An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes a website or a web server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed solely by your sites and won't be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared hosting accounts. If you have your own server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for different uses. If you have a web-based store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make certain that the payment information your customers submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which ought to be different from the one which you already have on the server. You could also need an independent IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better functionality for a particular website, which will influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS
If you opt for one of the virtual private servers packages which we supply, you will get one dedicated IP address, and with every server which is ordered with a Control Panel, we provide 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 just several mouse clicks anytime. If you need them immediately, for example, you could add them to your order and they shall be assigned to your VPS the instant it is set up. In case you need them later, you'll be able to add them through your billing CP and they'll be available within a couple of minutes. You can assign them to personal sites with a couple of clicks or to any of your clients - if you are using the virtual server to start your own Internet hosting business. You could benefit from this upgrade as often as you like and you could renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for so long as required.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting
We provide three totally free dedicated IP addresses with every dedicated server that we offer, but in the event that you require more, you can order them with ease and they'll be assigned to your hosting server immediately. The upgrade can be purchased both on our order page and within the billing CP, so you can get additional IPs whenever you require them - in the beginning or at any time later on. You can order the upgrade in increments of three and add as many IP addresses as you require at any given time. You may renew just the IPs which you need along with the hosting plan, so if, at one point, you need less IPs, you can simply renew those that you need and the other ones will be removed from your web server. With our upgrade, you'll be able to use a dedicated address not only for your Internet sites and applications, but also for your clients’ websites and applications - in the event that you're using the machine to run a web hosting reseller business. Any IP on top of the default 3 IPs could be employed for as long as you need it.
