I'm told that there are two IP addressed included in my VPS account. But these two IPs are for me only, or shared with other websites?

If theses are shared IPs, can I buy extra static IP addresses for my websites?

Thank you very much!

We get two with our VPS account but in order to change the IP address of one of the domains under WHM we need to have root access, correct? At leat that's what i was told. Otherwise we cannot access the the "IP Functions" tab shown in the first image of the "Assigning an IP in WHM (VPS Reseller and Dedicated)" shown on this page: http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/website/ip-addresses/purchase-dedicated-ip-address-amp

Hello chengdupaulyin, and thanks for your question.

You can purchase additional dedicated IP addresses for $2.00/month or $24.00/year. We have a guide on how to obtain additional IP addresses that goes over the specifics of a shared IP address vs a dedicated one, as well as how you can purchase one via our AMP (Account Management Panel).

By default your IP addresses would be shared between multiple websites which is fine, typically you'd need a separate dedicated IP address if you were using a SSL certificate, or had a legacy application that couldn't use hostnames and had to still rely on an IP.

Please let us know if you have any further questions at all.
