An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes a website or a web server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed just by your sites and will not be shared with other people as it happens with shared hosting accounts. Provided you have your own web server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for various uses. Provided you have an Internet store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, to ensure that the payment info that your customers submit shall be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some kind and you want the usernames and the passwords that visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which ought to be different from the one that you already have on the web server. You might also need an individual IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better efficiency for a particular website, which shall affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

If you decide to purchase one of our VPS servers, we will give you one dedicated IP address by default and a second one at no extra cost - in the event that you add any one of the hosting Control Panels that we offer to your order. More IPs may be purchased effortlessly if you require them. The option is available on the order page, so in the event that you require more IPs from the start, we'll able to assign them to your VPS the moment it is put in place and you can use them the moment you start using the machine. If you require them for any reason afterwards, you can order them via the billing area and they'll be available within a few minutes. That way, you'll be able to assign dedicated IP addresses not only to your own Internet sites, but also to customers' websites provided you've started out a reseller business. You could order IPs as often as needed and renew them along with your virtual server plan. If, sooner or later, you require less IPs, you will have the opportunity to renew just those that you need, while the extra ones will be removed from your server.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

If you obtain one of our dedicated server solutions, 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 anytime via your billing area and we will assign them to the hosting server a few minutes later. You can even get more IPs during the signup process and they'll be available on your machine the minute it is all set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of 3 and you can decide how many addresses you will order and how long you shall use them, since you could select the number of IPs that you'll renew each month with your server plan. Any IP address that is assigned to your dedicated server could be used not just for your personal content, but also for any site or application that your clients may have - if you have obtained the server with the intent to resell the disk space to third parties.
