An IP address is a unique number which identifies a website or a server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used just by your websites and shall not be shared with others as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. If you have your own hosting server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for various uses. Provided you have an online store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make certain that the payment information your customers submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in case 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 ought to be different from the one that you already have on the web server. You could also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better overall performance for a certain website, which shall influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting
Our Linux VPS web hosting
provide one dedicated IP address by default. A second one is available as well - if they are ordered with a web hosting Control Panel. In case you require more IPs, however, you'll be able to incorporate them easily, whatever the package which you've chosen. You can do this during the signup process in the event that you need them from the very beginning or through your billing account - in case you need them later. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your hosting server shortly after that and you can start 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 want to use the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business, because you shall be able to offer a dedicated IP to every client who would like to use one. There is no restriction on the number of addresses you'll be able to order or on how often you may do that.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting
We give three totally free dedicated IP addresses with every dedicated server
that we offer, but if you require more, you could order them with ease and they shall be assigned to your web server immediately. The upgrade can be purchased both on our order page and inside the billing Control Panel, so you could get additional IPs whenever you need them - in the very beginning or anytime later. You may order the upgrade in increments of three and include as many IP addresses as you want at any 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 can simply renew those which you need and the other ones shall be removed from your web server. With our upgrade, you can use a dedicated address not only for your sites and apps, but also for your clients’ sites and applications - in case you are using the machine to run an Internet hosting reseller company. Any IP on top of the default three IPs could be employed for as long as you need it.
