An IP address is a unique number which identifies an Internet site or a hosting server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed exclusively by your websites and shall not be shared with other people as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. If you have your own hosting server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for various purposes. If you have an online store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make sure that the payment info that your customers submit shall be encrypted and safe. 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 type in to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which ought to be different from the one which you already have on the server. You might also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better performance for a given Internet site, which shall affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting
Our VPS web hosting services come with one dedicated IP address by default. A second one is available too - in case they are ordered with an Internet hosting Control Panel. In the event that you require more IPs, however, you shall be able to add them with ease, whatever the plan that you have picked. You can do this during the signup procedure in the event that you need them from the start or through your billing account - in the event that you need them afterwards. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your web server soon after that and you can begin using them. You'll be able to renew the IPs along with the plan for as long as you want to use them. This upgrade is incredibly useful not only for your personal content, but also in case you intend to use the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business, since you'll be able to supply a dedicated IP to every client who would like to use one. There isn't any restriction on the amount of addresses you'll be able to order or on how often you could do that.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Every single dedicated server that we offer includes 3 dedicated IP addresses provided 100 % free on top of the monthly fee for the package deal. We also offer the chance to add more IPs to your web server both when you sign up and at a later time through your billing CP, so you can order the IPs whenever you require them without a limitation on the amount or on how frequently you get them. They can be purchased in groups of 3 and will be assigned to your server immediately. You may renew them with the hosting plan and you can choose if you'll renew all of them, or a smaller number - if you no longer require the rest. Any dedicated IP address allotted to your server could be used for any purpose: for a personal site, for a software web server, or for a hosting customer - in the event that you have decided to start off your own Internet hosting business and you are reselling accounts to other people.
