An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes a website or a web server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed only by your websites and will not be shared with other people as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. If you have your own web server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for various uses. If you have an online store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make sure that the payment information that your customers submit shall be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some sort and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors input to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which should be different from the one which you already have on the hosting server. You may also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better functionality for a certain website, which will influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS

If you opt for one of the virtual private servers packages which we supply, you shall get one dedicated IP address, and with every server that is ordered with a CP, we give a second one absolutely free. If you want to use additional IPs, you may add them to your plan with a couple of mouse clicks whenever you want. In the event that you require them right away, for instance, you are able to add them to your order and they will be assigned to your VPS as soon as it's set up. In case you need them later, you may add them using your billing CP and they will be available within a couple of minutes. You may assign them to personal Internet sites with several mouse clicks or to any of your clients - if you're using the virtual server to start out your own web hosting firm. You may take full advantage of this upgrade as often as you want and you'll be able to renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for so long as desired.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting

In case you acquire one of our dedicated server packages, you'll receive three IP addresses at no additional charge and you may use them for any purpose. If you require more IPs, you may request them whenever you want from your billing area and we'll assign them to the web server a couple of minutes later. You can also get additional IPs during the signup procedure and they'll be available on your hosting server the moment it is set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of 3 and you can pick how many addresses you will order and how long you shall use them, as you can pick the number of IPs which you'll renew every month with your hosting 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 website or application that your clients may have - if you have bought the web server with the intention to resell the disk space to third parties.
