An IP address is a unique number that identifies an Internet site or a web server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used exclusively by your websites and shall not be shared with other people as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. In case you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for many different uses. Provided you have a web-based store, for example, you will need an SSL certificate for it, in order to ensure that the payment information that your clients submit shall be encrypted and protected. The same is valid if you have a login form of some type and you want the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which should be different from the one that you already have on the server. You might also need a separate IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better performance for a given website, which will affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

Our VPS web hosting plans feature one dedicated IP address by default. Another one is available also - in case they are ordered with an Internet hosting Control Panel. In the event that you require more IPs, however, you shall be able to add them with ease, no matter the plan which you have chosen. You could do this during the signup procedure in the event that you need them from the beginning or through your billing account - in case you need them later on. The dedicated IPs will be assigned to your web server right after that and you'll be able to start using them. You could renew the IPs together with the plan for so long as you intend to use them. This upgrade is quite useful not simply for your personal content, but also if you wish to use the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business, considering that you shall be able to provide a dedicated IP to any client who would like to use one. There's no restriction on how many addresses you could order or on how frequently you'll be able to do that.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

When you acquire one of our dedicated server plans, you will get 3 IP addresses at no additional charge and you'll be able to use them for any purpose. If you need more IPs, you can request them anytime from your billing area and we will assign them to the web server a few minutes later. You may also get additional IPs during the signup process and they'll be available on your web server the instant it's all set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you may choose how many addresses you will order and how long you'll use them, as you will be able to choose the number of IPs which you'll renew on a monthly basis with your hosting server plan. Any IP address which is assigned to your dedicated server may be used not just for your personal content, but also for any website or app which your clients may have - if you have bought the machine with the intention to resell the disk space to third parties.
