An IP address is a unique number which separates a site or a web server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used just by your websites and won't be shared with others as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. In case you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for different uses. If you have an Internet store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, to make certain that the payment information which your customers 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 which 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 might also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better efficiency for a particular site, which will influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting

If you choose to order one of our Linux VPS web hosting services, we shall provide you with one dedicated IP address by default and a second one 100 % free - if you add any one of the hosting Control Panels we offer to your order. Some other IPs may be purchased easily if you require them. The option is provided on the order page, so if you require more IPs right away, we'll able to assign them to your VPS whenever it's put in place and you can use them as soon as you start using the web server. If you require them for any reason later, you can order them through the billing area and they'll be available in a couple of minutes. In this way, you shall be able to assign dedicated IP addresses not just to your own websites, but also to customers' websites in case you have launched a reseller enterprise. You could order IPs as frequently as needed and renew them together with your virtual hosting server plan. If, eventually, you need less IPs, you'll have the opportunity to renew only those which you require, while the extra ones will be taken off your web server.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting that we offer feature 3 IP addresses by default and you'll be able to use them in any way you see fit. If you require more IPs for any reason, you may add them to your web server with just a few clicks without any limits as to their number or to the period for which you shall be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and if you need the IPs straight away, you may add them to the package deal during the signup procedure, while in case it turns out that you require more IPs at some point afterwards, you'll be able to order them just as easily via your billing area and we shall assign them to your dedicated server a few minutes later. The dedicated IPs may be renewed with the server plan on a monthly basis and you can determine 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 websites and for client hosting accounts - provided you're using the dedicated server as a web hosting reseller platform.
