An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes a website or a web server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used just by your websites and won't be shared with others as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. If you have your own server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for various uses. If you have an Internet store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment info that your customers submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some sort and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which should be different from the one which you already have on the server. You might also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better performance for a certain website, which shall influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
If you choose to buy one of our VPS hosting plans, we'll give you one dedicated IP address by default and a second one totally free - in case you add any of the hosting Control Panels which we offer to your order. Additional IPs can be purchased easily if you need them. The option is available on the order page, so if you require more IPs from the start, we'll able to assign them to your VPS whenever it is put in place and you can use them the minute you start using the machine. If you require them for any reason afterwards, you can order them via the billing area and they will be available in a matter of minutes. That way, you can assign dedicated IP addresses not only to your own Internet sites, but also to customers' websites in case you've started out a reseller business. You'll be able to order IPs as often as required and renew them together with your virtual server plan. If, at some point, you need less IPs, you shall have the opportunity to renew just those that you require, while the extra ones will be taken off your server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server that we offer comes with 3 dedicated IP addresses provided 100 % free on top of the monthly fee for the package. We also supply 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 could order the IPs whenever you need them with no limitation on the amount or on how often you get them. They can be purchased in groups of 3 and will be assigned to your server immediately. You'll be able to renew them with the Internet hosting plan and you'll be able to decide if you will renew all of them, or a smaller number - in case you no longer require the rest. Every dedicated IP address assigned to your hosting server could be used for any purpose: for a personal website, for a software web server, or for a hosting client - in the event that you've decided to start off your own web hosting business and you're reselling accounts to other people.
