An IP address is a unique number that separates a site or a server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used just by your Internet sites and will not be shared with others as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. In case you have your own web server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for a variety of uses. If you have an online store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make sure that the payment info your customers submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some kind and you would like the usernames and the passwords that visitors enter 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 hosting server. You may also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better overall performance for a certain site, which will influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers come with one dedicated IP address by default. An additional one is available as well - if they are ordered with a web hosting CP. In case you need more IPs, however, you shall be able to incorporate them effortlessly, regardless of the plan that you have chosen. You can do this during the signup procedure in case you need them from the start or via your billing account - in the event that you need them later. The dedicated IPs will be assigned to your hosting server shortly after that and you'll be able to start using them. You may renew the IPs together with the plan for so long as you intend to use them. This upgrade is incredibly useful not only for your personal content, but also in the event that 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 customer who would like to use one. There isn't a restriction on the amount of addresses you could order or on how often you could do that.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
Every single dedicated server that we offer includes three dedicated IP addresses provided at no extra cost on top of the monthly fee for the package deal. We also offer the opportunity to add more IPs to your web server both when you sign up and at a later time using your billing Control Panel, so you can 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 shall be assigned to your web server right away. You can renew them with the Internet hosting plan and you could decide if you'll renew all of them, or a smaller number - in the event that you no longer need the rest. Each dedicated IP address allocated to your hosting server could be used for any purpose: for a personal Internet site, for a software web server, or for a hosting customer - in the event that you have decided to start out your own web hosting firm and you're reselling accounts to other people.
