An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes a site or a hosting server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be used solely by your sites and shall not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. Provided you have your own web server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for various purposes. In case you have a web-based store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make sure that the payment information your customers submit will be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some kind and you wish the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which needs to be different from the one which you already have on the hosting server. You might also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better efficiency for a given Internet site, which will influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Hosting

If you purchase one of our VPS hosting packages, we will give you one dedicated IP address by default and a second one 100 % free - if you add any of the hosting Control Panels which we offer to your order. Some other IPs may be purchased easily if you require them. The option is offered on the order page, so if you require more IPs right away, we can assign them to your VPS the minute it's put in place and you can use them as soon as you start using the machine. If you require them for any reason afterwards, you can order them via the billing area and they shall be available in a few minutes. In this way, you'll be able to assign dedicated IP addresses not only to your own Internet sites, but also to customers' websites provided you've launched a reseller business. You'll be able to order IPs as often as required and renew them along with your virtual hosting server plan. If, sooner or later, you require less IPs, you will have the opportunity to renew just those which you need, while the extra ones will be taken off your machine.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you obtain one of our dedicated server packages, you will get three IP addresses at no additional charge and you could use them for any purpose. If you require even more IPs, you can request them at any time through your billing area and we will assign them to the server a couple of minutes later. You can also get more IPs during the signup process and they will be available on your hosting server the instant it is set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you'll be able to decide how many addresses you'll order and how long you will use them, since you will be able to choose the number of IPs which you'll renew on a monthly basis with your hosting server plan. Any IP address that is assigned to your dedicated server could be used not just for your personal content, but also for any Internet site or application your clients may have - if you have bought the web server with the intention to resell the disk space to third parties.
