An IP address is a unique number which identifies a website or a server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed exclusively by your Internet sites and shall not be shared with others as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. In case you have your own hosting server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for different uses. Provided you have an online store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment information that your customers submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid if you have a login form of some type and you wish the usernames and the passwords which visitors input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which ought to be different from the one which you already have on the machine. You may also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better overall performance for a particular website, which may influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting

Our VPS web hosting feature one dedicated IP address by default. An additional one is available as well - when they are ordered with an Internet hosting Control Panel. In case you need more IPs, however, you'll be able to include them effortlessly, regardless of the plan that you've chosen. You could do this during the signup process if you need them from the beginning or via your billing account - in case you need them afterwards. The dedicated IPs will be assigned to your hosting server shortly after that and you can begin using them. You may renew the IPs together with the plan for so long as you want to use them. This upgrade is very useful not only for your personal content, but also in case you would like to use the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business, because you'll be able to offer a dedicated IP to every client who would want to use one. There isn't a restriction on the amount of addresses you can order or on how many times you may do that.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you get one of our dedicated server plans, you will get three IP addresses at no additional charge and you could use them for any purpose. If you need even more IPs, you could request them anytime through your billing area and we will assign them to the web server a couple of minutes later. You may also get additional IPs during the signup process and they'll be available on your hosting server as soon as it is all set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you may pick how many addresses you will order and how long you will use them, since you could pick the number of IPs that you'll renew every month with your hosting 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 bought the hosting server with the intent to resell the disk space to third parties.
