An IP address is a unique number which identifies a website or a hosting server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it will be used exclusively by your Internet sites and shall not be shared with others as it happens with shared hosting accounts. If you have your own hosting server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for many different purposes. In case you have an electronic store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, so as to ensure that the payment info that your clients submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid if you have a login form of some type and you wish the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which should be different from the one that you already have on the hosting server. You may also need a separate IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better overall performance for a particular Internet site, which may affect 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 too - in case they are ordered with a hosting Control Panel. In case you require more IPs, however, you'll be able to incorporate them easily, whatever the package that you have chosen. You'll be able to do this during the signup procedure in case you need them from the start or using your billing account - if you need them later. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your server right after that and you can start using them. You can renew the IPs together with the plan for as long as you intend to use them. This upgrade is extremely useful not simply for your personal content, but also in the event that you wish to use the virtual server to run a web hosting reseller business, since you'll be able to provide a dedicated IP to every customer who wants to use one. There isn't any restriction on how many addresses you may order or on how frequently you'll be able to do that.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
Every dedicated server we offer features three dedicated IP addresses provided totally free on top of the monthly fee for the plan. We also offer the opportunity to add more IPs to your server both when you sign up and at a later time through your billing Control Panel, so you could order the IPs whenever you require them without a limitation on the amount or on how often you get them. They may be purchased in groups of three and shall be assigned to your hosting server right away. You may renew them with the hosting plan and you'll be able to decide if you will renew all of them, or a smaller number - in the event that you no longer need the rest. Each dedicated IP address allotted to your hosting server could be used for any purpose: for a personal Internet site, for a software web server, or for a hosting client - if you've decided to launch your own Internet hosting firm and you're reselling accounts to other people.
