An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes an Internet site or a server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed just by your sites and won't be shared with other people as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. Provided you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for a variety of uses. Provided you have an Internet store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make sure that the payment info which your customers submit will be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some kind and you want the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which has to be different from the one that you already have on the machine. You might also need an individual IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better efficiency for a given site, which may affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Hosting

Our Linux VPS hosting packages provide one dedicated IP address by default. An additional one is available too - when they are ordered with an Internet hosting CP. If you require more IPs, however, you'll be able to add them effortlessly, regardless of the plan that you have selected. You may do this during the signup procedure in case you need them from the very beginning or via your billing account - in case you need them later on. The dedicated IPs will be assigned to your server soon after that and you could begin using them. You'll be able to renew the IPs along with the plan for so long as you plan to use them. This upgrade is very useful not only for your personal content, but also when you intend to use the virtual server to run a web hosting reseller business, considering the fact that you'll be able to offer a dedicated IP to any client who wants to use one. There isn't any restriction on the number of addresses you can order or on how many times you can do that.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you acquire one of our dedicated server plans, you'll get 3 IP addresses at no additional charge and you can use them for any purpose. If you require more IPs, you may request them whenever you want from your billing area and we will assign them to the web server a couple of minutes later. You may also get additional IPs during the signup procedure and they'll be available on your web server the minute it is set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of 3 and you can pick how many addresses you will order and how long you'll use them, as you will be able to pick the number of IPs that you'll renew each month with your hosting server plan. Any IP address that's assigned to your dedicated server could be used not only for your personal content, but also for any website or app your customers may have - if you have purchased the server with the goal to resell the disk space to third parties.
