An IP address is a unique number which separates an Internet site or a hosting server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used just by your websites and will not be shared with others as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. Provided you have your own web server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for many different uses. In case you have an online store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make sure that the payment information which 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 input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which has to be different from the one which you already have on the web server. You may also need an individual IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better performance for a given Internet site, which will influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

If you buy one of our VPS web hosting plans, we shall provide you with 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 that we offer to your order. Some other IPs may be purchased with ease if you require them. The option is offered on the order page, so if you need more IPs right away, we'll able to assign them to your VPS whenever it is set up and you can use them the minute you start using the hosting server. If you require them for any reason afterwards, you can order them from 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 websites, but also to customers' sites in case you have started out a reseller enterprise. You can order IPs as often as needed and renew them together with your virtual server plan. If, eventually, you require less IPs, you shall have the opportunity to renew only those which you require, while the extra ones will be removed from your server.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

Every single dedicated server we offer includes three dedicated IP addresses supplied at no extra cost on top of the monthly fee for the plan. We also offer the chance to add more IPs to your hosting server both when you sign up and at a later time using your billing CP, so you can order the IPs whenever you require them without a limit on the amount or on how often you get them. They can be purchased in groups of three and shall be assigned to your web server instantly. You may renew them with the hosting plan and you can decide if you will renew all of them, or a smaller number - in the event that you no longer need the rest. Any dedicated IP address allotted to your server may be used for any purpose: for a personal website, for a software web server, or for a hosting customer - in the event that you've decided to start your own web hosting firm and you are reselling accounts to other people.
