An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes a site or a hosting server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed just by your sites and will not be shared with other people as it happens with shared 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. In case you have an Internet store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make sure that the payment info that your customers submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some type and you wish the usernames and the passwords that visitors input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which needs to be different from the one which you already have on the web server. You might also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better performance for a particular site, which may affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS

If you choose one of the virtual private servers packages which we provide, you will get 1 dedicated IP address, and with any web server which is ordered with a Control Panel, we provide a second one free of charge. If you want to use additional IPs, you can add them to your package deal with only a few mouse clicks anytime. In case you need them immediately, for example, you can add them to your order and they will be assigned to your VPS the moment it's set up. In case you need them later, you can add them through your billing CP and they'll be available within a couple of minutes. You can assign them to personal Internet sites with several mouse clicks or to any of your customers - if you're using the virtual server to start your own web hosting business. You may benefit from this upgrade as often as you like and you'll be able to renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for so long as required.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting

In case you get 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 need more IPs, you can request them anytime via your billing area and we'll assign them to the hosting server a few moments later. You can even get additional IPs during the signup process and they'll be available on your web server the moment it is ready and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you may select how many addresses you'll order and how long you will use them, as you could select the number of IPs that you will renew every month with your hosting 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 site or application your customers may have - if you have acquired the server with the intent to resell the disk space to third parties.
