An IP address is a unique number that identifies a site or a hosting server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used solely by your sites and will not be shared with other people as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. In case you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for many different uses. If you have an electronic store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, to ensure that the payment information your clients submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you wish the usernames and the passwords which visitors input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which needs to be different from the one which you already have on the hosting server. You could also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better performance for a certain website, which shall affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Hosting
Our Linux VPS hosting come with one dedicated IP address by default. Another one is available as well - in case they are ordered with an Internet hosting CP. In case you need more IPs, however, you shall be able to include them effortlessly, regardless of the package which you have selected. You could do this during the signup process if you need them from the start or through your billing account - if you need them later. The dedicated IPs will be assigned to your web server soon 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 quite useful not simply for your personal content, but also when you wish to use the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business, since you'll be able to provide a dedicated IP to every client who would like to use one. There isn't a restriction on how many addresses you'll be able to order or on how often you could do that.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting
We provide three 100 % free dedicated IP addresses with each and every dedicated server that we offer, but if you require more, you'll be able to order them effortlessly and they shall be assigned to your server immediately. The upgrade can be acquired both on our order page and within the billing Control Panel, so you'll be able to get additional IPs whenever you require them - in the very beginning or anytime later on. You can order the upgrade in increments of three and add as many IP addresses as you require at any moment. You could renew just the IPs that you want along with the Internet hosting plan, so if, eventually, you need less IPs, you may simply renew those which you need and the other ones will be removed from your web server. With our upgrade, you could use a dedicated address not just for your Internet sites and applications, but also for your clients’ sites and apps - in the event that you're using the server to run a hosting reseller business. Any IP on top of the default three IPs may be used for so long as you need it.
