An IP address is a unique number that separates a site or a web server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used only by your websites and shall not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. If you have your own server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for a variety of uses. In case you have an online store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make certain that the payment info your customers submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some sort and you would like 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 hosting server. You may also need an independent IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better efficiency for a certain website, which will influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting

Our Linux VPS web hosting packages include one dedicated IP address by default. A second one is available also - when they are ordered with a web hosting CP. If you need more IPs, however, you'll be able to add them effortlessly, no matter the plan that you have selected. You are able to do this during the signup process in the event that you need them from the very beginning or via your billing account - if you need them afterwards. The dedicated IPs will be assigned to your server right after that and you'll be able to start using them. You may renew the IPs together with the plan for so long as you plan to use them. This upgrade is incredibly useful not simply for your personal content, but also when you wish to use the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business, because you will be able to supply a dedicated IP to every client who wants to use one. There isn't a restriction on how many addresses you'll be able to order or on how many times you may do that.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you acquire one of our dedicated server plans, you will get three IP addresses at no additional charge and you can use them for any purpose. If you require more IPs, you'll be able to request them whenever you want via your billing area and we will assign them to the web server a couple of minutes later. You can even get additional IPs during the signup procedure and they will be available on your server the moment it is all set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of 3 and you'll be able to select how many addresses you will order and how long you shall use them, since you can select the number of IPs that you'll renew on a monthly basis with your hosting server plan. Any IP address that is assigned to your dedicated server can be used not just for your personal content, but also for any Internet site or app which your clients may have - if you have purchased the machine with the aim to resell the disk space to third parties.
