An IP address is a unique number that separates a site or a web server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it will be used solely by your sites and will not be shared with others as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. Provided you have your own hosting server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for various uses. Provided you have an online store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, to make certain that the payment information which your customers submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you want the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which has to be different from the one which you already have on the hosting server. You might also need an independent IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better functionality for a particular website, which shall influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting

If you choose to purchase one of our Linux VPS web hosting packages, we'll supply you with one dedicated IP address by default and a second one totally free - in the event that you add any of the hosting Control Panels which we offer to your order. Some other IPs can be purchased effortlessly in the event that you require them. The option is available on the order page, so if you need more IPs from the beginning, we can assign them to your VPS the instant it is set up and you can use them the moment you begin using the web server. If you require them for any reason later, you can order them via the billing area and they will be available in a couple of minutes. This way, you'll be able to assign dedicated IP addresses not just to your own sites, but also to clients' websites in case you've started a reseller enterprise. You can order IPs as frequently as needed and renew them along with your virtual hosting server plan. If, eventually, you need less IPs, you shall have the opportunity to renew just those which you require, while the extra ones will be taken off your web server.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you obtain one of our dedicated server solutions, you'll get 3 IP addresses at no additional charge and you could use them for any purpose. If you need even more IPs, you'll be able to request them anytime through your billing area and we'll assign them to the web server a couple of minutes later. You may also get more IPs during the signup process and they shall be available on your server the moment it is set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you could choose how many addresses you will order and how long you shall use them, as you could select the number of IPs that you'll renew on a monthly basis with your web server plan. Any IP address which is assigned to your dedicated server may be used not only for your personal content, but for any site or application that your clients may have - if you have purchased the web server with the purpose to resell the disk space to third parties.
