An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes a website or a hosting server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used just by your sites and will not be shared with other people as it happens with shared hosting accounts. Provided you have your own web server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for different uses. If you have an online store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment info which your customers submit will be encrypted and safe. 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 type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which ought to be different from the one which you already have on the server. You may also need an independent IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better overall performance for a certain Internet site, which will affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
If you buy one of our Linux VPS web hosting service, we'll supply you with one dedicated IP address by default and a second one absolutely free - in case you add any of the hosting Control Panels that we offer to your order. More IPs could be purchased with ease in the event that you need them. The option is provided on the order page, so in the event that you need more IPs from the start, we shall be able to assign them to your VPS as soon as it is put in place and you can use them the moment you start using the web server. If you require them for any reason later on, you can order them from the billing area and they'll be available in a few minutes. That way, you can assign dedicated IP addresses not only to your own sites, but also to clients' websites provided you've started out a reseller enterprise. You'll be able to order IPs as frequently as required and renew them together with your virtual web server plan. If, sooner or later, you need less IPs, you shall have the chance to renew only those that you need, while the extra ones shall be removed from your server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated servers we offer feature three IP addresses by default and you can use them in any way you see fit. If you require more IPs for any reason, you can add them to your web server with a couple of clicks without 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 if you need the IPs right away, you may add them to the package during the signup procedure, while in the event that it turns out that you require more IPs at some point later, you could order them just as simply from your billing area and we'll assign them to your dedicated server a few minutes later. The dedicated IPs may be renewed with the server plan on a monthly basis and you could decide if you'll renew all of them or just a few - if you no longer need that many. You can use the IPs both for your own Internet sites and for customer hosting accounts - if you are using the dedicated server as a web hosting reseller platform.
