An IP address is a unique number that separates a website or a web server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it will be used solely by your sites and will not be shared with other people as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. In case you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for different uses. Provided you have a web-based store, for example, you will need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make sure that the payment information which your clients submit will 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 that visitors input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which should be different from the one which you already have on the hosting server. You could also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better performance for a given website, which may influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS

Our VPS packages provide one dedicated IP address by default. A second one is available as well - in case they are ordered with an Internet hosting CP. In the event that you require more IPs, however, you will be able to incorporate them easily, whatever the package that you have selected. You'll be able to do this during the signup procedure in case you need them from the beginning or through your billing account - in the event that you need them later. The dedicated IPs will be assigned to your web server soon after that and you could begin using them. You'll be able to renew the IPs along with the plan for as long as you want to use them. This upgrade is quite useful not only for your personal content, but also when you would like to use the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business, because you will be able to provide a dedicated IP to every client who would want to use one. There is no restriction on the number of addresses you'll be able to order or on how often you could do that.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting

If you acquire one of our dedicated server solutions, you'll get three IP addresses at no additional charge and you'll be able to use them for any purpose. If you need additional IPs, you'll be able to request them whenever you want via your billing area and we shall assign them to the hosting server a couple of minutes later. You may also get more IPs during the signup process and they'll be available on your machine the instant it is all set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of 3 and you can choose 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 each month 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 for any Internet site or app that your customers may have - if you have obtained the hosting server with the aim to resell the disk space to third parties.
