An IP address is a unique number that identifies a site or a server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used exclusively by your websites and will not be shared with others as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. In case you have your own hosting server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for various purposes. If you have an electronic 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 protected. The same is valid if you have a login form of some type and you would like the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which should be different from the one which you already have on the hosting server. You could also need an independent IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better overall performance for a certain Internet site, which shall affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

If you choose to buy one of our VPS servers, we'll provide you with one dedicated IP address by default and a second one at no extra cost - if you add any one of the hosting Control Panels we offer to your order. Some other IPs could be purchased easily in case you need them. The option is available on the order page, so if you require more IPs right away, we'll able to assign them to your VPS the minute it's set up and you can use them the moment you start using the server. If you need them for any reason later, you can order them through the billing area and they'll be available within a couple of minutes. That way, you can assign dedicated IP addresses not only to your own sites, but also to customers' websites provided you've started a reseller enterprise. You'll be able to order IPs as frequently as required and renew them together with your virtual server plan. If, sooner or later, you need less IPs, you'll have the chance to renew only those that you require, while the extra ones will be taken off your machine.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

If you obtain one of our dedicated server solutions, you'll receive 3 IP addresses at no additional charge and you'll be able to use them for any purpose. If you require more IPs, you can request them anytime through your billing area and we'll assign them to the web server a few moments later. You can also get additional IPs during the signup process and they shall be available on your server the minute it is ready 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 will use them, since you will be able to pick the number of IPs that you'll renew every month with your 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 your clients may have - if you have bought the hosting server with the intent to resell the disk space to third parties.
