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 employed only by your websites and won't be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. Provided you have your own server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for different uses. Provided you have an Internet store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make sure that the payment info that your clients submit shall be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in the event that 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 should be different from the one that you already have on the server. 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 website, which will affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS

If you choose one of the virtual private servers plans which we provide, you shall get one dedicated IP address, and with any server that's ordered with a Control Panel, we provide a second one at no extra cost. If you'd like to use additional IPs, you may add them to your plan with only a few clicks at any time. If you require them at once, for instance, you may add them to your order and they will be assigned to your VPS the minute it is set up. In case you need them later, you may add them through your billing CP and they will be available within a few minutes. You may assign them to personal sites with a few mouse clicks or to any of your customers - if you're using the virtual server to start your own web hosting business. You'll be able to benefit from this upgrade as often as you like and you'll be able to renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for as long as required.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting

In case you get one of our dedicated server packages, you'll receive 3 IP addresses at no additional charge and you'll be able to use them for any purpose. If you need even more IPs, you'll be able to request them whenever you want from your billing area and we'll assign them to the hosting server a couple of minutes later. You can even get additional IPs during the signup procedure and they shall be available on your machine as soon as it's set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you'll be able to choose how many addresses you'll order and how long you'll use them, since you can choose the number of IPs which you will renew each month with your web server plan. Any IP address that is assigned to your dedicated server could be used not only for your personal content, but for any Internet site or app your customers may have - if you have purchased the server with the purpose to resell the disk space to third parties.
