An IP address is a unique number which separates an Internet site or a web server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed only by your Internet sites and won't be shared with other people as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. Provided you have your own web server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for many different purposes. If you have a web-based store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, to ensure that the payment information your clients submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some sort and you want the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which should be different from the one that you already have on the hosting server. You might also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better performance for a particular website, which may affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Every single VPS server service we supply includes one dedicated IP address and if you add an Internet hosting Control Panel to it, we'll provide you with a second one at no additional cost, so you can use it as you see fit. If you would like to use more IPs, you'll be able to order them with just a couple of mouse clicks whenever you want, since you will find this type of an option both on our order page and in your billing CP. In the first case, the dedicated addresses shall be available as soon as the virtual server is prepared, while in the second - a couple of minutes after you buy them. You can renew the IPs along with your VPS plan and use them for so long as you desire. They can prove useful not only for your own sites, but also for the sites of any clients which you may have in the event that you're using the virtual server to run a web hosting reseller business. There isn't a limit on how frequently you can order additional IPs or on the amount of of them you'll be able to use with your web server at any moment.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated servers which we offer include three IP addresses by default and you'll be able to use them in whatever way you see fit. If you need additional IPs for any reason, you can add them to your hosting server with several clicks without any limitations as to their number or the duration for which you shall be able to employ them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in case you need the IPs right from the start, you'll be able to add them to the plan during the signup procedure, while in case it turns out that you need more IPs at some point later on, you could order them just as effortlessly via your billing area and we shall assign them to your dedicated server a few minutes later. The dedicated IPs may be renewed with the web server plan on a monthly basis and you could choose if you will renew all of them or only a few - in case you no longer need that many. You could use the IPs both for your own sites and for customer hosting accounts - if you are using the dedicated server as an Internet hosting reseller platform.
