An IP address is a unique number that identifies a site or a web server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be used exclusively by your websites and won't be shared with other people as it happens with shared hosting accounts. Provided you have your own hosting server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for many different purposes. If you have a web-based store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, so as to ensure that the payment info which your clients submit will be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some sort and you want the usernames and the passwords that visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which needs to be different from the one that you already have on the hosting server. You may also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better performance for a certain Internet site, which will affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

Our VPS hosting plans feature one dedicated IP address by default. Another one is available too - in case they are ordered with an Internet hosting CP. In the event that you need more IPs, however, you will be able to incorporate them effortlessly, whatever the plan that you have picked. You can do this during the signup procedure in case you need them from the beginning or through your billing account - if you need them later on. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your web server shortly after that and you could start using them. You could renew the IPs together with the plan for as long as you want to use them. This upgrade is quite useful not simply for your personal content, but also if you wish to use the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business, because you'll be able to provide a dedicated IP to every client who would like to use one. There isn't any restriction on how many addresses you'll be able to order or on how frequently you could do that.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

If you obtain one of our dedicated server packages, you'll get 3 IP addresses at no additional charge and you could use them for any purpose. If you require more IPs, you may request them at any time through your billing area and we'll assign them to the hosting server a few minutes later. You may even get additional IPs during the signup procedure and they shall be available on your web server the moment it's ready and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of 3 and you may pick how many addresses you will order and how long you will use them, since you will be able to choose the number of IPs that you will renew every month with your server plan. Any IP address that's assigned to your dedicated server can be used not just for your personal content, but also for any Internet site or app that your clients may have - if you have purchased the hosting server with the purpose to resell the disk space to third parties.
