An IP address is a unique number that separates an Internet site or a server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used exclusively by your websites and shall not be shared with others as it happens with shared hosting accounts. In case you have your own web server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for different purposes. In case you have an online store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make sure that the payment info which your clients submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some type and you wish the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which has to be different from the one which you already have on the machine. You could also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better efficiency for a particular Internet site, which will affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Hosting
If you choose to order one of our Linux VPS hosting packages, we'll provide you with one dedicated IP address by default and a second one totally free - in the event that you add any one of the hosting Control Panels which we offer to your order. More IPs can be purchased easily if you require them. The option is offered on the order page, so in the event that you require more IPs from the beginning, we shall be able to assign them to your VPS the instant it's set up and you can use them the instant you start using the machine. If you require them for any reason later, you can order them through the billing area and they will be available in a few minutes. In this way, you shall be able to assign dedicated IP addresses not only to your own sites, but also to customers' websites provided you've started a reseller business. You could order IPs as frequently as required and renew them along with your virtual web server plan. If, eventually, you need less IPs, you'll have the chance to renew only those which you need, while the extra ones will be removed from your machine.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting
We provide three 100 % free dedicated IP addresses with each and every dedicated server which we offer, but if you require more, you could order them without difficulty and they will be assigned to your server immediately. The upgrade can be acquired both on our order page and in the billing CP, so you'll be able to get additional IPs whenever you require them - in the beginning or anytime afterwards. You could order the upgrade in increments of three and include as many IP addresses as you require at any time. You may renew just the IPs that you want along with the web hosting plan, so if, eventually, you need less IPs, you can simply renew those you need and the other ones will be removed from your server. With our upgrade, you'll be able to use a dedicated address not just for your Internet sites and apps, but also for your clients’ websites and applications - in the event that you're using the server to run an Internet hosting reseller company. Any IP on top of the default 3 IPs may be used for so long as you require it.
