An IP address is a unique number that separates a site or a server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be used exclusively by your sites and shall not be shared with other people as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. Provided you have your own server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for various uses. If you have a web-based store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, to make certain that the payment info which your customers submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some sort and you want the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which has to be different from the one which you already have on the web server. You could also need a separate IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better efficiency for a given site, which will affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

If you decide to purchase one of our Linux VPS servers, we'll give you one dedicated IP address by default and a second one at no extra cost - in the event that you add any one of the hosting Control Panels that we offer to your order. More IPs may be purchased easily if you require them. The option is available on the order page, so in the event that you need more IPs right away, we'll able to assign them to your VPS whenever it is set up and you can use them the second you start using the machine. If you need them for any reason later, you can order them through the billing area and they'll be available in a couple of minutes. That way, you shall be able to assign dedicated IP addresses not only to your own websites, but also to clients' websites provided you've started a reseller enterprise. You could order IPs as frequently as needed and renew them together with your virtual hosting server plan. If, eventually, you require less IPs, you'll have the chance to renew only those that you require, while the extra ones will be removed from your machine.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated servers that we offer include 3 IP addresses by default and you may use them in any way you see fit. In the event that you require even more IPs for any reason, you may add them to your server with a few mouse clicks with no limitations as to their number or to the length of time for which you shall be able to employ them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in case you need the IPs right away, you'll be able to 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 may order them just as easily through your billing area and we will assign them to your dedicated server a few moments later. The dedicated IPs could be renewed along with the server plan on a monthly basis and you'll be able to determine if you will renew all of them or just a few - in case you no longer require that many. You can use the IPs both for your own sites and for customer hosting accounts - if you are using the dedicated server as a hosting reseller platform.
