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 used solely by your websites and will not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. In case you have your own hosting server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for a variety of purposes. If you have an electronic store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, to ensure that the payment info which your clients submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some type and you want the usernames and the passwords that visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which ought to be different from the one that you already have on the web server. You could also need a separate IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better efficiency for a certain website, which shall affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Hosting

Each and every VPS hosting service we provide features one dedicated IP address and if you add a hosting Control Panel to it, we will provide you with a second one at no additional cost, allowing you to use it as you see fit. If you need to use more IPs, you'll be able to order them with just a couple of clicks anytime, since you will locate such an option both on our order page and in your billing Control Panel. In the first case, the dedicated addresses will be available the instant the virtual server is set, while in the second - a couple of minutes after you purchase them. You'll be able to renew the IPs together with your VPS plan and use them for as long as you need. They can prove useful not only for your own websites, but also for the sites of any customers which you might have if you're using the virtual server to run a web hosting reseller business. There isn't a limit on how often you could order additional IPs or on how many of them you'll be able to use with your hosting server at any moment.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting

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