An IP address is a unique number that separates a website or a server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used solely by your websites and won't be shared with others as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. If you have your own hosting server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for different uses. Provided you have an electronic store, for example, you will need an SSL certificate for it, in order to ensure that the payment info which your customers submit will be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some type and you want the usernames and the passwords that visitors enter to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which ought to be different from the one which you already have on the server. You might also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better functionality for a certain website, which will affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers feature one dedicated IP address by default. Another one is available as well - when they are ordered with a web hosting CP. If you need more IPs, however, you shall be able to add them with ease, no matter the package that you have chosen. You may do this during the signup procedure in case you need them from the start or via your billing account - in case you need them later. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your server shortly after that and you'll be able to begin using them. You may renew the IPs along with the plan for so long as you plan to use them. This upgrade is extremely useful not just for your personal content, but also in the event that you want to use the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business, because you'll be able to provide a dedicated IP to every customer who wants to use one. There isn't a restriction on the number of addresses you may order or on how many times you could do that.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated servers which we offer include three IP addresses by default and you can use them in whatever way you see fit. In the event that you require more IPs for any reason, you could add them to your hosting server with a couple of clicks with no 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 if you need the IPs right from the start, you could add them to the plan during the signup process, while in case it turns out that you need more IPs at some point later, you may order them just as simply via your billing area and we'll assign them to your dedicated server several minutes later. The dedicated IPs could be renewed along with the web server plan on a monthly basis and you could determine 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 Internet sites and for customer hosting accounts - when you are using the dedicated server as an Internet hosting reseller platform.
