An IP address is a unique number that identifies a site or a hosting server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it will be used solely by your Internet sites and will not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. If you have your own hosting server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for a variety of uses. In case you have a web-based store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, to make certain that the payment info which your clients submit will be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some type and you want the usernames and the passwords that visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which has to be different from the one which you already have on the machine. You may also need an individual IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better efficiency for a given Internet site, which will affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers come with one dedicated IP address by default. Another one is available too - when they are ordered with a hosting CP. In the event that you require more IPs, however, you will be able to incorporate them easily, no matter the plan which you have picked. You may do this during the signup procedure in the event that you need them from the beginning or using your billing account - if you need them later on. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your server shortly after that and you may start using them. You may renew the IPs together with the plan for so long as you intend to use them. This upgrade is very useful not simply for your personal content, but also in case you intend to use the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business, considering that you shall be able to provide a dedicated IP to any client who would want to use one. There isn't a restriction on the amount of addresses you can order or on how frequently you may do that.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated servers which we offer come with 3 IP addresses by default and you could use them in whatever way you see fit. If you need even more IPs for any reason, you can add them to your hosting server with just a few clicks without limitations as to their number or the period for which you will be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and if you need the IPs right away, you can add them to the plan during the signup process, while if it turns out that you require more IPs at some point later on, you can order them just as easily from your billing area and we will assign them to your dedicated server a few minutes later. The dedicated IPs can be renewed along with the server plan on a monthly basis and you can choose if you shall renew all of them or simply a few - in the event that you no longer need that many. You'll be able to use the IPs both for your own websites and for client hosting accounts - if you are using the dedicated server as an Internet hosting reseller platform.
