An IP address is a unique number which identifies an Internet site or a server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed exclusively by your Internet sites and shall not be shared with other people as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. Provided you have your own hosting server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for a variety of uses. If you have an online store, for example, you will need an SSL certificate for it, to make certain that the payment info that your customers submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some sort and you want the usernames and the passwords that visitors input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which ought to be different from the one that you already have on the web server. You may also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better performance for a given website, which will influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Hosting

If you decide to buy one of our Linux VPS hosting packages, we'll give you one dedicated IP address by default and a second one free of charge - in case you add any one of the hosting Control Panels which we offer to your order. Additional IPs may be purchased easily in case you need them. The option is provided on the order page, so in case you require more IPs right away, we'll able to assign them to your VPS whenever it's put in place and you can use them as soon as you begin using the server. If you need them for any reason later on, you can order them from the billing area and they will be available in a few minutes. That way, you can assign dedicated IP addresses not just to your own Internet sites, but also to customers' websites in case you've launched a reseller business. You'll be able to order IPs as frequently as required and renew them along with your virtual hosting server plan. If, sooner or later, you need less IPs, you'll have the opportunity to renew only those that you require, while the extra ones will be taken off your hosting server.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages which we offer feature 3 IP addresses by default and you could use them in whatever way you see fit. If you need additional IPs for any reason, you can add them to your hosting server with just a few clicks without any restrictions as to their number or to the length of time for which you shall be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in the event that you need the IPs right from the start, you can add them to the package deal during the signup procedure, while in the event that it turns out that you require more IPs at some point afterwards, you could order them just as simply via your billing area and we shall assign them to your dedicated server a few minutes later. The dedicated IPs may be renewed with the web server plan on a monthly basis and you can choose if you'll renew all of them or simply a few - in case you no longer need that many. You'll be able to use the IPs both for your own sites and for client hosting accounts - provided you're using the dedicated server as an Internet hosting reseller platform.
