If you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - a unique number that's used to identify every device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name that you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. As there're far more websites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for several websites even in case they belong to different users. Even though this does not affect your website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a given site, granting it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you wish to secure the payment or login info that your site visitors type in, you'll need an IP along with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS

If you acquire a virtual private server from us, you'll receive one dedicated IP address automatically and an extra one when you obtain a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You're able to use the IPs for any sort of purpose - a site, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you are able to use to point to your VPS any domain name which you wish to host. Also, you can add extra dedicated IP addresses to the VPS account every time you need them. You can do this from the billing Control Panel that you'll acquire to manage renewals, upgrades and domain registrations and it will take just a couple of clicks. After you upload your order, the extra IP addresses will be available, so you can use them as you see fit.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting

All of the Linux dedicated hosting that we offer have 3 dedicated IP addresses by default and cost-free. You are able to employ them for any kind of purpose according to the content that you've got on the server - a video game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your clients may use to point domains to their website hosting accounts, and many other things. In addition, you can order more dedicated IPs through the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones that come with the plan. You're able to get the IPs in groups of three and they will be added to your dedicated server soon after you send your order, which means that you can use them with no delays.
