An IP address is a unique number that identifies an Internet site or a web server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed just by your websites and won't be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared hosting accounts. If you have your own web server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for a variety of purposes. In case you have an Internet store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, so as to ensure that the payment info which your clients submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some sort and you wish the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which needs to be different from the one that you already have on the hosting server. You might also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better functionality for a given site, which shall affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS

Every VPS service we provide includes one dedicated IP address and if you add a hosting Control Panel to it, we'll give you a second one at no additional cost, so that you can use it as you see fit. If you would like to use more IPs, you'll be able to order them with no more than two clicks at any time, since you'll locate this sort of an option both on our order page and within your billing Control Panel. In the first case, the dedicated addresses shall be available as soon as the virtual server is prepared, while in the second - a few minutes after you order them. You could renew the IPs together with your VPS plan and use them for as long as you desire. They can come in handy not just for your own websites, but also for the Internet sites of any clients which you might have if you're using the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business. There isn't any limit on how often you'll be able to order additional IPs or on the number of of them you could use with your machine at any time.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting

All Linux dedicated hosting services which we offer feature three IP addresses by default and you can use them in any way you see fit. In the event that you require more IPs for any reason, you could add them to your server with several clicks with no restrictions as to their number or to the duration for which you'll be able to employ them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in the event that you need the IPs straight away, you'll be able to add them to the package during the signup process, while if it turns out that you need more IPs at some point later, you may order them just as simply from your billing area and we'll assign them to your dedicated server a few moments later. The dedicated IPs can be renewed together with the hosting server plan on a monthly basis and you could determine if you'll renew all of them or just a few - if you no longer require that many. You could use the IPs both for your own websites and for client hosting accounts - when you're using the dedicated server as an Internet hosting reseller platform.
