An IP address is a unique number which identifies a site or a server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed exclusively by your Internet sites and shall not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. Provided you have your own web server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for a variety of uses. In case you have an Internet store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make sure that the payment information your clients submit will be encrypted and safe. The same is valid if you have a login form of some type and you want the usernames and the passwords which visitors input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which ought to be different from the one which you already have on the web server. You may also need an individual IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better performance for a given website, 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. Another one is available too - if they are ordered with an Internet hosting CP. In case you require more IPs, however, you will be able to incorporate them effortlessly, no matter the plan which you have selected. You are able to do this during the signup process in the event that you need them from the very beginning or using your billing account - if you need them later on. The dedicated IPs will be assigned to your server right after that and you can start using them. You can renew the IPs along with the plan for so long as you plan to use them. This upgrade is incredibly useful not just for your personal content, but also when you want to use the virtual server to run a web hosting reseller business, considering the fact that you will be able to offer a dedicated IP to every customer who wants to use one. There isn't any restriction on how many addresses you can order or on how many times you can do that.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated servers we offer come with three IP addresses by default and you may use them in any way you see fit. In the event that you require additional IPs for any reason, you may add them to your hosting server with a couple of clicks without limitations as to their number or to the length of time for which you shall be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in case you require the IPs straight away, you may add them to the package deal during the signup procedure, while in the event that it turns out that you require more IPs at some point afterwards, you may order them just as easily via 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'll be able to choose if you will renew all of them or simply a few - in case you no longer require that many. You could use the IPs both for your own Internet sites and for client hosting accounts - provided you're using the dedicated server as a hosting reseller platform.
