An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes a site or a hosting server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed only by your Internet sites and won't be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared hosting accounts. In case you have your own web server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for a variety of purposes. In case you have a web-based store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, to make certain that the payment information which your customers submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which should be different from the one which you already have on the web server. You could also need an independent IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better functionality for a certain website, which will influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Hosting

If you opt for one of the virtual private servers packages that we supply, you shall get one dedicated IP address, and with every hosting server which is ordered with a CP, we give a second one free of charge. If you'd like to use additional IPs, you may add them to your package deal with just a couple of clicks whenever you want. If you need them at once, for example, you may add them to your order and they will be assigned to your VPS as soon as it's set up. In case you need them later, you can add them through your billing CP and they shall be available within a couple of minutes. You can assign them to personal websites with several clicks or to any of your customers - if you are using the virtual server to start out your own hosting company. You could take advantage of this upgrade as often as you wish and you may renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for as long as desired.
