An IP address is a unique number which separates an Internet site or a hosting server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed solely by your Internet sites and won't 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 need additional ones for a variety of uses. Provided you have an electronic store, for example, you will need an SSL certificate for it, so as to ensure that the payment info your customers submit will be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some sort and you wish the usernames and the passwords that visitors input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which should be different from the one that you already have on the server. You could also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better performance for a given site, which will affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Our Linux VPS servers include 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 with ease, no matter the package which you have selected. You could do this during the signup process in the event that you need them from the beginning or through your billing account - in the event that you need them afterwards. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your server shortly after that and you may start using them. You could renew the IPs together with the plan for so long as you want to use them. This upgrade is extremely useful not just for your personal content, but also in case you would like to use the virtual server to run a web hosting reseller business, considering that you will be able to supply a dedicated IP to every client who would like to use one. There isn't any restriction on how many addresses you may order or on how often you'll be able to do that.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated web hosting plans which we offer feature three IP addresses by default and you may use them in any way you see fit. In the event that you need more IPs for any reason, you can add them to your hosting server with a few mouse clicks with no limits as to their number or the period for which you'll be able to employ them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in case you need the IPs right away, you can add them to the package during the signup process, while if it turns out that you need more IPs at some point later on, you can order them just as quickly from your billing area and we'll assign them to your dedicated server a few minutes later. The dedicated IPs could be renewed along with the hosting server plan on a monthly basis and you can choose if you will renew all of them or only a few - if you no longer require that many. You may use the IPs both for your own websites and for customer hosting accounts - when you are using the dedicated server as a web hosting reseller platform.
