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 exclusively by your websites and shall not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. If you have your own server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for different uses. In case you have an online store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make certain that the payment information your clients submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you would like 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 may also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better functionality for a given website, which will affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Each VPS server service we provide features one dedicated IP address and if you add a hosting CP to it, we will give you a second one at no additional cost, so you can use it the way you see fit. If you want to use more IPs, you shall be able to order them with just two mouse clicks anytime, since you will discover this type of an option both on our order page and in your billing CP. In the first case, the dedicated addresses shall be available the instant the virtual server is ready, while in the second - a few moments after you purchase them. You'll be able to renew the IPs along with your VPS plan and use them for so long as you desire. They can be useful not simply for your own Internet sites, but also for the Internet sites of any clients which you might have in the event that you are using the virtual server to run a web hosting reseller business. There's no limit on how frequently you'll be able to order additional IPs or on the amount of of them you'll be able to use with your machine at any moment.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated service which we offer come with 3 IP addresses by default and you could use them in whatever way you see fit. In case you require additional IPs for any reason, you may add them to your hosting server with just a few mouse clicks with no limits as to their number or the length of time for which you will be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and if you need the IPs right from the start, you may add them to the plan during the signup process, while in the event that it turns out that you require more IPs at some point afterwards, you can order them just as effortlessly from your billing area and we shall assign them to your dedicated server a few minutes later. The dedicated IPs may be renewed along with the web server plan on a monthly basis and you could choose if you shall 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 client hosting accounts - provided you are using the dedicated server as a web hosting reseller platform.
