An IP address is a unique number which identifies an Internet site or a web server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed exclusively by your sites and will not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. In case you have your own hosting server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for different purposes. If you have an Internet store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make sure that the payment info your clients submit will be encrypted and safe. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you would like the usernames and the passwords that visitors enter to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which should be different from the one which you already have on the hosting server. You may also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better efficiency for a certain site, which shall affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
If you select one of the VPS servers solutions that we provide, you shall get one dedicated IP address, and with every server that is ordered with a Control Panel, we provide a second one totally free. If you'd like to use additional IPs, you'll be able to add them to your plan with a couple of clicks anytime. If you need them right away, for example, you are able to add them to your order and they will be assigned to your VPS the instant it's set up. In the event that you need them later, you may add them using your billing CP and they shall be available within a few minutes. You could assign them to personal websites with several clicks or to any of your customers - if you are using the virtual server to start your own web hosting business. You'll be able to benefit from this upgrade as often as you like and you could renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for so long as desired.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
When you acquire one of our dedicated server packages, you will get 3 IP addresses at no additional charge and you'll be able to use them for any purpose. If you require more IPs, you could request them at any time through your billing area and we will assign them to the server a couple of minutes later. You can also get more IPs during the signup procedure and they'll be available on your hosting server the moment it's 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'll use them, since you will be able to pick the number of IPs that you will renew each month with your hosting server plan. Any IP address that's assigned to your dedicated server can be used not just for your personal content, but also for any site or application your customers may have - if you have bought the hosting server with the goal to resell the disk space to third parties.
