An IP address is a unique number which separates a website or a web server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used only by your Internet sites and shall not be shared with others as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. Provided you have your own web server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for a variety of uses. In case you have an online store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make sure that the payment information your clients submit will be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some sort and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in 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 machine. You could also need a separate IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better functionality for a particular Internet site, which may affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Our Linux VPS servers include one dedicated IP address by default. Another one is available as well - in case they are ordered with a hosting CP. If you require more IPs, however, you shall be able to include them with ease, whatever the plan that you have chosen. You may do this during the signup process in case you need them from the very beginning or through your billing account - if you need them later on. The dedicated IPs will be assigned to your server shortly after that and you can begin using them. You'll be able to renew the IPs together with the plan for so long as you want to use them. This upgrade is incredibly useful not simply for your personal content, but also when you would like to use the virtual server to run a web hosting reseller business, considering the fact that you shall be able to supply a dedicated IP to every client who would want to use one. There's no restriction on the number of addresses you can order or on how often you'll be able to do that.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
Every dedicated server that we offer includes 3 dedicated IP addresses provided totally free on top of the monthly fee for the plan. We also give you the opportunity to add more IPs to your web 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 without a 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 immediately. You may renew them with the hosting plan and you'll be able to choose if you will renew all of them, or a smaller number - in case you no longer need the rest. Every dedicated IP address allocated to your hosting server may be used for any purpose: for a personal Internet site, for a software hosting server, or for a hosting client - in the event that you've decided to start your own hosting firm and you are reselling accounts to other people.
