An IP address is a unique number that identifies a website or a web server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed exclusively by your sites and won't be shared with others as it happens with shared hosting accounts. If you have your own web server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for a variety of uses. If you have an electronic store, for example, you will need an SSL certificate for it, so as to ensure that the payment info that your clients submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid if you have a login form of some type and you wish the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which has to be different from the one that you already have on the web server. You could also need an individual IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better functionality for a certain website, which may influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

If you decide to order one of our Linux VPS web hosting plans, we will provide you with one dedicated IP address by default and a second one totally free - if you add any one of the hosting Control Panels which we offer to your order. More IPs may be purchased effortlessly in the event that you require 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's put in place and you can use them the moment you begin using the web server. If you require them for any reason later, you can order them via the billing area and they'll be available in a few minutes. Thus, you'll be able to assign dedicated IP addresses not only to your own websites, but also to clients' websites in case you've started a reseller business. You could order IPs as frequently as needed and renew them together with your virtual hosting server plan. If, at some point, you need less IPs, you shall have the opportunity to renew just those that you require, while the extra ones will be removed from your machine.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

All Linux dedicated web hosting plans which we offer come with three IP addresses by default and you could use them in whatever way you see fit. If you need more IPs for any reason, you'll be able to add them to your server with several mouse clicks without any limitations as to their number or to the period for which you will be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in the event that you need the IPs straight away, you'll be able to add them to the plan during the signup process, while in the event that it turns out that you need more IPs at some point afterwards, you can order them just as easily through your billing area and we will assign them to your dedicated server a few moments later. The dedicated IPs can be renewed along with the server plan on a monthly basis and you'll be able to determine if you'll renew all of them or just a few - in the event that you no longer require that many. You can use the IPs both for your own Internet sites and for client hosting accounts - when you're using the dedicated server as a hosting reseller platform.
