An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes a website or a server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used solely by your sites and won't be shared with others as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. In case you have your own web server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for different purposes. If you have an Internet store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment information your customers submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some sort and you would like 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 which you already have on the hosting server. You might also need a separate IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better functionality for a certain site, which may influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

Our VPS servers come with one dedicated IP address by default. Another one is available also - if they are ordered with a hosting CP. In the event that you require more IPs, however, you'll be able to incorporate them with ease, no matter the plan that you've selected. You can do this during the signup process if you need them from the very beginning or using your billing account - if you need them later. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your web server soon after that and you could begin using them. You could renew the IPs along with the plan for as long as you want to use them. This upgrade is very useful not just for your personal content, but also if you wish to use the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business, because you'll be able to provide a dedicated IP to any client who wants to use one. There's no restriction on how many addresses you could order or on how often you could do that.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

In case you acquire one of our dedicated server solutions, you'll receive three IP addresses at no additional charge and you can use them for any purpose. If you need additional IPs, you could request them anytime from your billing area and we shall assign them to the web server a few moments later. You can also get more IPs during the signup process and they will be available on your hosting server the moment it's ready and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you could select how many addresses you'll order and how long you shall use them, since you could pick the number of IPs which you will renew each month with your hosting server plan. Any IP address that is assigned to your dedicated server could be used not just for your personal content, but for any website or app your clients may have - if you have bought the machine with the intention to resell the disk space to third parties.
