An IP address is a unique number which separates a website or a server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used only by your Internet sites and shall not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. In case you have your own hosting server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for many different purposes. If you have an Internet store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make certain that the payment info your customers submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you want the usernames and the passwords that visitors input to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which has to be different from the one which you already have on the machine. You may also need an individual IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better functionality for a certain website, which will influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
If you select one of the VPS servers solutions we provide, you'll get one dedicated IP address, and with every hosting server that's ordered with a Control Panel, we supply a second one at no extra cost. If you wish to use additional IPs, you'll be able to add them to your package with only several mouse clicks whenever you want. If you require them immediately, for instance, you'll be able to add them to your order and they'll be assigned to your VPS as soon as it's set up. If you need them later, you may add them via your billing CP and they'll be available within a matter of minutes. You could assign them to personal websites with a few clicks or to any of your customers - if you're using the virtual server to launch your own hosting business. You'll be able to take advantage of this upgrade as often as you like and you may renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for so long as desired.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
All Linux dedicated service which we offer feature 3 IP addresses by default and you can use them in whatever way you see fit. If you need more IPs for any reason, you could add them to your server with several clicks without limits as to their number or the duration for which you'll be able to employ them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in case you require the IPs right from the start, you could add them to the plan during the signup process, while if it turns out that you require more IPs at some point afterwards, you could order them just as quickly through your billing area and we shall assign them to your dedicated server several minutes later. The dedicated IPs can be renewed together with the hosting server plan on a monthly basis and you could choose if you shall renew all of them or just a few - in the event that you no longer require that many. You could use the IPs both for your own sites and for client hosting accounts - if you are using the dedicated server as a hosting reseller platform.
