An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes a site or a server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed exclusively by your websites and won't be shared with other people as it happens with shared hosting accounts. In case you have your own hosting server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for many different uses. If you have an Internet store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make certain that the payment information which your customers submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some sort and you want the usernames and the passwords that visitors input to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which ought to be different from the one that you already have on the machine. You may also need an individual IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better efficiency for a particular site, which shall influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers provide one dedicated IP address by default. A second one is available as well - when they are ordered with an Internet hosting Control Panel. In case you need more IPs, however, you'll be able to include them easily, whatever the package which you've picked. You could do this during the signup process if you need them from the very beginning or through your billing account - in case you need them later. The dedicated IPs will be assigned to your server soon after that and you could begin using them. You may renew the IPs along with the plan for as long as you plan to use them. This upgrade is quite useful not only for your personal content, but also in case you would like to use the virtual server to run a web hosting reseller business, because you shall be able to supply a dedicated IP to any customer who wants to use one. There isn't any restriction on the number of addresses you'll be able to order or on how often you could do that.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server which we offer includes 3 dedicated IP addresses provided 100 % free on top of the monthly fee for the package. We also give you the chance to add more IPs to your server both when you sign up and at a later time via your billing Control Panel, so you may order the IPs whenever you need them with no limit on the number or on how often you get them. They can be purchased in groups of three and will be assigned to your hosting server instantly. You could renew them with the web hosting plan and you'll be able to choose if you will renew all of them, or a smaller amount - in the event that you no longer need the rest. Each and every dedicated IP address assigned to your hosting server may be used for any purpose: for a personal website, for a software hosting server, or for a hosting customer - in the event that you've decided to start your own Internet hosting enterprise and you're reselling accounts to other people.
