An IP address is a unique number which separates an Internet site or a server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed exclusively by your sites and will not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared hosting accounts. If you have your own web server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for different uses. Provided you have a web-based store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make sure that the payment info which your clients submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid if you have a login form of some type and you wish the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which has to be different from the one that you already have on the hosting server. You could also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better functionality for a given Internet site, which may affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting
If you decide to buy one of our VPS web hosting packages, we'll provide you with one dedicated IP address by default and a second one totally free - if you add any one of the hosting Control Panels that we offer to your order. Additional IPs can be purchased with ease if you need them. The option is offered on the order page, so if you need more IPs right away, we shall be able to assign them to your VPS the instant it is put in place and you can use them as soon as you start using the web server. If you need them for any reason later on, you can order them from the billing area and they shall be available within a matter of minutes. That way, you shall be able to assign dedicated IP addresses not just to your own websites, but also to customers' sites provided you have launched a reseller business. You'll be able to order IPs as frequently as needed and renew them together with your virtual server plan. If, at some point, you require less IPs, you will have the chance to renew only those which you require, while the extra ones will be taken off your hosting server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All dedicated servers hosting packages that we offer come with 3 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 server with a few clicks without any limits as to their number or the length of time for which you'll be able to employ them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in the event that you need the IPs right from the start, you can add them to the package deal during the signup process, while in the event that it turns out that you require more IPs at some point later on, you could order them just as simply via your billing area and we will assign them to your dedicated server several minutes later. The dedicated IPs could be renewed together with the web 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 may use the IPs both for your own websites and for client hosting accounts - if you are using the dedicated server as an Internet hosting reseller platform.
