An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes an Internet site or a server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed just by your websites and shall not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. In case you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for various uses. If you have an Internet store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, to ensure that the payment info your clients submit will be encrypted and safe. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which ought to be different from the one that you already have on the machine. You might also need an independent IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better efficiency for a given site, which may affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS

Each and every VPS package we offer includes one dedicated IP address and if you add a web hosting Control Panel to it, we'll provide you with a second one at no additional cost, so that you can use it the way you see fit. If you need to use more IPs, you will be able to order them with just two mouse clicks whenever you want, since you will locate such an option both on our order page and within your billing CP. In the first case, the dedicated addresses will be available the instant the virtual server is set, while in the second - a few moments after you buy them. You can renew the IPs along with your VPS plan and use them for as long as you need. They can come in handy not only for your own websites, but also for the websites of any customers that you could have in the event that you're using the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business. There is no limit on how often you'll be able to order additional IPs or on the number of of them you'll be able to use with your machine at any time.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting

If you get one of our dedicated server plans, you'll get three IP addresses at no additional charge and you may use them for any purpose. If you need even more IPs, you could request them at any time via your billing area and we shall assign them to the server a few moments later. You may also get more IPs during the signup process and they shall be available on your machine the moment it's ready and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you can pick how many addresses you will order and how long you shall use them, since you will be able to pick the number of IPs that you will renew on a monthly basis with your web server plan.
