An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes a site or a hosting server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used solely by your sites and shall not be shared with other people as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. Provided you have your own web server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for various uses. If you have an electronic store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make sure that the payment information that your customers submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some sort and you want the usernames and the passwords that visitors input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which needs to be different from the one that 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 would like a slightly better efficiency for a given Internet site, which will affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS

If you purchase one of our Linux VPS packages, we shall give you one dedicated IP address by default and a second one absolutely free - in case you add any one of the hosting Control Panels which we offer to your order. Some other IPs could be purchased with ease in case you require them. The option is provided on the order page, so in case you require more IPs from the start, we'll able to assign them to your VPS the minute it is set up and you can use them the minute 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 within a matter of minutes. In this way, you'll be able to assign dedicated IP addresses not only to your own sites, but also to customers' websites if you have started a reseller business. You'll be able to order IPs as often as needed and renew them together with your virtual server plan. If, sooner or later, you require less IPs, you will have the chance to renew only those that you need, while the extra ones shall be taken off your hosting server.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting

We provide three totally free dedicated IP addresses with each and every dedicated server that we offer, but in the event that you require more, you can order them easily and they'll be assigned to your hosting server immediately. The upgrade can be purchased both on our order page and within the billing CP, so you'll be able to get additional IPs whenever you require them - in the beginning or anytime later. You'll be able to order the upgrade in increments of three and add as many IP addresses as you need at any given time. You can renew just the IPs which you want together with the website hosting plan, so if, at one point, you need less IPs, you may simply renew those you need and the other ones shall be removed from your server. With our upgrade, you'll be able to use a dedicated address not just for your sites and apps, but also for your clients’ sites and apps - in case you're using the machine to run a hosting reseller business. Any IP on top of the default 3 IPs may be employed for so long as you need it.
