An IP address is a unique number that separates an Internet site or a hosting server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used exclusively by your Internet sites and will not be shared with others as it happens with shared hosting accounts. In case you have your own server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for many different purposes. Provided you have a web-based store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment info which your customers submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you wish the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which has to be different from the one which you already have on the web server. You could also need an independent IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better overall performance for a given Internet site, which will affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Each and every VPS server plan we provide features one dedicated IP address and if you add a web hosting Control Panel to it, we will supply you with a second one at no additional cost, so you can use it the way you see fit. If you need to use more IPs, you'll be able to order them with no more than 2 clicks anytime, as you will locate this kind of an option both on our order page and inside your billing CP. In the first case, the dedicated addresses will be available the instant the virtual server is set, while in the second - a couple of minutes after you buy them. You could renew the IPs along with your VPS plan and use them for as long as you desire. They can be useful not only for your own Internet sites, but also for the sites of any clients that you might have if you're using the virtual server to run a web hosting reseller business. There isn't any limit on how many times you'll be able to order additional IPs or on the number of of them you could use with your hosting server at any time.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
We supply 3 free dedicated IP addresses with every single dedicated server which we offer, but in case you need more, you could order them without difficulty and they will be assigned to your hosting server immediately. The upgrade can be purchased both on our order page and within the billing CP, so you can get additional IPs whenever you need them - in the very beginning or anytime later on. You could order the upgrade in increments of three and include as many IP addresses as you need at any given time. You may renew just the IPs which you need along with the website hosting plan, so if, at one point, you need less IPs, you can simply renew those which you need and the other ones will be removed from your server. With our upgrade, you can use a dedicated address not only for your Internet sites and applications, but also for your clients’ sites and apps - in case you're using the machine to run an Internet hosting reseller company. Any IP on top of the default three IPs could be used for as long as you need it.
