An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes a website or a hosting server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used only by your sites and won't be shared with other people as it happens with shared hosting accounts. In case you have your own web server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for different uses. In case you have an electronic store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make certain that the payment information your customers submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid if you have a login form of some sort and you would like the usernames and the passwords that visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which has to be different from the one which you already have on the web server. You could also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better overall performance for a particular site, which may affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting

If you choose to buy one of our Linux VPS web hosting, we shall supply you with one dedicated IP address by default and a second one free of charge - if you add any of the hosting Control Panels we offer to your order. More IPs could be purchased effortlessly in the event that you require them. The option is provided on the order page, so in the event that you require more IPs from the start, we shall be able to assign them to your VPS whenever it's put in place and you can use them the minute you start using the machine. If you need them for any reason later, you can order them through the billing area and they shall be available in a couple of minutes. That way, you can assign dedicated IP addresses not only to your own websites, but also to customers' sites in case you have started out a reseller business. You could order IPs as often as needed and renew them together with your virtual server plan. If, at some point, you need less IPs, you shall have the opportunity to renew just those that you need, while the extra ones shall be taken off your server.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting

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