An IP address is a unique number that identifies a website or a server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be used just by your Internet sites and will not be shared with other people as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. Provided you have your own server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for different uses. If you have a web-based store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, so as to ensure that the payment info your customers submit will be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some type and you would like the usernames and the passwords that visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which ought to be different from the one that you already have on the server. You may also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better efficiency for a certain website, which will influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

Our VPS hosting plans come with one dedicated IP address by default. An additional one is available too - in case they are ordered with a hosting CP. In the event that you require more IPs, however, you'll be able to incorporate them effortlessly, no matter the plan which you have chosen. You could do this during the signup procedure in case you need them from the very beginning or through your billing account - if you need them afterwards. The dedicated IPs will be assigned to your web server shortly after that and you can start using them. You could renew the IPs together with the plan for so long as you plan to use them. This upgrade is extremely useful not simply for your personal content, but also in case you intend to use the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business, because you shall be able to provide a dedicated IP to any client who would like to use one. There isn't any restriction on the amount of addresses you may order or on how often you'll be able to do that.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

All Linux dedicated web hosting plans we offer feature three IP addresses by default and you'll be able to use them in whatever way you see fit. If you need additional IPs for any reason, you could add them to your server with several mouse clicks without limitations as to their number or to the length of time for which you'll be able to employ them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in case you require 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 need more IPs at some point later on, you could order them just as quickly through your billing area and we will assign them to your dedicated server a couple of minutes later. The dedicated IPs may be renewed with the web server plan on a monthly basis and you'll be able to determine if you shall renew all of them or only a few - in the event that you no longer need that many. You may use the IPs both for your own Internet sites and for customer hosting accounts - if you're using the dedicated server as a web hosting reseller platform.
