An IP address is a unique number that identifies an Internet site or a web server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used exclusively by your sites and will not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. Provided you have your own server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for a variety of uses. In case you have an electronic store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, so as to ensure that the payment info that your customers submit shall be encrypted and protected. The same is valid if you have a login form of some type and you want the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which needs to be different from the one which you already have on the hosting server. You could also need a separate IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better functionality for a given site, which may affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
If you select one of the VPS servers plans we provide, you will get 1 dedicated IP address, and with any server which is ordered with a Control Panel, we supply a second one free of charge. If you wish to use additional IPs, you could add them to your plan with just a couple of mouse clicks at any time. In the event that you require them right away, for instance, you can add them to your order and they'll be assigned to your VPS the instant it's set up. If you need them later, you can add them through your billing Control Panel and they shall be available within a few minutes. You may assign them to personal Internet sites with a few mouse clicks or to any of your clients - if you're using the virtual server to launch your own web hosting company. You could benefit from this upgrade as often as you wish and you can renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for so long as desired.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
We give three 100 % free dedicated IP addresses with each dedicated server that we offer, but if you need more, you'll be able to order them without difficulty and they'll be assigned to your server at once. The upgrade can be acquired both on our order page and inside the billing Control Panel, so you'll be able to 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'll be able to renew just the IPs which you want together with the hosting plan, so if, at some point, you need less IPs, you may simply renew those you need and the other ones will be removed from your hosting server. With our upgrade, you can use a dedicated address not only for your websites and applications, but also for your clients’ sites and apps - if you are using the server to run a web hosting reseller enterprise. Any IP on top of the default 3 IPs could be employed for as long as you need it.
