An IP address is a unique number which separates an Internet site or a hosting server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it will be used solely by your sites and will not be shared with others as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. Provided you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for a variety of purposes. Provided you have a web-based store, for example, you will need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment info your clients submit will be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some kind and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which should be different from the one which you already have on the machine. You may also need a separate IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better overall performance for a certain site, which may affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Hosting

Our Linux VPS hosting services feature one dedicated IP address by default. A second one is available also - if they are ordered with a hosting CP. In case you need more IPs, however, you will be able to add them easily, whatever the package which you have chosen. You could do this during the signup process in the event that you need them from the very beginning or through your billing account - if you need them afterwards. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your hosting server soon after that and you may begin using them. You'll be able to renew the IPs along 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 want to use the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business, considering the fact that you'll be able to supply a dedicated IP to every customer who would want to use one. There isn't any restriction on the amount of addresses you may order or on how often you may do that.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting

We give three free dedicated IP addresses with every single dedicated server we offer, but in case you need more, you'll be able to order them easily and they will be assigned to your server at once. The upgrade can be purchased both on our order page and in the billing CP, so you could get additional IPs whenever you need them - in the beginning or at any time later. You can order the upgrade in increments of three and add as many IP addresses as you want at any given time. You may renew just the IPs that you want together with the web hosting plan, so if, at one point, you need less IPs, you can simply renew those which you need and the other ones will be removed from your web server. With our upgrade, you'll be able to use a dedicated address not just for your sites and applications, but also for your clients’ Internet sites and applications - in case you're using the machine to run a hosting reseller business. Any IP on top of the default 3 IPs can be employed for so long as you require it.
