An IP address is a unique number that separates a website or a web server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be used only by your websites and shall not be shared with others as it happens with shared hosting accounts. In case you have your own hosting server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for various purposes. In case you have an electronic store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make certain that the payment information 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 enter to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which has to be different from the one that you already have on the server. You may also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better overall performance for a certain website, which may influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

If you decide to buy one of our Linux VPS servers, we'll give you one dedicated IP address by default and a second one absolutely free - in case you add any one of the hosting Control Panels we offer to your order. Some other IPs can be purchased with ease if you need them. The option is available on the order page, so in case you require more IPs from the beginning, we'll able to assign them to your VPS the instant it is set up and you can use them the instant you begin using the machine. If you require them for any reason later, you can order them via the billing area and they will be available in a matter of minutes. This way, you can assign dedicated IP addresses not only to your own websites, but also to clients' sites if you've started a reseller business. You'll be able to order IPs as often as needed and renew them together with your virtual web server plan. If, sooner or later, you require less IPs, you will have the opportunity to renew only those that you need, while the extra ones will be taken off your hosting server.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

All Linux dedicated servers we offer feature three IP addresses by default and you may use them in any way you see fit. In the event that you require more IPs for any reason, you can add them to your hosting server with a few mouse clicks with no limits as to their number or to the duration for which you'll be able to employ them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in the event that you require the IPs right from the start, you'll be able to add them to the package deal during the signup process, while in the event that it turns out that you require more IPs at some point later, you may order them just as quickly using your billing area and we shall assign them to your dedicated server a few moments later. The dedicated IPs could be renewed with the hosting server plan on a monthly basis and you could determine if you'll renew all of them or simply a few - in the event that you no longer require that many. You may use the IPs both for your own Internet sites and for customer hosting accounts - provided you're using the dedicated server as a hosting reseller platform.
