An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes a website or a server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed solely by your websites and will not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared hosting accounts. If you have your own server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for many different uses. If you have an online store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make certain that the payment info which your customers submit will be encrypted and safe. The same is valid if you have a login form of some sort and you wish the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which ought to be different from the one that you already have on the machine. You may also need a separate IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better efficiency for a particular website, which may affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting
If you select one of the virtual private servers packages we provide, you'll get 1 dedicated IP address, and with every web server that's ordered with a Control Panel, we provide a second one free of charge. If you'd like to use additional IPs, you could add them to your plan with only a few mouse clicks whenever you want. In case you need them immediately, for instance, you can add them to your order and they will be assigned to your VPS the instant it's set up. If you need them later, you can add them using your billing CP and they shall be available within a matter of minutes. You could assign them to personal sites with several clicks or to any of your clients - if you're using the virtual server to start your own web hosting business. You may take full advantage of this upgrade as often as you like and you'll be able to renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for so long as needed.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting
We provide three free dedicated IP addresses with each and every dedicated server which we offer, but in the event that you require more, you can order them easily and they shall be assigned to your web server at once. The upgrade can be acquired both on our order page and inside the billing CP, so you can get additional IPs whenever you require them - in the very beginning or anytime later on. You may order the upgrade in increments of three and add as many IP addresses as you want at any given time. You'll be able to renew just the IPs which you want along with the Internet hosting plan, so if, eventually, you need less IPs, you may simply renew those that you need and the other ones will be removed from your server. With our upgrade, you'll be able to use a dedicated address not only for your websites and apps, but also for your clients’ Internet sites and apps - in the event that you're using the machine to run a web hosting reseller company. Any IP on top of the default 3 IPs may be used for so long as you need it.
