An IP address is a unique number which separates a site or a hosting server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed exclusively by your sites and will not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. If you have your own hosting server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for various uses. In case you have an online store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment information that your customers submit shall be encrypted and protected. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you wish the usernames and the passwords that visitors input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which needs 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 need a slightly better efficiency for a certain website, which may affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Hosting

If you decide to buy one of our Linux VPS hosting packages, we'll provide you with one dedicated IP address by default and a second one absolutely free - in the event that you add any of the hosting Control Panels we offer to your order. More IPs can be purchased easily in case you require them. The option is offered on the order page, so in the event that you need more IPs from the beginning, we'll able to assign them to your VPS the minute it is put in place and you can use them the instant 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 in a matter of minutes. This way, you shall be able to assign dedicated IP addresses not only to your own websites, but also to customers' websites provided you have started out a reseller enterprise. You'll be able to order IPs as often as needed and renew them together with your virtual web server plan. If, eventually, you require less IPs, you will have the opportunity to renew only those that you require, while the extra ones will be taken off your hosting server.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you obtain one of our dedicated server solutions, you'll receive 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 from your billing area and we'll assign them to the web server a few minutes later. You may also get additional IPs during the signup procedure and they'll be available on your machine the minute it's ready and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you'll be able to decide how many addresses you'll order and how long you'll use them, since you can select the number of IPs which you will renew on a monthly basis with your web server plan. Any IP address that is assigned to your dedicated server may be used not just for your personal content, but also for any site or app which your clients may have - if you have bought the machine with the intention to resell the disk space to third parties.
