An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes an Internet site or a server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed only by your sites and won't be shared with others as it happens with shared hosting accounts. If you have your own hosting server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for a variety of purposes. If you have a web-based store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make certain that the payment info that your clients submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid if you have a login form of some sort and you want the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which has to be different from the one that you already have on the machine. You might also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better performance for a certain Internet site, which may affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

If you select one of the VPS servers plans that we offer, you'll get one dedicated IP address, and with every server which is ordered with a CP, we provide a second one free of charge. If you want to use additional IPs, you are able to add them to your package with several mouse clicks at any time. In the event that you need them at once, for instance, you'll be able to add them to your order and they shall be assigned to your VPS as soon as it is set up. In case you need them later, you could add them via your billing CP and they'll be available within a matter of minutes. You'll be able to assign them to personal websites with several mouse clicks or to any of your customers - if you are using the virtual server to launch your own web hosting company. You could benefit from this upgrade as often as you wish and you may renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for so long as required.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

All Linux dedicated web hosting plans which we offer come with 3 IP addresses by default and you may use them in any way you see fit. If you require more IPs for any reason, you'll be able to add them to your server with just a few clicks with no limits as to their number or the duration for which you will be able to employ them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and if you require the IPs straight away, you may add them to the plan during the signup process, while in case it turns out that you require more IPs at some point afterwards, you can order them just as quickly through your billing area and we will assign them to your dedicated server several minutes later. The dedicated IPs may be renewed together with the 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 websites and for customer hosting accounts - when you are using the dedicated server as a hosting reseller platform.
