An IP address is a unique number which separates a site or a server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used exclusively by your sites and will not be shared with other people as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. In case you have your own web server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for a variety of purposes. Provided you have an Internet store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, in order to ensure that the payment info your clients submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid if you have a login form of some type and you would like the usernames and the passwords that visitors input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which ought to be different from the one that you already have on the server. You might also need an individual IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better efficiency for a particular website, which shall affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting
Our Linux VPS web hosting packages come with one dedicated IP address by default. A second one is available also - when they are ordered with an Internet hosting Control Panel. In case you need more IPs, however, you will be able to include them effortlessly, no matter the plan that you've selected. You can do this during the signup process in case you need them from the beginning or through your billing account - in the event that you need them later on. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your web server shortly after that and you'll be able to start using them. You may renew the IPs along with the plan for as long as you intend to use them. This upgrade is extremely useful not simply for your personal content, but also in the event that you want to use the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business, considering that you'll be able to supply a dedicated IP to any customer who wants to use one. There isn't a restriction on how many addresses you can order or on how often you may do that.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting

The upgrade can be purchased both on our order page and within the billing CP, so you'll be able to get additional IPs whenever you require them - in the very beginning or at any time later. You may order the upgrade in increments of three and add as many IP addresses as you require at any moment. You can renew only the IPs which you want together with the hosting plan, so if, at one point, you need less IPs, you can simply renew those you need and the other ones will be removed from your server. With our upgrade, you could use a dedicated address not only for your websites and applications, but also for your clients’ sites and applications - in the event that you're using the machine to run a hosting reseller business. Any IP on top of the default 3 IPs could be used for as long as you require it.
