An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes a site or a server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be used only by your sites and won't be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. Provided you have your own server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for many different uses. Provided you have a web-based store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, so as to ensure that the payment info 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 would like the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which has to be different from the one that you already have on the hosting server. You could also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better efficiency for a certain Internet site, which shall affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS
Our VPS services include one dedicated IP address by default. An additional one is available too - if they are ordered with a hosting CP. In the event that you need more IPs, however, you will be able to incorporate them easily, regardless of the package that you've chosen. You could do this during the signup procedure in the event that you need them from the very beginning or using your billing account - in the event that you need them afterwards. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your web server shortly after that and you can begin using them. You can renew the IPs together with the plan for so long as you want to use them. This upgrade is extremely useful not only for your personal content, but also in case you would like to use the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business, considering that you shall be able to supply a dedicated IP to every customer who wants to use one. There isn't a restriction on the number of addresses you'll be able to order or on how frequently you may do that.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting
Every single dedicated server that we offer includes three dedicated IP addresses supplied at no extra cost on top of the monthly fee for the package. We also give you the opportunity to add more IPs to your web server both when you sign up and at a later time through your billing CP, so you may order the IPs whenever you require them with no limitation on the number or on how often you get them. They can be purchased in groups of 3 and shall be assigned to your hosting server instantly. You'll be able to renew them with the Internet hosting plan and you can decide if you'll renew all of them, or a smaller number - 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 site, for a software server, or for a hosting customer - if you have decided to start your own Internet hosting firm and you're reselling accounts to other people.
