An IP address is a unique number that separates a website or a hosting server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed solely by your Internet sites and won't be shared with other people as it happens with shared hosting accounts. If you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for various purposes. In case you have an online store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make certain that the payment info your customers submit will be encrypted and safe. The same is valid if you have a login form of some type and you want the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which should be different from the one that you already have on the machine. You could also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better efficiency for a given website, which may influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting
If you select one of the virtual private servers plans that we offer, you shall get 1 dedicated IP address, and with any hosting server that is ordered with a CP, we give a second one absolutely free. If you wish to use additional IPs, you may add them to your package with just several mouse clicks anytime. In the event that you need them immediately, for instance, you may add them to your order and they'll be assigned to your VPS as soon as it is set up. If you need them later, you may add them via your billing Control Panel and they shall be available within a few minutes. You can assign them to personal sites with a few mouse clicks or to any of your customers - if you're using the virtual server to start out your own web hosting firm. You can take full advantage of this upgrade as often as you wish and you could renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for as long as desired.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Every single dedicated server we offer includes 3 dedicated IP addresses supplied 100 % free on top of the monthly fee for the package. We also supply you with the opportunity to add more IPs to your hosting server both when you sign up and at a later time via your billing CP, so you may order the IPs whenever you require them without a limit on the amount or on how frequently you get them. They can be purchased in groups of three and will be assigned to your server instantly. You'll be able to renew them with the hosting plan and you'll be able to choose if you'll renew all of them, or a smaller number - in case you no longer need the rest. Each and every dedicated IP address assigned to your hosting server can be used for any purpose: for a personal site, for a software hosting server, or for a hosting customer - in case you have decided to start off your own hosting firm and you're reselling accounts to other people.
