An IP address is a unique number that separates a site or a web server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed solely by your sites and shall not be shared with other people as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. In case you have your own hosting server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for a variety of purposes. Provided you have an electronic store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make sure that the payment info which your clients submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some type and you want the usernames and the passwords that visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which ought to be different from the one which you already have on the web server. You may also need a separate IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better functionality for a particular website, which may affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers include one dedicated IP address by default. An additional one is available also - when they are ordered with a web hosting CP. If you require more IPs, however, you will be able to add them easily, no matter the plan which you have picked. You can do this during the signup procedure in the event that you need them from the start or using your billing account - in the event that you need them later. The dedicated IPs will be assigned to your server right after that and you may begin using them. You may renew the IPs together with the plan for so long as you intend to use them. This upgrade is quite useful not simply for your personal content, but also in case you wish to use the virtual server to run a web hosting reseller business, because you will be able to provide a dedicated IP to every customer who would want to use one. There's no restriction on the amount of addresses you can order or on how often you can do that.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
Every single dedicated server that we offer comes with three dedicated IP addresses provided absolutely free on top of the monthly fee for the plan. We also supply you with the chance to add more IPs to your server both when you sign up and at a later time via your billing Control Panel, so you could order the IPs whenever you need them without a limitation on the amount or on how often you get them. They can be purchased in groups of three and will be assigned to your server right away. You could renew them with the hosting plan and you may decide if you will renew all of them, or a smaller amount - if you no longer need the rest. Each and every dedicated IP address allotted to your hosting server can be used for any purpose: for a personal website, for a software web server, or for a hosting client - if you have decided to start your own Internet hosting business and you are reselling accounts to other people.
