An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes a site or a server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed only by your Internet sites and will not be shared with other people as it happens with shared hosting accounts. In case you have your own server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for different purposes. If you have an electronic store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make certain that the payment info that your customers submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some type and you wish the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in 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 hosting server. You may also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better functionality for a given Internet site, which will affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

Every VPS server service that we supply includes one dedicated IP address and if you add a web hosting Control Panel to it, we shall give you a second one at no additional cost, so you can use it the way you see fit. If you would like to use more IPs, you will be able to order them with just a couple of clicks whenever you want, as you will locate such an option both on our order page and within your billing Control Panel. In the first case, the dedicated addresses will be available the minute the virtual server is prepared, while in the second - a few minutes after you order them. You can renew the IPs together with your VPS plan and use them for so long as you want. They can prove useful not only for your own Internet sites, but also for the Internet sites of any customers which you might have if you're using the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business. There isn't any restriction on how frequently you could order additional IPs or on the amount of of them you'll be able to use with your server at any moment.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

In case you get one of our dedicated server packages, you'll receive 3 IP addresses at no additional charge and you can use them for any purpose. If you need even more IPs, you'll be able to request them at any time from your billing area and we'll assign them to the server a couple of minutes later. You can also get more IPs during the signup process and they'll be available on your machine the moment it's ready and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you could choose how many addresses you will order and how long you shall use them, since you could choose the number of IPs which you'll renew each month with your server plan. Any IP address that is assigned to your dedicated server may be used not only for your personal content, but for any site or app your customers may have - if you have obtained the server with the intention to resell the disk space to third parties.
