An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes a website or a server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed exclusively by your sites and won't be shared with other people as it happens with shared hosting accounts. In case you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for a variety of uses. Provided you have an online store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, so as to ensure that the payment info which your customers submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some sort and you want the usernames and the passwords which visitors input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which needs to be different from the one that you already have on the machine. You may also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better performance for a certain website, which may influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
If you choose one of the VPS servers packages that we supply, you will get one dedicated IP address, and with every web server that's ordered with a CP, we provide a second one free of charge. If you'd like to use additional IPs, you could add them to your plan with a couple of mouse clicks whenever you want. If you require them at once, for instance, you could add them to your order and they'll be assigned to your VPS the minute it's set up. If you need them later, you could add them through your billing CP and they shall be available within a couple of minutes. You may assign them to personal websites with several clicks or to any of your customers - if you're using the virtual server to start out your own hosting business. You may take full advantage of this upgrade as often as you like and you may renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for as long as desired.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated servers which we offer include 3 IP addresses by default and you could use them in whatever way you see fit. In the event that you need additional IPs for any reason, you can add them to your hosting server with a couple of mouse clicks with no limits as to their number or the length of time for which you shall be able to employ them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in the event that you require the IPs right away, you can add them to the package deal during the signup process, while in the event that it turns out that you require more IPs at some point later, you can order them just as effortlessly through your billing area and we shall assign them to your dedicated server a couple of minutes later. The dedicated IPs can be renewed along with the web server plan on a monthly basis and you can determine if you will renew all of them or simply a few - in the event that you no longer need that many. You can use the IPs both for your own sites and for client hosting accounts - when you are using the dedicated server as a web hosting reseller platform.
