An IP address is a unique number that separates a website or a server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed solely by your websites and won't be shared with other people as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. Provided you have your own web server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for different purposes. If you have an online store, for example, you will need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make sure that the payment information that your clients submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you would like the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which needs to be different from the one that you already have on the server. You might also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better efficiency for a given site, which will affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

Each VPS server service which we provide includes one dedicated IP address and if you add a web hosting Control Panel to it, we shall provide you with a second one at no additional cost, so you can use it the way you see fit. If you would like to use more IPs, you will be able to order them with no more than two clicks whenever you want, since you'll discover this kind of an option both on our order page and in your billing CP. In the first case, the dedicated addresses shall be available the moment the virtual server is set, while in the second - a couple of minutes after you purchase them. You could renew the IPs together with your VPS plan and use them for so long as you wish. They can be useful not simply for your own sites, but also for the websites of any customers which you could have in case you are using the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business. There is no limitation on how often you'll be able to order additional IPs or on the amount of of them you can use with your web server at any moment.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

When you obtain one of our dedicated server solutions, you'll receive three IP addresses at no additional charge and you may use them for any purpose. If you need even more IPs, you'll be able to request them at any time via your billing area and we will assign them to the server a few minutes later. You can even get additional IPs during the signup procedure and they will be available on your server as soon as it is ready and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you can 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 that you will renew each month with your web server plan. Any IP address that's assigned to your dedicated server could be used not only for your personal content, but also for any Internet site or application your clients may have - if you have purchased the server with the intent to resell the disk space to third parties.
