An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes an Internet site or a hosting server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be used exclusively by your Internet sites and shall not be shared with others as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. If you have your own web server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for various uses. In case you have a web-based store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, so as to ensure that the payment information your customers submit shall be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some sort and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter 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 functionality for a particular website, which shall affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Hosting

If you order one of our Linux VPS hosting services, we will supply you with one dedicated IP address by default and a second one absolutely free - in case you add any of the hosting Control Panels that we offer to your order. More IPs can be purchased effortlessly if you need them. The option is available on the order page, so if you need more IPs from the beginning, we can assign them to your VPS the minute it is set up and you can use them the instant you begin using the machine. If you need them for any reason later, you can order them via the billing area and they will be available in a couple of minutes. Thus, you'll be able to assign dedicated IP addresses not just to your own Internet sites, but also to clients' sites in case you've started out a reseller enterprise. You could order IPs as often as required and renew them together with your virtual web server plan. If, eventually, you need less IPs, you will have the opportunity to renew only those that you need, while the extra ones will be removed from your machine.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting

Each dedicated server which we offer comes with 3 dedicated IP addresses provided free of charge on top of the monthly fee for the package. We also supply you with the opportunity to add more IPs to your hosting server both when you sign up and at a later time via your billing Control Panel, so you can order the IPs whenever you need them with no restriction on the number or on how often you get them. They could be purchased in groups of 3 and shall be assigned to your web server immediately. You'll be able to renew them with the Internet hosting plan and you can decide if you'll renew all of them, or a smaller number - if you no longer require the rest. Each dedicated IP address assigned to your server can be used for any purpose: for a personal site, for a software web server, or for a hosting customer - in case you've decided to start off your own Internet hosting business and you're reselling accounts to other people.
