An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes a site or a web server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed exclusively by your websites and will not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared hosting accounts. If you have your own hosting server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for a variety of uses. If you have a web-based store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment information that your clients submit will be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some sort and you would like the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which should be different from the one that you already have on the machine. You may also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better overall performance for a given site, which will affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Hosting
Our VPS hosting services feature one dedicated IP address by default. Another one is available also - when they are ordered with an Internet hosting CP. In case you need more IPs, however, you'll be able to include them effortlessly, regardless of the package which you've chosen. You could do this during the signup procedure if you need them from the start or using your billing account - if you need them later on. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your server right after that and you could start using them. You could renew the IPs together with the plan for so long as you want to use them. This upgrade is incredibly useful not just for your personal content, but also in the event that you wish to use the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business, because you will be able to supply a dedicated IP to every customer who would want to use one. There isn't any restriction on how many addresses you'll be able to order or on how often you could do that.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you acquire one of our dedicated server solutions, you'll get three IP addresses at no additional charge and you could use them for any purpose. If you need more IPs, you could request them anytime via your billing area and we will assign them to the hosting server a couple of minutes later. You can even get additional IPs during the signup procedure and they will be available on your machine as soon as it's all set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you can pick how many addresses you'll order and how long you shall use them, as you can choose the number of IPs which you'll renew each month with your web server plan. Any IP address that is assigned to your dedicated server could be used not just for your personal content, but also for any Internet site or application that your customers may have - if you have purchased the server with the intention to resell the disk space to third parties.
