An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes a site or a web server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed only by your sites and won't be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. If you have your own web server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for a variety of uses. Provided you have an electronic store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make certain that the payment information that your clients submit shall be encrypted and protected. 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 protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which should be different from the one which you already have on the web server. You may also need an independent IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better performance for a certain website, which may affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
If you choose to purchase one of our VPS hosting plans
, we'll provide you with one dedicated IP address by default and a second one free of charge - if you add any of the hosting Control Panels that we offer to your order. Additional IPs can be purchased with ease if you require them. The option is available on the order page, so in case you need more IPs from the start, we'll able to assign them to your VPS the moment it's set up and you can use them the second you begin using the hosting server. If you require them for any reason later, you can order them via the billing area and they shall be available in a few minutes. In this way, you'll be able to assign dedicated IP addresses not only to your own Internet sites, but also to customers' sites in case you've started a reseller business. You could order IPs as often as required and renew them together with your virtual hosting server plan. If, at some point, you need less IPs, you'll have the chance to renew just those that you need, while the extra ones will be removed from your server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
We give three 100 % free dedicated IP addresses with every single dedicated server
we offer, but in case you need more, you may order them effortlessly and they shall be assigned to your machine right away. The upgrade can be purchased both on our order page and within the billing Control Panel, so you can get additional IPs whenever you need them - in the beginning or at any time later. You could order the upgrade in increments of three and add as many IP addresses as you require at any time. You could renew only the IPs which you need together with the Internet hosting plan, so if, at some point, you need less IPs, you can simply renew those you need and the other ones will be removed from your hosting server. With our upgrade, you can use a dedicated address not only for your websites and apps, but also for your clients’ Internet sites and applications - in case you're using the server to run an Internet hosting reseller business. Any IP on top of the default three IPs could be employed for as long as you need it.
