An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes an Internet site or a web server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used just by your Internet sites and will not 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 additional ones for different purposes. 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 which your clients submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which ought to be different from the one that you already have on the server. You might also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better functionality for a certain website, which may affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

Our VPS web hosting plans feature one dedicated IP address by default. Another one is available too - if they are ordered with a hosting CP. If you require more IPs, however, you'll be able to incorporate them easily, whatever the package that you have chosen. You can do this during the signup process in case you need them from the start or via your billing account - if you need them later on. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your hosting server right after that and you could begin using them. You may renew the IPs along with the plan for as long as you intend to use them. This upgrade is incredibly useful not just for your personal content, but also in case you would like to use the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business, because you shall be able to offer a dedicated IP to every client who would like to use one. There isn't a restriction on the amount of addresses you may order or on how frequently you could do that.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

In case you get one of our dedicated server plans, you'll receive 3 IP addresses at no additional charge and you may use them for any purpose. If you require more IPs, you may request them anytime via your billing area and we'll assign them to the web server a couple of minutes later. You may even get more IPs during the signup procedure and they will be available on your hosting server the minute it is set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you'll be able to select how many addresses you will order and how long you'll use them, since you can select the number of IPs which you'll renew every month with your server plan. Any IP address that's assigned to your dedicated server could be used not only for your personal content, but for any site or application which your customers may have - if you have acquired the server with the goal to resell the disk space to third parties.
