It depends on the terminal adapter. I have Vonage with a Cisco
ATA-186 and it supports three phones fine.

Most VoIP carriers give you a terminal adapter into which you plug a
phone rather than a standalone phone. You can always throw money at
the problem and plug in a high-end cordless phone that supports
multiple handsets.

You can also buy ring boosters that increase the number of phones you
can plug in.
