An IP address is a unique number which separates a site or a web server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed only by your sites and shall not be shared with others as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. In case you have your own server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for a variety of purposes. If you have an Internet store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment info your clients submit will be encrypted and secure. The same is valid if you have a login form of some sort and you want the usernames and the passwords that visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which should be different from the one which you already have on the web server. You may also need an individual IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better performance for a certain Internet site, which will influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers include one dedicated IP address by default. An additional one is available as well - if they are ordered with an Internet hosting CP. In the event that you require more IPs, however, you shall be able to include them easily, regardless of the package which you've picked. You'll be able to do this during the signup process in case you need them from the beginning or through your billing account - in the event that you need them afterwards. The dedicated IPs will be assigned to your server soon after that and you'll be able to begin using them. You'll be able to renew the IPs along with the plan for so long as you intend to use them. This upgrade is incredibly useful not just for your personal content, but also in case you wish to use the virtual server to run a web hosting reseller business, because you will be able to offer a dedicated IP to every customer who would like to use one. There is no restriction on the number of addresses you could order or on how frequently you could do that.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated servers we offer feature 3 IP addresses by default and you may use them in any way you see fit. If you need even more IPs for any reason, you can add them to your server with just a few clicks with no limitations as to their number or the length of time for which you shall be able to employ them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in the event that you need the IPs right away, you'll be able to add them to the package during the signup process, while in case it turns out that you require more IPs at some point later on, you'll be able to order them just as effortlessly from your billing area and we will assign them to your dedicated server several minutes later. The dedicated IPs could be renewed together with the hosting server plan on a monthly basis and you can choose if you will renew all of them or just a few - if you no longer require that many. You can use the IPs both for your own Internet sites and for client hosting accounts - provided you are using the dedicated server as a hosting reseller platform.
