An IP address is a unique number that identifies an Internet site or a hosting server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used exclusively by your Internet sites and shall not be shared with others as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. In case you have your own server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for a variety of uses. If you have an online store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, to make certain that the payment information which your customers submit will be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some sort and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which ought to be different from the one which you already have on the hosting server. You may also need an independent IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better efficiency for a certain site, which shall affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting

Every single VPS web hosting service which we provide comes with 1 dedicated IP address and if you add a web hosting CP to it, we will provide you with a second one at no additional cost, so that you can use it the way you see fit. If you need to use more IPs, you'll be able to order them with only two mouse clicks whenever you want, since you will locate this sort of an option both on our order page and in your billing Control Panel. In the first case, the dedicated addresses will be available the instant the virtual server is prepared, while in the second - a couple of minutes after you order them. You can renew the IPs together with your VPS plan and use them for so long as you would like. They can prove useful not just for your own Internet sites, but also for the Internet sites of any customers that you might have in case you're using the virtual server to run a web hosting reseller business. There isn't any restriction on how many times you'll be able to order additional IPs or on the amount of of them you could use with your machine at any given time.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you get one of our dedicated server packages, you will get three IP addresses at no additional charge and you may use them for any purpose. If you require additional IPs, you'll be able to request them at any time from your billing area and we'll assign them to the hosting server a couple of minutes later. You may even get additional IPs during the signup procedure and they will be available on your web server the instant it is all set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you can select how many addresses you will order and how long you'll use them, as you can pick the number of IPs which you will renew every month with your server plan. Any IP address that is assigned to your dedicated server may be used not just for your personal content, but for any site or application that your clients may have - if you have purchased the machine with the purpose to resell the disk space to third parties.
