An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes a site or a server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it will be used only by your websites and won't be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. Provided you have your own server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for different uses. If you have a web-based store, for example, you'll 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 in the event that you have a login form of some sort and you wish the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which needs to be different from the one which you already have on the machine. You could also need an independent IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better efficiency for a particular site, which will influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Hosting

Our VPS hosting come with one dedicated IP address by default. Another one is available as well - if they are ordered with a hosting CP. If you need more IPs, however, you will be able to incorporate them easily, regardless of the plan that you've picked. You can do this during the signup process in case you need them from the start or through your billing account - in the event that you need them later on. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your hosting server shortly after that and you could start using them. You may renew the IPs together with the plan for as long as you plan to use them. This upgrade is incredibly useful not just for your personal content, but also if you would like to use the virtual server to run a web hosting reseller business, since you'll be able to offer a dedicated IP to any customer who wants to use one. There isn't a restriction on the number of addresses you could order or on how frequently you could do that.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you get one of our dedicated server packages, you will get three IP addresses at no additional charge and you can use them for any purpose. If you need more IPs, you'll be able to request them at any time from your billing area and we'll assign them to the web server a few minutes later. You can also get additional IPs during the signup procedure and they'll be available on your machine the minute it's set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you could select how many addresses you'll order and how long you'll use them, since you can pick the number of IPs that you'll renew every month with your web server plan. Any IP address that is assigned to your dedicated server may be used not only for your personal content, but for any Internet site or application your customers may have - if you have purchased the web server with the intention to resell the disk space to third parties.
