An IP address is a unique number which separates an Internet site or a server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed solely by your sites and shall not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. If you have your own server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for many different uses. If you have an online store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, in order to ensure that the payment info which your customers submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in the event that 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 hosting server. You could also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better functionality for a given website, which may affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Hosting
If you opt for one of the virtual private servers plans we offer, you'll get one dedicated IP address, and with every hosting server that is ordered with a Control Panel, we supply a second one totally free. If you'd like to use additional IPs, you'll be able to add them to your package with a few mouse clicks anytime. If you require them immediately, for instance, you are able to add them to your order and they'll be assigned to your VPS the minute it's set up. In case you need them later, you can add them through your billing CP and they'll be available within a matter of minutes. You'll be able to assign them to personal sites with several mouse clicks or to any of your clients - if you're using the virtual server to start out your own Internet hosting business. You may take advantage of this upgrade as often as you like and you can renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for so long as required.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting
Every single dedicated server we offer includes three dedicated IP addresses supplied absolutely free on top of the monthly fee for the package. We also give you the chance to add more IPs to your server both when you sign up and at a later time through your billing CP, so you could order the IPs whenever you require them with no restriction on the number or on how frequently you get them. They could be purchased in groups of 3 and will be assigned to your server instantly. You can renew them with the hosting plan and you could choose if you'll renew all of them, or a smaller number - if you no longer require the rest. Each and every dedicated IP address allotted to your web server could be used for any purpose: for a personal site, for a software hosting server, or for a hosting client - in case you've decided to launch your own hosting firm and you are reselling accounts to other people.
