An IP address is a unique number that identifies an Internet site or a web server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed solely by your websites and won't be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. If you have your own server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for a variety of purposes. Provided you have an Internet store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment information your customers submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some sort and you would like the usernames and the passwords that visitors enter to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which needs to be different from the one that you already have on the hosting server. You could also need a separate IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better efficiency for a given Internet site, which may affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
If you choose one of the VPS servers solutions we provide, you shall get 1 dedicated IP address, and with every server that is ordered with a CP, we give a second one at no extra cost. If you'd like to use additional IPs, you are able to add them to your plan with a couple of clicks whenever you want. In case you require them immediately, for instance, you can add them to your order and they will be assigned to your VPS the instant it's set up. In case you need them later, you can add them through your billing Control Panel and they shall be available within a matter of minutes. You may assign them to personal websites with a couple of clicks or to any of your customers - if you're using the virtual server to start out your own web hosting business. You could take advantage of this upgrade as often as you want and you may renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for so long as desired.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
All Linux dedicated web hosting plans which we offer come with 3 IP addresses by default and you may use them in whatever way you see fit. If you need more IPs for any reason, you may add them to your web server with just a few clicks without any restrictions as to their number or the period for which you'll be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and if you require the IPs straight away, you may add them to the package during the signup process, while in the event that it turns out that you need more IPs at some point afterwards, you can order them just as quickly via your billing area and we'll assign them to your dedicated server a couple of minutes later. The dedicated IPs may be renewed along with the hosting server plan on a monthly basis and you could determine if you'll renew all of them or just a few - if you no longer need that many. You'll be able to use the IPs both for your own Internet sites and for client hosting accounts - if you are using the dedicated server as an Internet hosting reseller platform.
