An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes a website or a server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it will be used exclusively by your sites and won't be shared with others as it happens with shared hosting accounts. Provided you have your own hosting server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for a variety of uses. In case you have an electronic store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment information that your clients submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some type and you wish the usernames and the passwords which visitors input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which needs to be different from the one that you already have on the server. You could also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better performance for a certain site, which shall influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting
If you opt for one of the virtual private servers solutions that we supply, you shall get 1 dedicated IP address, and with any server that is ordered with a CP, we give a second one at no extra cost. If you wish to use additional IPs, you'll be able to add them to your package with only a few mouse clicks whenever you want. In case you need them immediately, for example, you can add them to your order and they shall be assigned to your VPS the minute it is set up. In case you need them later, you'll be able to add them through your billing CP and they will be available within a couple of minutes. You may assign them to personal sites with a couple of clicks or to any of your customers - if you are using the virtual server to start out your own Internet hosting company. You'll be able to take advantage of this upgrade as often as you like and you may renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for as long as desired.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Each and every dedicated server we offer features three dedicated IP addresses supplied totally free on top of the monthly fee for the package deal. We also offer the chance to add more IPs to your web server both when you sign up and at a later time using your billing CP, so you may order the IPs whenever you require them without a limit on the amount or on how often you get them. They may be purchased in groups of three and will be assigned to your server instantly. You can renew them with the hosting plan and you'll be able to decide if you'll renew all of them, or a smaller amount - in the event that you no longer need the rest. Each and every dedicated IP address allocated to your server can be used for any purpose: for a personal Internet site, for a software web server, or for a hosting customer - in case you have decided to launch your own web hosting company and you are reselling accounts to other people.
