An IP address is a unique number that separates an Internet site or a hosting server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used exclusively by your sites and shall not be shared with others as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. If you have your own server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for many different purposes. In case you have an electronic store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, to ensure that the payment info that your clients submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some kind and you want the usernames and the passwords that visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which has to be different from the one which you already have on the server. You might also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better overall performance for a given website, which shall affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

If you select one of the VPS servers packages which we provide, you'll get 1 dedicated IP address, and with every server which is ordered with a Control Panel, we give a second one totally free. If you would like to use additional IPs, you may add them to your package with only a couple of clicks whenever you want. In case you require them at once, for instance, you could add them to your order and they'll be assigned to your VPS as soon as it is set up. In the event that you need them later, you may add them using your billing Control Panel and they shall be available within a matter of minutes. You may assign them to personal Internet sites with a few clicks or to any of your customers - if you're using the virtual server to start your own Internet hosting business. You'll be able to take full advantage of this upgrade as often as you wish and you can renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for so long as desired.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

If you acquire one of our dedicated server plans, you will get three IP addresses at no additional charge and you can use them for any purpose. If you need more IPs, you'll be able to request them whenever you want from your billing area and we'll assign them to the server a few minutes later. You can also get additional IPs during the signup procedure and they will be available on your hosting server the minute it is set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you can choose how many addresses you will order and how long you will use them, since you will be able to select the number of IPs which you will renew each month with your web server plan. Any IP address which is assigned to your dedicated server may be used not just for your personal content, but also for any Internet site or app which your clients may have - if you have obtained the web server with the purpose to resell the disk space to third parties.
