An IP address is a unique number which identifies an Internet site or a hosting server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed exclusively by your sites and won't be shared with others as it happens with shared hosting accounts. Provided you have your own hosting server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for a variety of purposes. Provided you have an online store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, in order to ensure that the payment info which your clients submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some type and you wish 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 hosting server. You could also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better efficiency for a given Internet site, which will affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

If you buy one of our VPS plans, we shall provide you with one dedicated IP address by default and a second one at no extra cost - if you add any of the hosting Control Panels we offer to your order. Additional IPs can be purchased with ease in the event that you need them. The option is available on the order page, so if you require more IPs from the beginning, we shall be able to assign them to your VPS whenever it is put in place and you can use them the second you begin using the web server. If you need them for any reason afterwards, you can order them from the billing area and they will be available within a couple of minutes. That way, you'll be able to assign dedicated IP addresses not only to your own Internet sites, but also to customers' websites provided you have started a reseller business. You'll be able to order IPs as often as needed and renew them together with your virtual server plan. If, eventually, you need less IPs, you shall have the chance to renew only those which you require, while the extra ones will be taken off your hosting server.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated web hosting plans that we offer feature 3 IP addresses by default and you could use them in whatever way you see fit. In case you require additional IPs for any reason, you'll be able to add them to your server with just a few clicks without restrictions as to their number or the length of time for which you'll be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and if you need the IPs right from the start, you can add them to the package deal during the signup process, while in case it turns out that you require more IPs at some point later, you'll be able to order them just as effortlessly using your billing area and we shall assign them to your dedicated server several minutes later. The dedicated IPs may be renewed along with the server plan on a monthly basis and you can determine if you will renew all of them or only a few - if you no longer require that many. You may use the IPs both for your own websites and for client hosting accounts - if you're using the dedicated server as a web hosting reseller platform.
