An IP address is a unique number which identifies a site or a hosting server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed solely by your sites and will not be shared with other people as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. If you have your own hosting server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for various uses. If you have a web-based store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make certain that the payment info that your clients submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some type and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors input to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which has to be different from the one which you already have on the machine. You might also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better functionality for a particular website, which may affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting

If you opt for one of the virtual private servers plans that we offer, you shall get 1 dedicated IP address, and with every hosting server which is ordered with a Control Panel, we give a second one totally free. If you want to use additional IPs, you could add them to your plan with a couple of mouse clicks whenever you want. In case you require them right away, for instance, you'll be able to add them to your order and they will be assigned to your VPS as soon as it is set up. If you need them later, you can add them via your billing Control Panel and they will be available within a couple of minutes. You can assign them to personal Internet sites with a couple of mouse clicks or to any of your clients - if you're using the virtual server to start your own web hosting business. You can take full advantage of this upgrade as often as you like and you'll be able to renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for so long as required.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you get one of our dedicated server packages, you'll receive three IP addresses at no additional charge and you may use them for any purpose. If you need additional IPs, you can request them at any time through your billing area and we'll assign them to the web server a couple of minutes later. You can also get additional IPs during the signup procedure and they shall be available on your machine the instant it's set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of 3 and you can decide how many addresses you'll order and how long you'll use them, since you could select the number of IPs that you'll renew every month with your web server plan. Any IP address that's assigned to your dedicated server could be used not only for your personal content, but for any Internet site or application your clients may have - if you have bought the hosting server with the purpose to resell the disk space to third parties.
