An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes a site or a server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used only by your sites and won't be shared with others as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. In case you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for different purposes. If you have a web-based store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make sure that the payment information that your clients submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some sort and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which should be different from the one which you already have on the machine. You might also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better performance for a given site, which shall influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

Our Linux VPS servers come with one dedicated IP address by default. A second one is available too - if they are ordered with an Internet hosting CP. In case you require more IPs, however, you will be able to add them with ease, no matter the package that you've chosen. You are able to do this during the signup process in the event that you need them from the start or through your billing account - if you need them afterwards. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your web server right after that and you may start using them. You could renew the IPs together with the plan for as long as you want to use them. This upgrade is incredibly useful not only for your personal content, but also in the event that you would like to use the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business, considering that you shall be able to supply a dedicated IP to every client who wants to use one. There's no restriction on the amount of addresses you can order or on how often you may do that.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

All Linux dedicated servers which we offer come with three IP addresses by default and you'll be able to use them in any way you see fit. In the event that you require more IPs for any reason, you'll be able to add them to your web server with a couple of clicks without limitations as to their number or the period for which you'll be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and if you require the IPs right away, you can add them to the package during the signup procedure, while if it turns out that you require more IPs at some point later, you may order them just as quickly through your billing area and we shall assign them to your dedicated server a few moments later. The dedicated IPs could be renewed with the web server plan on a monthly basis and you could choose if you shall renew all of them or only a few - in case you no longer require that many. You could use the IPs both for your own websites and for client hosting accounts - if you're using the dedicated server as a hosting reseller platform.
