An IP address is a unique number that identifies an Internet site or a server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed exclusively by your sites and shall not be shared with others as it happens with shared hosting accounts. Provided you have your own server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for a variety of uses. If you have a web-based store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, to make certain that the payment information that your clients submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid if you have a login form of some sort and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which should be different from the one which you already have on the server. You may also need an individual IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better efficiency for a particular Internet site, which will affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS
If you opt for one of the virtual private servers plans that we provide, you will get one dedicated IP address, and with any hosting server which is ordered with a CP, we give a second one at no extra cost. If you would like to use additional IPs, you may add them to your plan with only a few mouse clicks at any time. If you require them immediately, for instance, you'll be able to add them to your order and they shall be assigned to your VPS the instant it's set up. In case you need them later, you can add them via your billing CP and they will be available within a few minutes. You could assign them to personal sites with a couple of mouse clicks or to any of your clients - if you are using the virtual server to start out your own hosting firm. You could take full advantage of this upgrade as often as you want and you could renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for so long as needed.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting
All dedicated hosting which we offer feature three IP addresses by default and you may use them in any way you see fit. In the event that you require even more IPs for any reason, you may add them to your hosting server with a few mouse clicks without any limits as to their number or to the period for which you will be able to employ them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in case you require the IPs right from the start, you may add them to the package during the signup process, while in case it turns out that you require more IPs at some point later on, you could order them just as quickly via your billing area and we'll assign them to your dedicated server a couple of minutes later. The dedicated IPs could be renewed together with the web server plan on a monthly basis and you could decide if you shall renew all of them or simply a few - if you no longer need that many. You may 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.
