An IP address is a unique number which separates a site or a web server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used only by your websites and won't be shared with others as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. Provided you have your own hosting server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for various uses. Provided you have an online store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, in order to ensure that the payment information which your clients submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you want the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which ought to be different from the one which you already have on the web server. You may also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better performance for a particular website, which will influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

Each VPS server plan that we offer comes with 1 dedicated IP address and if you add a web hosting CP to it, we'll provide you with a second one at no additional cost, so that you can use it the way you see fit. If you would like to use more IPs, you shall be able to order them with only two mouse clicks whenever you want, since you will find this sort of an option both on our order page and in your billing CP. In the first case, the dedicated addresses will be available the minute the virtual server is ready, while in the second - a few minutes after you purchase them. You can renew the IPs together with your VPS plan and use them for so long as you need. They can come in handy not only for your own Internet sites, but also for the websites of any clients which you may have in the event that you're using the virtual server to run a web hosting reseller business. There is no limit on how many times you'll be able to order additional IPs or on how many of them you'll be able to use with your server at any moment.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

In case you obtain one of our dedicated server packages, you'll get three IP addresses at no additional charge and you'll be able to use them for any purpose. If you need more IPs, you'll be able to request them whenever you want from your billing area and we'll assign them to the hosting server a few minutes later. You may even get additional IPs during the signup process and they'll 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 choose how many addresses you will order and how long you shall use them, as you can choose the number of IPs which you will renew every month with your hosting server plan. Any IP address that's assigned to your dedicated server can be used not only for your personal content, but also for any Internet site or application that your customers may have - if you have bought the web server with the intent to resell the disk space to third parties.
