An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes a site or a hosting server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed just by your websites and won't be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared hosting accounts. If you have your own server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for different uses. In case you have an Internet store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make certain that the payment information that your clients submit will be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some kind and you wish the usernames and the passwords that visitors enter 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 machine. You might also need an individual IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better overall performance for a certain website, which shall affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting
Our VPS web hosting services include one dedicated IP address by default. An additional one is available also - in case they are ordered with an Internet hosting CP. If you require more IPs, however, you'll be able to include them easily, regardless of the plan which you have picked. You can do this during the signup process in the event that you need them from the start or through your billing account - if you need them afterwards. The dedicated IPs will be assigned to your web server soon after that and you can begin using them. You can renew the IPs together with the plan for as long as you intend to use them. This upgrade is very useful not just for your personal content, but also in the event that you intend to use the virtual server to run a web hosting reseller business, considering that you shall be able to provide a dedicated IP to any client who would like to use one. There isn't any restriction on the number of addresses you can order or on how often you can do that.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting
We supply 3 absolutely free dedicated IP addresses with every single dedicated server that we offer, but in the event that you require more, you can order them easily and they will be assigned to your server without delay. The upgrade can be purchased both on our order page and within the billing Control Panel, so you could get additional IPs whenever you need them - in the beginning or anytime later. You could order the upgrade in increments of three and add as many IP addresses as you want at any given time. You can renew only the IPs that you want together with the Internet hosting plan, so if, at some point, you need less IPs, you could simply renew those you need and the other ones will be removed from your web server. With our upgrade, you'll be able to use a dedicated address not only for your websites and applications, but also for your clients’ Internet sites and applications - if you are using the machine to run a hosting reseller business. Any IP on top of the default three IPs could be employed for as long as you require it.
