An IP address is a unique number that separates an Internet site or a hosting server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed exclusively by your sites and won't be shared with others as it happens with shared hosting accounts. Provided you have your own hosting server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for various uses. Provided you have an Internet store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make certain that the payment info which your customers submit will be encrypted and secure. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you want the usernames and the passwords which visitors input to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which ought to be different from the one which you already have on the hosting 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 certain Internet site, which shall influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Our Linux VPS servers 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 the event that you require more IPs, however, you will be able to include them with ease, whatever the package that you have selected. You'll be able to do this during the signup process in case you need them from the very beginning or via your billing account - in case you need them afterwards. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your server soon after that and you can begin using them. You could renew the IPs along with the plan for so long as you intend to use them. This upgrade is extremely useful not only for your personal content, but also in case you would like to use the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business, because you'll be able to supply a dedicated IP to any client who would want to use one. There's no restriction on how many addresses you could order or on how many times you could do that.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated servers that we offer include three IP addresses by default and you can use them in any way you see fit. In the event that you need even more IPs for any reason, you can add them to your server with several clicks without any limitations as to their number or the duration for which you'll be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in the event that you need the IPs straight away, you could add them to the plan during the signup process, while if it turns out that you need more IPs at some point later, you could order them just as easily using your billing area and we'll assign them to your dedicated server a few minutes later. The dedicated IPs can be renewed with the web server plan on a monthly basis and you can determine if you will renew all of them or only a few - in the event that you no longer require that many. You can use the IPs both for your own websites and for customer hosting accounts - if you're using the dedicated server as an Internet hosting reseller platform.
