An IP address is a unique number that separates an Internet site or a server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used only by your Internet sites and will not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. Provided you have your own hosting server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for various purposes. If you have an Internet store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make sure that the payment info your customers submit shall be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some type and you wish the usernames and the passwords that visitors enter to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which should be different from the one which you already have on the hosting server. You could also need a separate IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better overall performance for a given website, which shall affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS

If you choose to purchase one of our Linux VPS services, we'll give you one dedicated IP address by default and a second one free of charge - in the event that you add any of the hosting Control Panels we offer to your order. Additional IPs could be purchased effortlessly in the event that you need them. The option is provided on the order page, so in the event that you require more IPs right away, we shall be able to assign them to your VPS whenever it is put in place and you can use them the moment you begin using the server. If you require them for any reason afterwards, you can order them via the billing area and they will be available within a couple of minutes. This way, you shall be able to assign dedicated IP addresses not only to your own websites, but also to clients' websites if you've started a reseller business. You'll be able to order IPs as frequently as needed and renew them along with your virtual web server plan. If, eventually, you need less IPs, you'll have the chance to renew only those that you require, while the extra ones shall be taken off your hosting server.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting

Each dedicated server we offer includes three dedicated IP addresses provided totally free on top of the monthly fee for the plan. We also provide you with the chance to add more IPs to your web server both when you sign up and at a later time through your billing Control Panel, so you could order the IPs whenever you require them without a restriction on the amount or on how often you get them. They can be purchased in groups of 3 and shall be assigned to your hosting server immediately. You'll be able to renew them with the web hosting plan and you may decide if you will renew all of them, or a smaller number - in case you no longer need the rest. Each dedicated IP address assigned to your server may be used for any purpose: for a personal Internet site, for a software hosting server, or for a hosting client - in case you've decided to launch your own Internet hosting firm and you're reselling accounts to other people.
