An IP address is a unique number which separates an Internet site or a web server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed solely by your Internet sites and shall not be shared with other people as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. If you have your own hosting server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for various purposes. In case you have an Internet store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, to make certain that the payment info that your customers submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you want the usernames and the passwords that visitors input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which needs to be different from the one which 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 functionality for a certain site, which will influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting
Every single VPS web hosting package we offer features one dedicated IP address and if you add an Internet hosting Control Panel to it, we'll give you a second one at no additional cost, allowing you to use it as you see fit. If you want to use more IPs, you will be able to order them with no more than a couple of mouse clicks anytime, since you'll find such an option both on our order page and in your billing CP. In the first case, the dedicated addresses shall be available the moment the virtual server is ready, while in the second - a few minutes after you purchase them. You'll be able to renew the IPs together with your VPS plan and use them for as long as you need. They can be useful not only 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 a web hosting reseller business. There's no limitation on how many times you can order additional IPs or on the amount of of them you can use with your machine at any given time.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting
We give 3 free dedicated IP addresses with every single dedicated server we offer, but in the event that you need more, you may order them effortlessly and they will be assigned to your web server immediately. The upgrade can be purchased both on our order page and in the billing CP, so you'll be able to get additional IPs whenever you require them - in the very beginning or at any time later on. You could order the upgrade in increments of three and include as many IP addresses as you need at any given time. You can renew just the IPs which you need together with the hosting plan, so if, eventually, you need less IPs, you could simply renew those that you need and the other ones will be removed from your server. With our upgrade, you can use a dedicated address not only for your Internet sites and apps, but also for your clients’ Internet sites and applications - if you are using the server to run an Internet hosting reseller business. Any IP on top of the default 3 IPs could be employed for as long as you need it.
