An IP address is a unique number which separates an Internet site or a server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used solely by your Internet sites and will not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. In case you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for various purposes. If you have an Internet store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment info which your customers submit will be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some kind and you wish the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which has to be different from the one which you already have on the server. You could also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better efficiency for a given Internet site, which will affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Our VPS hosting plans include one dedicated IP address by default. A second one is available also - if they are ordered with a web hosting Control Panel. In the event that you need more IPs, however, you will be able to incorporate them easily, no matter the package which you have picked. You are able to do this during the signup procedure in case you need them from the very beginning or via your billing account - if you need them later. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your server shortly after that and you'll be able to start using them. You can renew the IPs along with the plan for as long as you want to use them. This upgrade is very useful not only for your personal content, but also in case you intend to use the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business, considering the fact that you shall be able to provide a dedicated IP to any client who wants to use one. There is no restriction on the number of addresses you'll be able to order or on how frequently you could do that.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server we offer features three dedicated IP addresses supplied 100 % free on top of the monthly fee for the package. We also give you the opportunity to add more IPs to your web server both when you sign up and at a later time via your billing CP, so you may order the IPs whenever you require them without a restriction on the amount or on how often you get them. They can be purchased in groups of three and shall be assigned to your hosting server instantly. You'll be able to renew them with the hosting plan and you may choose if you'll renew all of them, or a smaller number - in case you no longer need the rest. Every dedicated IP address assigned to your hosting server could be used for any purpose: for a personal Internet site, for a software server, or for a hosting customer - in case you have decided to start out your own web hosting business and you're reselling accounts to other people.
