An IP address is a unique number that separates a site or a server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be used just by your Internet sites and will not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. In case you have your own server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for a variety of uses. Provided you have a web-based store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, in order to ensure that the payment info your customers submit will be encrypted and secure. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you wish the usernames and the passwords that visitors input to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which needs to be different from the one that you already have on the server. You may also need an independent IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better overall performance for a given website, which will affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Every single VPS server plan we offer features one dedicated IP address and if you add a hosting CP to it, we shall give you 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'll be able to order them with just a couple of mouse clicks at any time, since you will locate this sort of an option both on our order page and within your billing CP. In the first case, the dedicated addresses shall be available the moment the virtual server is ready, while in the second - a couple of minutes after you buy them. You can renew the IPs together with your VPS plan and use them for as long as you desire. They can be useful not only for your own websites, but also for the Internet sites of any customers which you may have in the event that you are using the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business. There's no restriction on how many times you can order additional IPs or on how many of them you'll be able to use with your machine at any moment.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
We provide three totally free dedicated IP addresses with each dedicated server we offer, but in case you need more, you'll be able to order them without difficulty and they will be assigned to your web server immediately. The upgrade is available both on our order page and inside the billing CP, so you can get additional IPs whenever you require them - in the very beginning or anytime later on. You'll be able to order the upgrade in increments of three and include as many IP addresses as you want at any given time. You can renew just the IPs that you want along with the web hosting plan, so if, eventually, you need less IPs, you could simply renew those that you need and the other ones shall be removed from your hosting server. With our upgrade, you'll be able to use a dedicated address not only for your websites and applications, but also for your clients’ websites and applications - if you're using the machine to run an Internet hosting reseller company. Any IP on top of the default three IPs may be used for as long as you require it.
