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 shall be employed only by your Internet sites and shall not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. If you have your own server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for a variety of uses. If you have an online store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make sure that the payment info that your clients submit will be encrypted and safe. The same is valid if you have a login form of some type and you wish the usernames and the passwords which visitors input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which needs to be different from the one which you already have on the web server. You could also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better efficiency for a certain website, which will influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Every single VPS server service
that we provide features 1 dedicated IP address and if you add an Internet hosting CP to it, we shall supply you with a second one at no additional cost, so that you can use it the way you see fit. If you need to use more IPs, you will be able to order them with just a couple of mouse clicks whenever you want, since you'll find this type of an option both on our order page and in your billing Control Panel. In the first case, the dedicated addresses shall be available the instant the virtual server is set, while in the second - a few minutes after you purchase them. You could renew the IPs along with your VPS plan and use them for so long as you would like. They can come in handy not simply for your own Internet sites, but also for the sites of any customers which you might have in the event that you're using the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business. There isn't a restriction on how often you'll be able to order additional IPs or on the number of of them you can use with your web server at any moment.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server
which we offer features 3 dedicated IP addresses provided free of charge on top of the monthly fee for the package deal. We also give you the chance to add more IPs to your web server both when you sign up and at a later time through your billing CP, so you could order the IPs whenever you require them with no restriction on the number or on how often you get them. They can be purchased in groups of 3 and shall be assigned to your hosting server right away. You'll be able to renew them with the Internet hosting plan and you can decide if you'll renew all of them, or a smaller amount - in the event that you no longer require the rest. Each dedicated IP address assigned to your server can be used for any purpose: for a personal website, for a software hosting server, or for a hosting customer - if you have decided to start your own Internet hosting business and you are reselling accounts to other people.
