An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes a website or a web server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed exclusively by your Internet sites and won't be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared hosting accounts. Provided you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for different purposes. Provided you have an electronic store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, to make certain that the payment info that your customers submit will be encrypted and secure. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you want the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which needs to be different from the one which you already have on the server. You may also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better overall performance for a certain website, which may influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

Our Linux VPS plans come with one dedicated IP address by default. A second one is available as well - in case they are ordered with a web hosting Control Panel. In case you require more IPs, however, you'll be able to incorporate them with ease, regardless of the package which you have chosen. You'll be able to do this during the signup procedure in case you need them from the very beginning or via your billing account - in the event that you need them later on. The dedicated IPs will be assigned to your hosting server shortly after that and you could begin using them. You may renew the IPs together with the plan for as long as you plan to use them. This upgrade is extremely useful not only for your personal content, but also in case you would like to use the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business, because you will be able to supply a dedicated IP to any client who would like to use one. There's no restriction on the amount of addresses you'll be able to order or on how often you could do that.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server we offer comes with three dedicated IP addresses provided free of charge on top of the monthly fee for the package. We also give you the chance to add more IPs to your web server both when you sign up and at a later time through your billing CP, so you'll be able to order the IPs whenever you require them without a limitation on the amount or on how frequently you get them. They could be purchased in groups of 3 and will be assigned to your server immediately. You could renew them with the hosting plan and you'll be able to choose if you'll renew all of them, or a smaller amount - in case you no longer need the rest. Every dedicated IP address assigned to your web server can be used for any purpose: for a personal site, for a software web server, or for a hosting customer - if you've decided to start out your own Internet hosting firm and you're reselling accounts to other people.
