An IP address is a unique number which identifies a website or a hosting server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed only by your Internet sites and shall not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. In case you have your own web server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for various uses. In case you have a web-based store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, to make certain that the payment information your clients submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid if you have a login form of some type and you would like the usernames and the passwords that visitors input to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which needs to be different from the one that you already have on the machine. You may also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better overall performance for a particular site, which shall influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS

If you opt for one of the virtual private servers packages which we supply, you will get 1 dedicated IP address, and with every server that's ordered with a CP, we provide a second one 100 % free. If you wish to use additional IPs, you can add them to your plan with just a few clicks whenever you want. In case you require them immediately, for instance, you'll be able to add them to your order and they'll be assigned to your VPS the moment it's set up. In the event that you need them later, you could add them using your billing Control Panel and they shall be available within a couple of minutes. You can assign them to personal sites with several clicks or to any of your clients - if you're using the virtual server to start out your own hosting company. You can take full advantage of this upgrade as often as you want and you may renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for so long as desired.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting

If you get one of our dedicated server plans, you will get three IP addresses at no additional charge and you can use them for any purpose. If you require more IPs, you could request them whenever you want from your billing area and we shall assign them to the server a couple of minutes later. You can also get more IPs during the signup process and they shall be available on your machine as soon as it is all set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of 3 and you can pick how many addresses you'll order and how long you will use them, since you will be able to choose the number of IPs which you will 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 Internet site or app your clients may have - if you have acquired the server with the intention to resell the disk space to third parties.
