An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes an Internet site or a server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed exclusively by your websites and shall not be shared with other people as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. If you have your own server, you'll 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, to ensure that the payment information your customers submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some kind and you want the usernames and the passwords that visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which should be different from the one which you already have on the hosting server. You might also need an individual IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better functionality for a certain website, which may affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Hosting
Our Linux VPS hosting services come with one dedicated IP address by default. A second one is available also - in case they are ordered with a web hosting CP. If you require more IPs, however, you will be able to include them easily, whatever the plan that you've chosen. You can do this during the signup process if you need them from the beginning or using your billing account - in the event that 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 along 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 if you wish to use the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business, considering the fact that you'll be able to supply a dedicated IP to every client who would like to use one. There is no restriction on the number of addresses you'll be able to order or on how frequently you'll be able to do that.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting
We provide 3 free dedicated IP addresses with each and every dedicated server which we offer, but in the event that you require more, you'll be able to order them easily and they'll be assigned to your web server immediately. The upgrade can be purchased both on our order page and in the billing CP, so you can get additional IPs whenever you require them - in the beginning or anytime later. You can order the upgrade in increments of three and include as many IP addresses as you require at any time. You'll be able to renew just the IPs which you need along with the website hosting plan, so if, eventually, you need less IPs, you can simply renew those that you need and the other ones will be removed from your web server. With our upgrade, you'll be able to use a dedicated address not only for your websites and applications, but also for your clients’ websites and apps - if you are using the machine to run an Internet hosting reseller company. Any IP on top of the default three IPs can be used for so long as you require it.
