An IP address is a unique number which separates a website or a web server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed exclusively by your websites and shall not be shared with other people as it happens with shared hosting accounts. Provided you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for a variety of uses. If you have an Internet store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment information that your customers submit will be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some type and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which ought to be different from the one which you already have on the machine. You could also need an independent IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better overall performance for a certain website, which shall affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Our Linux VPS hosting plans include one dedicated IP address by default. An additional one is available also - in case they are ordered with a hosting CP. In case you require more IPs, however, you'll be able to add them with ease, no matter the plan that you have chosen. You are able to do this during the signup procedure if you need them from the beginning or using your billing account - if you need them later on. The dedicated IPs will be assigned to your hosting server soon after that and you could begin using them. You could renew the IPs along with the plan for so long as you plan to use them. This upgrade is extremely useful not only for your personal content, but also in case you would like to use the virtual server to run a web hosting reseller business, considering that you will be able to supply a dedicated IP to every customer who wants to use one. There's no restriction on the number of addresses you'll be able to order or on how many times you could do that.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
We supply three 100 % free dedicated IP addresses with every single dedicated server we offer, but if you require more, you may order them with ease and they shall be assigned to your machine right away. The upgrade can be purchased both on our order page and in the billing CP, so you'll be able to get additional IPs whenever you require them - in the very beginning or anytime afterwards. You can order the upgrade in increments of three and add as many IP addresses as you want at any time. You can renew only the IPs which you need along with the hosting plan, so if, sooner or later, you need less IPs, you may simply renew those that you need and the other ones will be removed from your hosting server. With our upgrade, you can use a dedicated address not just for your sites and apps, but also for your clients’ Internet sites and applications - in the event that you're using the machine to run an Internet hosting reseller enterprise. Any IP on top of the default 3 IPs may be employed for as long as you require it.
