An IP address is a unique number which separates a website or a web server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used solely by your websites and will not be shared with other people as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. If you have your own server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for different uses. Provided you have an Internet store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, in order 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 sort and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which needs to be different from the one which you already have on the server. You could also need a separate IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better efficiency for a particular website, which will affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting
Every VPS web hosting service that we supply includes one dedicated IP address and if you add a web hosting Control Panel to it, we shall provide you with a second one at no additional cost, allowing you to use it as you see fit. If you need to use more IPs, you'll be able to order them with no more than two clicks anytime, since you will find this kind of an option both on our order page and within your billing CP. In the first case, the dedicated addresses shall be available the instant the virtual server is prepared, while in the second - a few minutes after you order them. You'll be able to renew the IPs together with your VPS plan and use them for so long as you need. They can prove useful not simply for your own websites, but also for the Internet sites of any customers which you may have if you are using the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business. There isn't any limitation on how frequently you can order additional IPs or on the amount of of them you'll be able to use with your server at any moment.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Each dedicated server we offer features 3 dedicated IP addresses supplied 100 % free on top of the monthly fee for the package. We also offer the chance to add more IPs to your web server both when you sign up and at a later time through your billing Control Panel, so you could order the IPs whenever you require them without a restriction on the amount or on how often you get them. They can be purchased in groups of three and shall be assigned to your server right away. You'll be able to renew them with the web hosting plan and you may choose if you will renew all of them, or a smaller amount - in the event that you no longer need the rest. Any dedicated IP address assigned to your hosting server could be used for any purpose: for a personal website, for a software server, or for a hosting client - if you've decided to start your own hosting enterprise and you're reselling accounts to other people.
