An IP address is a unique number which separates a website or a web server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used just by your sites and won't be shared with other people as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. If you have your own web server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for many different uses. Provided you have an Internet store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make certain that the payment information that your clients submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some sort and you wish the usernames and the passwords which visitors input to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which should be different from the one which you already have on the web server. You could also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better efficiency for a given Internet site, which shall influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

Our VPS servers provide one dedicated IP address by default. Another one is available also - if they are ordered with a hosting CP. If you need more IPs, however, you will be able to incorporate them easily, regardless of the package which you have picked. You'll be able to do this during the signup process if you need them from the start or via your billing account - in case you need them afterwards. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your hosting server shortly after that and you'll be able to begin using them. You could renew the IPs along with the plan for as long as you want to use them. This upgrade is very useful not only for your personal content, but also in the event that you wish to use the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business, considering that you shall be able to provide a dedicated IP to any client who wants to use one. There's no restriction on the amount of addresses you'll be able to order or on how many times you'll be able to do that.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

If you obtain one of our dedicated server packages, 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 at any time 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 shall be available on your machine the moment it is all set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you can select how many addresses you will order and how long you will use them, since you can select the number of IPs that you will renew each month with your server plan. Any IP address that's assigned to your dedicated server could be used not just for your personal content, but for any site or app which your customers may have - if you have bought the web server with the purpose to resell the disk space to third parties.
