An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes an Internet site or a web server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed only by your sites and will not be shared with other people as it happens with shared hosting accounts. In case you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for various uses. In case you have a web-based store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make sure that the payment information which your clients submit will be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some kind and you would like the usernames and the passwords that visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which should be different from the one which you already have on the web server. You could also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better performance for a certain website, which may influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS

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

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages we offer include 3 IP addresses by default and you'll be able to use them in any way you see fit. In the event that you need additional IPs for any reason, you can add them to your hosting server with just a few clicks without limitations as to their number or to the length of time for which you will be able to employ them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in the event that you need the IPs right away, you may add them to the package deal during the signup process, while if it turns out that you need more IPs at some point later, you'll be able to order them just as quickly through your billing area and we shall assign them to your dedicated server a few minutes later. The dedicated IPs may be renewed together with the web server plan on a monthly basis and you'll be able to decide if you'll renew all of them or just a few - in the event that you no longer need that many. You may 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.
