An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes a site or a server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used only by your websites and will not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. If you have your own hosting server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for different uses. If you have an Internet store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make certain that the payment info that your clients submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid if 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, which needs to be different from the one that you already have on the web server. You might also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better efficiency for a particular Internet site, which shall affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

If you choose to order one of our Linux VPS hosting service, we will supply 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. Some other IPs can be purchased effortlessly if you require them. The option is provided on the order page, so in case you require more IPs from the start, we shall be able to assign them to your VPS the minute it is put in place and you can use them the moment you begin using the server. If you need them for any reason afterwards, you can order them from the billing area and they will be available in a couple of minutes. In this way, you'll be able to assign dedicated IP addresses not just to your own sites, but also to clients' sites in case you have started 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, eventually, you need less IPs, you will have the opportunity to renew only those that you need, while the extra ones shall be taken off your web server.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

Every single dedicated server that we offer includes 3 dedicated IP addresses supplied free of charge on top of the monthly fee for the package deal. We also give you the opportunity to add more IPs to your server both when you sign up and at a later time via your billing Control Panel, so you'll be able to order the IPs whenever you need them without a restriction on the amount or on how frequently you get them. They may be purchased in groups of three and will be assigned to your server instantly. You can renew them with the hosting plan and you may choose if you will renew all of them, or a smaller amount - in the event that you no longer need the rest. Every dedicated IP address allotted to your server could be used for any purpose: for a personal site, for a software server, or for a hosting customer - if you've decided to start off your own Internet hosting enterprise and you're reselling accounts to other people.
