An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes an Internet site or a web server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed exclusively by your sites and will not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. If you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for a variety of uses. If you have an electronic store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, to make certain that the payment info your customers submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some kind and you want the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which has to be different from the one that you already have on the machine. You may 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 site, which shall influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS

If you choose to purchase one of our VPS, we shall provide you with one dedicated IP address by default and a second one at no extra cost - if you add any one of the hosting Control Panels which we offer to your order. Extra IPs may be purchased with ease if you need them. The option is provided on the order page, so if you require more IPs right away, we can assign them to your VPS the instant it's set up and you can use them as soon as you start using the machine. If you require 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 customers' sites if you have launched a reseller business. You can order IPs as often as required and renew them together with your virtual hosting server plan. If, at some point, you require less IPs, you will have the opportunity to renew only those which you require, while the extra ones will be taken off your web server.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting

In case you obtain one of our dedicated server plans, you will get three IP addresses at no additional charge and you'll be able to use them for any purpose. If you require even more IPs, you can request them whenever you want through your billing area and we shall assign them to the web server a couple of minutes later. You can even get more IPs during the signup process and they'll be available on your machine the instant it's set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of 3 and you could select how many addresses you'll order and how long you shall use them, as you could choose the number of IPs that you will renew each month with your web server plan. Any IP address which is assigned to your dedicated server could be used not just for your personal content, but for any Internet site or application which your clients may have - if you have purchased the server with the intention to resell the disk space to third parties.
