An IP address is a unique number which separates a website or a server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be used only by your Internet sites and shall not be shared with others as it happens with shared hosting accounts. If you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for different uses. If you have an Internet store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment info your clients submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some sort and you wish the usernames and the passwords that visitors enter to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which needs to be different from the one which you already have on the hosting server. You may also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better functionality for a given site, which shall affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
If you choose to buy one of our VPS servers, we shall supply you with one dedicated IP address by default and a second one free of charge - if you add any one of the hosting Control Panels that we offer to your order. Extra IPs can be purchased easily in case you require them. The option is available on the order page, so if you require more IPs right away, we can assign them to your VPS as soon as it is put in place and you can use them as soon as you start using the server. If you require them for any reason later on, you can order them through the billing area and they shall be available within a couple of minutes. Thus, you'll be able to assign dedicated IP addresses not only to your own websites, but also to clients' sites if you have launched a reseller business. You'll be able to order IPs as often as needed and renew them together with your virtual hosting server plan. If, eventually, you require less IPs, you shall have the opportunity to renew just those that you require, while the extra ones will be removed from your web server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
Every single dedicated server we offer features 3 dedicated IP addresses provided at no extra cost on top of the monthly fee for the package. We also provide you with the opportunity to add more IPs to your server both when you sign up and at a later time using your billing CP, so you may order the IPs whenever you need them with no limitation on the number or on how frequently you get them. They may be purchased in groups of three and shall be assigned to your hosting server right away. You can renew them with the web hosting plan and you may choose if you'll renew all of them, or a smaller number - if you no longer need 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 have decided to launch your own web hosting firm and you're reselling accounts to other people.
