An IP address is a unique number that identifies a site or a server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed just by your websites and won't be shared with other people as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. Provided you have your own hosting server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for a variety of purposes. If you have a web-based store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make sure that the payment info which your customers submit will be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some kind and you wish the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which should be different from the one that you already have on the machine. You may also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better efficiency for a certain website, which shall influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
If you choose to purchase one of our Linux VPS servers, we shall provide you with one dedicated IP address by default and a second one totally free - if you add any of the hosting Control Panels which we offer to your order. Extra IPs could be purchased easily in the event that you require them. The option is provided on the order page, so if you require more IPs from the start, we can assign them to your VPS the moment it's set up and you can use them the moment you start using the server. If you need them for any reason later, you can order them via the billing area and they will be available in a few minutes. That way, you shall be able to assign dedicated IP addresses not only to your own Internet sites, but also to customers' websites if you've started a reseller enterprise. You could order IPs as frequently as needed and renew them along with your virtual hosting server plan. If, at some point, you require less IPs, you shall have the opportunity to renew only those that you need, while the extra ones shall be removed from your web server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated service which we offer feature three IP addresses by default and you could use them in any way you see fit. In the event that you need more IPs for any reason, you'll be able to add them to your hosting server with several mouse clicks without restrictions as to their number or to the period for which you will be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and if you need the IPs right 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 later on, you could order them just as quickly using your billing area and we'll assign them to your dedicated server several minutes later. The dedicated IPs could be renewed together with the hosting server plan on a monthly basis and you can determine if you shall renew all of them or only a few - in case you no longer require that many. You'll be able to use the IPs both for your own websites and for client hosting accounts - if you're using the dedicated server as an Internet hosting reseller platform.
