An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes a website or a server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used solely 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 server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for different purposes. In case you have a web-based store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make sure that the payment info your customers 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 which visitors enter to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which has to be different from the one that you already have on the server. You might also need an individual IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better performance for a particular Internet site, which may influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

Our VPS servers provide one dedicated IP address by default. Another one is available as well - in case they are ordered with an Internet hosting Control Panel. If you need more IPs, however, you'll be able to include them easily, regardless of the plan which you've chosen. You may do this during the signup process in case you need them from the very beginning or via your billing account - in the event that you need them afterwards. The dedicated IPs will be assigned to your server right after that and you can begin using them. You may renew the IPs along with the plan for as long as you want to use them. This upgrade is extremely useful not simply for your personal content, but also in case you wish to use the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business, since you'll be able to supply a dedicated IP to every customer who wants to use one. There is no restriction on how many addresses you'll be able to order or on how many times you may do that.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

All Linux dedicated web hosting plans we offer include 3 IP addresses by default and you could use them in whatever way you see fit. In case you require additional IPs for any reason, you can add them to your web server with several clicks with no limitations as to their number or the period for which you will be able to employ them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in case you require the IPs right from the start, you'll be able to add them to the package deal during the signup procedure, while if it turns out that you need more IPs at some point later, you may order them just as effortlessly using your billing area and we will assign them to your dedicated server a few moments later. The dedicated IPs could be renewed together with the web server plan on a monthly basis and you'll be able to choose if you'll renew all of them or simply a few - in case you no longer need that many. You can use the IPs both for your own Internet sites and for customer hosting accounts - if you are using the dedicated server as a web hosting reseller platform.
