An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes a site or a server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed only by your Internet sites and shall not be shared with others as it happens with shared hosting accounts. In case you have your own web server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for different uses. If you have a web-based store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, to ensure that the payment information that your clients submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you want 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 that you already have on the server. You might also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better functionality for a certain website, which may affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting
If you select one of the virtual private servers packages that we offer, you shall get 1 dedicated IP address, and with every hosting server which is ordered with a Control Panel, we provide a second one free of charge. If you would like to use additional IPs, you are able to add them to your package with just a couple of mouse clicks at any time. If you need them immediately, for example, you are able to add them to your order and they'll be assigned to your VPS the minute it is set up. In the event that you need them later, you can add them via your billing Control Panel and they shall be available within a matter of minutes. You can assign them to personal Internet sites with a couple of mouse clicks or to any of your clients - if you're using the virtual server to start out 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 as long as required.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting
We give 3 totally free dedicated IP addresses with each and every dedicated server that we offer, but if you require more, you'll be able to order them easily and they'll be assigned to your web server right away. The upgrade is available both on our order page and within the billing Control Panel, so you can get additional IPs whenever you require them - in the very beginning or at any time afterwards. You'll be able to order the upgrade in increments of three and include as many IP addresses as you need at any moment. You'll be able to renew just the IPs that you need along with the web hosting plan, so if, eventually, you need less IPs, you could simply renew those which you need and the other ones shall be removed from your web server. With our upgrade, you could use a dedicated address not just for your Internet sites and apps, but also for your clients’ Internet sites and applications - in case you're using the server to run an Internet hosting reseller business. Any IP on top of the default 3 IPs can be employed for as long as you require it.
