An IP address is a unique number that identifies a site or a server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used just by your websites and won't be shared with other people as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. Provided you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for various uses. If you have an online store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment information your clients submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some kind and you wish the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which has to be different from the one which you already have on the hosting server. You might also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better performance for a certain Internet site, which will affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting

Our Linux VPS web hosting services include one dedicated IP address by default. An additional one is available as well - in case they are ordered with a hosting Control Panel. If you need more IPs, however, you'll be able to incorporate them with ease, no matter the package that you've selected. You are able to do this during the signup procedure if you need them from the very beginning or via your billing account - if you need them later on. The dedicated IPs will be assigned to your hosting server soon after that and you may start using them. You could renew the IPs together with the plan for as long as you plan to use them. This upgrade is incredibly useful not simply for your personal content, but also in the event that you intend to use the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business, considering the fact that you'll be able to supply a dedicated IP to any client who would want to use one. There isn't any restriction on the number of addresses you could order or on how frequently you may do that.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting

In case you obtain one of our dedicated server plans, you will get three IP addresses at no additional charge and you'll be able to use them for any purpose. If you require additional IPs, you may request them anytime via your billing area and we will assign them to the web server a couple of minutes later. You may even get additional IPs during the signup procedure and they will be available on your hosting server the moment it's ready and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of 3 and you could pick how many addresses you'll order and how long you will use them, as you could pick the number of IPs which you will renew each month with your hosting server plan. Any IP address that is assigned to your dedicated server can be used not just for your personal content, but also for any site or application which your clients may have - if you have bought the web server with the goal to resell the disk space to third parties.
