An IP address is a unique number that separates a website or a server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed solely by your Internet sites and shall not be shared with others as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. If you have your own web server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for different purposes. In case you have a web-based store, for example, you will need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make certain that the payment info which your clients submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which should be different from the one that you already have on the web server. You may also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better efficiency for a certain site, which may affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS
If you choose one of the virtual private servers plans that we provide, you'll get one dedicated IP address, and with any server that's ordered with a Control Panel, we supply a second one absolutely free. If you would like to use additional IPs, you may add them to your plan with only a few mouse clicks anytime. If you require them immediately, for example, you are able to add them to your order and they'll be assigned to your VPS the minute it is set up. In case you need them later, you'll be able to add them using your billing CP and they'll be available within a matter of minutes. You could assign them to personal sites with several mouse clicks or to any of your clients - if you are using the virtual server to start your own web hosting business. You may take advantage of this upgrade as often as you wish and you'll be able to renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for so long as needed.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting
All dedicated hosting that we offer include 3 IP addresses by default and you could use them in any way you see fit. In case you need additional IPs for any reason, you can add them to your hosting server with just a few mouse clicks with no limitations as to their number or the length of time for which you will be able to employ them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in the event that you require the IPs straight away, you could add them to the package during the signup process, while in the event that it turns out that you require more IPs at some point afterwards, you'll be able to 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 could be renewed along with the web server plan on a monthly basis and you'll be able to determine if you shall renew all of them or simply a few - in the event that you no longer require that many. You could use the IPs both for your own Internet sites and for client hosting accounts - provided you're using the dedicated server as a web hosting reseller platform.
