An IP address is a unique number which identifies a website or a server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be used solely by your websites and won't be shared with other individuals 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 extra ones for different uses. If you have a web-based store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment info your customers submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid if you have a login form of some sort and you wish the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which needs to be different from the one that you already have on the machine. You may also need an individual IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better overall performance for a given site, which will influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Our Linux VPS web hosting service include one dedicated IP address by default. A second one is available as well - in case they are ordered with a web hosting Control Panel. In case you need more IPs, however, you shall be able to add them effortlessly, whatever the plan which you've picked. You could do this during the signup process in the event that you need them from the beginning or through your billing account - if you need them afterwards. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your web server shortly after that and you'll be able to begin using them. You'll be able to renew the IPs together with the plan for so long as you plan to use them. This upgrade is incredibly useful not just for your personal content, but also if you wish to use the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business, because you shall be able to provide a dedicated IP to every customer who wants to use one. There isn't any restriction on how many addresses you can order or on how frequently you may do that.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server we offer features three dedicated IP addresses supplied free of charge on top of the monthly fee for the plan. We also provide you with the opportunity to add more IPs to your web server both when you sign up and at a later time via your billing Control Panel, so you could order the IPs whenever you need them without a limitation on the number or on how frequently you get them. They could be purchased in groups of three and will be assigned to your server immediately. You could renew them with the web hosting plan and you may choose if you'll renew all of them, or a smaller amount - if you no longer need the rest. Each and every dedicated IP address assigned to your server could be used for any purpose: for a personal site, for a software hosting server, or for a hosting client - in the event that you have decided to start out your own web hosting firm and you are reselling accounts to other people.
