An IP address is a unique number that separates a website or a web server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed exclusively by your Internet sites and won't be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. If you have your own web server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for various purposes. In case you have an electronic store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, so as to ensure that the payment info which your customers submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some kind and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which needs to be different from the one which you already have on the hosting server. You might also need an independent IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better overall performance for a given Internet site, which may influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Hosting

If you choose to purchase one of our Linux VPS hosting, we shall supply you with one dedicated IP address by default and a second one 100 % free - in case you add any of the hosting Control Panels we offer to your order. Extra IPs could be purchased effortlessly in the event that you require them. The option is offered on the order page, so in case you need more IPs from the start, we shall be able to assign them to your VPS the moment it's put in place and you can use them the second you begin using the hosting server. If you need them for any reason later, you can order them from the billing area and they'll be available within a matter of minutes. This way, you'll be able to assign dedicated IP addresses not just to your own sites, but also to clients' sites if you have started a reseller business. You'll be able to order IPs as often as required and renew them together with your virtual hosting server plan. If, sooner or later, you require less IPs, you'll have the opportunity to renew just those that you require, while the extra ones shall be removed from your web server.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting

Each and every dedicated server that we offer features 3 dedicated IP addresses supplied at no extra cost on top of the monthly fee for the package deal. We also offer the chance to add more IPs to your web server both when you sign up and at a later time through your billing Control Panel, so you'll be able to order the IPs whenever you need them without a limitation on the amount or on how often you get them. They can be purchased in groups of three and will be assigned to your server immediately. You can renew them with the hosting plan and you'll be able to decide if you'll renew all of them, or a smaller amount - in the event that you no longer require the rest. Each dedicated IP address allotted to your server could be used for any purpose: for a personal Internet site, for a software hosting server, or for a hosting customer - in case you've decided to start your own web hosting enterprise and you are reselling accounts to other people.
