An IP address is a unique number that separates an Internet site or a server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed solely by your sites and will not be shared with others as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. Provided you have your own server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for many different uses. Provided you have an online store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, 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 kind and you want the usernames and the passwords that visitors enter to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which has to be different from the one that you already have on the server. You could also need an individual IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better overall performance for a given website, which shall affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

Our VPS web hosting service provide one dedicated IP address by default. A second one is available also - if they are ordered with a web hosting Control Panel. If you require more IPs, however, you shall be able to include them easily, whatever the package which you've picked. You may do this during the signup procedure if you need them from the start or through your billing account - in case you need them later on. The dedicated IPs will be assigned to your web server shortly after that and you can begin using them. You could renew the IPs along with the plan for so long as you intend to use them. This upgrade is incredibly useful not just for your personal content, but also in the event that you wish to use the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business, because you'll be able to provide a dedicated IP to every customer who wants to use one. There is no restriction on the number of addresses you could order or on how frequently you could do that.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

If you obtain one of our dedicated server solutions, you will get three IP addresses at no additional charge and you could use them for any purpose. If you require even more IPs, you may request them anytime via your billing area and we will assign them to the server a few moments later. You can even get more IPs during the signup process and they shall be available on your machine the moment it's all set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of 3 and you could decide how many addresses you'll order and how long you'll use them, as you will be able to select the number of IPs which you will renew every month with your web server plan. Any IP address that's assigned to your dedicated server could be used not just for your personal content, but for any site or application that your clients may have - if you have purchased the hosting server with the goal to resell the disk space to third parties.
