An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes an Internet site or a server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used just by your Internet sites and shall not be shared with other individuals 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 additional ones for a variety of purposes. In case you have an online store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make certain that the payment info your clients submit will be encrypted and secure. The same is valid if you have a login form of some sort and you want the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which has to be different from the one that 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 want a slightly better overall performance for a certain Internet site, which shall affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

If you purchase one of our VPS servers, we shall supply you with one dedicated IP address by default and a second one totally free - in case you add any of the hosting Control Panels which we offer to your order. More IPs may be purchased easily in the event that you require them. The option is offered on the order page, so if you require more IPs right away, we'll able to assign them to your VPS the minute it is put in place and you can use them the instant you begin using the machine. If you require them for any reason afterwards, you can order them through the billing area and they shall be available in a matter of minutes. Thus, you shall be able to assign dedicated IP addresses not just to your own websites, but also to customers' websites provided you've launched a reseller enterprise. You can order IPs as often as required and renew them together with your virtual web server plan. If, at some point, you require less IPs, you will have the opportunity to renew just those that you require, while the extra ones shall be taken off your server.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

When you acquire one of our dedicated server plans, you will get three IP addresses at no additional charge and you can use them for any purpose. If you require additional IPs, you may request them whenever you want through your billing area and we will assign them to the server a couple of minutes later. You may even get additional IPs during the signup procedure and they shall be available on your server the instant it's set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you could pick how many addresses you will order and how long you'll use them, since you will be able to pick the number of IPs which you'll renew each month with your hosting server plan. Any IP address which is assigned to your dedicated server could be used not just for your personal content, but also for any site or application your customers may have - if you have bought the web server with the intention to resell the disk space to third parties.
