An IP address is a unique number which separates an Internet site or a server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed solely by your sites and shall not be shared with other people as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. Provided you have your own hosting server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for various uses. If you have an online store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make certain that the payment info which your clients submit will be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some type and you want the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which should be different from the one which you already have on the machine. You may also need an individual IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better functionality for a particular Internet site, which shall affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
If you opt for one of the VPS servers plans we offer, you shall get one dedicated IP address, and with any server that is ordered with a CP, we supply a second one 100 % free. If you would like to use additional IPs, you are able to add them to your package deal with a few clicks at any time. In case you need them immediately, for example, you can add them to your order and they will be assigned to your VPS the instant it's set up. If you need them later, you can add them through your billing CP and they will be available within a couple of minutes. You'll be able to assign them to personal Internet sites with a couple of mouse clicks or to any of your customers - if you're using the virtual server to start your own web hosting firm. You can take full advantage of this upgrade as often as you wish and you'll be able to renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for so long as required.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
When you obtain one of our dedicated server plans, you will get 3 IP addresses at no additional charge and you'll be able to use them for any purpose. If you require even more IPs, you could request them whenever you want from your billing area and we'll assign them to the hosting server a couple of minutes later. You may even get additional IPs during the signup process and they will be available on your web server as soon as it's all set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of 3 and you may choose how many addresses you'll order and how long you'll use them, as you can choose the number of IPs that you will renew every month with your web server plan. Any IP address which is assigned to your dedicated server could be used not only for your personal content, but also for any Internet site or application that your customers may have - if you have purchased the hosting server with the intention to resell the disk space to third parties.
