An IP address is a unique number that separates a site or a hosting server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed only by your websites and shall not be shared with other people as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. If you have your own web server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for a variety of uses. Provided you have a web-based store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment info your clients submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some kind and you wish the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which has to be different from the one that you already have on the server. You could also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better functionality for a certain Internet site, which shall influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Every single VPS server plan which we offer features 1 dedicated IP address and if you add an Internet hosting CP to it, we'll supply you with a second one at no additional cost, so that you can use it as you see fit. If you would like to use more IPs, you will be able to order them with only two mouse clicks at any time, as you will discover this sort of an option both on our order page and in your billing Control Panel. In the first case, the dedicated addresses will be available as soon as the virtual server is prepared, while in the second - a few minutes after you order them. You could renew the IPs together with your VPS plan and use them for so long as you want. They can come in handy not only for your own sites, but also for the sites of any clients which you could have in the event that you are using the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business. There isn't a limitation on how often you'll be able to order additional IPs or on how many of them you could use with your machine at any given time.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
We give three totally free dedicated IP addresses with every dedicated server which we offer, but if you require more, you may order them easily and they'll be assigned to your machine immediately. The upgrade is available both on our order page and within the billing CP, so you could get additional IPs whenever you need them - in the beginning or at any time later on. You can order the upgrade in increments of three and include as many IP addresses as you want at any given time. You could renew just the IPs that you need together with the web hosting plan, so if, at some point, you need less IPs, you could simply renew those which you need and the other ones shall be removed from your server. With our upgrade, you can use a dedicated address not only for your Internet sites and apps, but also for your clients’ websites and apps - if you are using the server to run a hosting reseller enterprise. Any IP on top of the default 3 IPs could be used for as long as you require it.
