An IP address is a unique number that identifies an Internet site or a server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed solely by your sites and won't be shared with other people as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. If you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for many different purposes. If you have an electronic store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make sure that the payment info your customers submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some type and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which ought to be different from the one which you already have on the web server. You might also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better functionality for a particular website, which will influence its position in search engine results.

Our Linux VPS hosting come with one dedicated IP address by default. A second one is available too - if they are ordered with an Internet hosting Control Panel. In case you require more IPs, however, you shall be able to include them effortlessly, whatever the plan that you have chosen. You can do this during the signup process in the event that you need them from the very beginning or via your billing account - in case you need them afterwards. The dedicated IPs will be assigned to your hosting server right after that and you may start using them. You may renew the IPs together with the plan for as long as you intend to use them.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting
We provide 3 totally free dedicated IP addresses with every dedicated server we offer, but in case you require more, you may order them easily and they shall be assigned to your hosting server at once. The upgrade is available both on our order page and inside the billing Control Panel, so you can get additional IPs whenever you require them - in the very beginning or anytime later. You may order the upgrade in increments of three and include as many IP addresses as you want at any given time. You can renew just the IPs which you want together with the hosting plan, so if, at one point, you need less IPs, you could simply renew those which you need and the other ones will be removed from your server. With our upgrade, you'll be able to use a dedicated address not only for your sites and applications, but also for your clients’ Internet sites and apps - in the event that you're using the server to run a hosting reseller enterprise. Any IP on top of the default 3 IPs can be employed for so long as you need it.
