An IP address is a unique number which identifies an Internet site or a hosting server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed just by your websites and shall not be shared with other people as it happens with shared hosting accounts. In case you have your own hosting server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for a variety of purposes. If you have an electronic store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, so as to ensure that the payment info which your clients submit will be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some sort and you want the usernames and the passwords which visitors input 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 server. You may also need a separate IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better overall performance for a certain website, which may influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting
Each and every VPS web hosting package which we supply includes 1 dedicated IP address and if you add a web hosting Control Panel to it, we shall supply you with a second one at no additional cost, allowing you to use it as you see fit. If you need to use more IPs, you shall be able to order them with only 2 mouse clicks at any time, as you will discover this sort of an option both on our order page and within your billing CP. In the first case, the dedicated addresses shall be available as soon as the virtual server is ready, while in the second - a few moments after you purchase them. You'll be able to renew the IPs along with your VPS plan and use them for as long as you wish. They can be useful not simply for your own Internet sites, but also for the sites of any customers that you might have in the event that you are using the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business. There's no restriction on how frequently you'll be able to order additional IPs or on how many of them you'll be able to use with your server at any given time.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you acquire one of our dedicated server packages, you'll receive 3 IP addresses at no additional charge and you could use them for any purpose. If you need additional IPs, you may request them anytime from your billing area and we will assign them to the hosting server a couple of minutes later. You can even get additional IPs during the signup process and they shall be available on your server the minute it is set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of 3 and you can select how many addresses you will order and how long you will use them, as you could select the number of IPs which you will renew on a monthly basis with your web server plan. Any IP address which is assigned to your dedicated server may be used not just for your personal content, but also for any website or app your customers may have - if you have purchased the server with the aim to resell the disk space to third parties.
