you'd like. They can come in handy not simply for your own websites, but also for the websites of any clients that you might have in the event that you are using the virtual server to run a web hosting reseller business. There is no limitation on how many times you can order additional IPs or on the number of of them you could use with your server at any given time.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting

In case 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 even more IPs, you could request them at any time via your billing area and we shall assign them to the server a few moments later. You may even get additional IPs during the signup process and they shall be available on your machine the instant it's set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you may pick how many addresses you'll order and how long you shall use them, since you will be able to select the number of IPs that you will renew on a monthly basis with your web server plan. Any IP address that's assigned to your dedicated server may be used not only for your personal content, but also for any website or app that your customers may have - if you have acquired the hosting server with the purpose to resell the disk space to third parties.
