An IP address is a unique number that identifies a site or a web server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used only by your Internet sites and shall not be shared with other people as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. In case you have your own server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for different uses. Provided you have an Internet store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make certain that the payment info your clients submit shall be encrypted and protected. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which needs to be different from the one which you already have on the machine. You might also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better overall performance for a certain site, which will influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

If you choose to buy one of our VPS servers, we will provide you with one dedicated IP address by default and a second one free of charge - in the event that you add any of the hosting Control Panels which we offer to your order. Extra IPs can be purchased with ease in the event that you require them. The option is available on the order page, so if you need more IPs from the beginning, we can assign them to your VPS the instant it is put in place and you can use them as soon as you start using the server. If you need them for any reason afterwards, you can order them through the billing area and they will be available in a matter of minutes. This way, you shall be able to assign dedicated IP addresses not just to your own sites, but also to clients' sites provided you have started out a reseller business. You could order IPs as often as required and renew them along with your virtual server plan. If, sooner or later, you require less IPs, you shall have the opportunity to renew only those which you require, while the extra ones shall be taken off your server.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

In case you get one of our dedicated server solutions, you'll get 3 IP addresses at no additional charge and you'll be able to use them for any purpose. If you need additional IPs, you'll be able to request them at any time via your billing area and we will assign them to the web server a couple of minutes later. You may even get additional IPs during the signup procedure and they shall be available on your machine the minute it is 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'll order and how long you shall use them, since you could select the number of IPs which you'll renew on a monthly basis with your web server plan. Any IP address that is assigned to your dedicated server could be used not just for your personal content, but for any Internet site or app your customers may have - if you have purchased the machine with the purpose to resell the disk space to third parties.
