An IP address is a unique number which separates a site or a web server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed only by your websites and won't be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. If you have your own web server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for different uses. Provided you have an electronic store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment info your clients submit shall be encrypted and protected. 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 that visitors type in to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which needs to be different from the one that you already have on the hosting server. You may also need an individual IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better performance for a certain Internet site, which will influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

If you choose to purchase one of our VPS servers, we shall give you one dedicated IP address by default and a second one totally free - in the event that you add any one of the hosting Control Panels that we offer to your order. Extra IPs can be purchased easily in case you need them. The option is provided on the order page, so in case you require more IPs from the beginning, we can assign them to your VPS whenever it's set up and you can use them as soon as you start using the server. If you require them for any reason afterwards, you can order them through the billing area and they'll be available within a matter of minutes. Thus, you'll be able to assign dedicated IP addresses not only to your own websites, but also to clients' sites in case you've launched a reseller enterprise. You could order IPs as often as required and renew them along with your virtual server plan. If, eventually, you require less IPs, you shall have the opportunity to renew just those that you need, while the extra ones shall be taken off your machine.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

When you get one of our dedicated server packages, you'll get 3 IP addresses at no additional charge and you can use them for any purpose. If you need more IPs, you can request them whenever you want from your billing area and we will assign them to the server a couple of minutes later. You can even get more IPs during the signup process and they'll be available on your server the instant it's set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you could choose how many addresses you'll order and how long you shall use them, since you can choose the number of IPs which you'll renew on a monthly basis with your server plan. Any IP address which is assigned to your dedicated server could be used not only for your personal content, but for any Internet site or application that your customers may have - if you have acquired the server with the intention to resell the disk space to third parties.
