An IP address is a unique number that separates a site or a hosting server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be used solely by your Internet sites and will not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. If you have your own hosting server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for various uses. In case you have a web-based store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, so as to ensure that the payment info that your customers submit shall be encrypted and protected. The same is valid if you have a login form of some type and you want the usernames and the passwords which visitors input to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which needs to be different from the one which you already have on the web server. You may also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better performance for a particular site, which will influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS

Our Linux VPS services feature one dedicated IP address by default. Another one is available as well - if they are ordered with a web hosting Control Panel. In the event that you need more IPs, however, you shall be able to add them with ease, no matter the package which you have chosen. You are able to do this during the signup procedure in case you need them from the start or using your billing account - in case you need them later on. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your web server shortly after that and you may start 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 only for your personal content, but also when you want to use the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business, considering the fact that you'll be able to offer a dedicated IP to every client who wants to use one. There isn't a restriction on how many addresses you could order or on how frequently you can do that.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting

Every dedicated server that we offer features three dedicated IP addresses provided at no extra cost on top of the monthly fee for the package. We also give you the opportunity to add more IPs to your hosting server both when you sign up and at a later time using your billing CP, so you could order the IPs whenever you need them without a restriction on the amount or on how often you get them. They could be purchased in groups of 3 and shall be assigned to your hosting server instantly. You can renew them with the hosting plan and you may choose if you will renew all of them, or a smaller number - if you no longer need the rest. Each and every dedicated IP address allocated to your server can be used for any purpose: for a personal website, for a software hosting server, or for a hosting customer - in the event that you have decided to start your own web hosting firm and you are reselling accounts to other people.
