An IP address is a unique number that identifies a website or a hosting server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed solely by your websites and shall not be shared with other people as it happens with shared hosting accounts. If you have your own web server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional 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 make certain that the payment information your customers submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some sort and you would like the usernames and the passwords that visitors input to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which should be different from the one that you already have on the server. You might also need an independent IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better efficiency for a given Internet site, which will influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Every VPS server service that we offer features 1 dedicated IP address and if you add a web hosting Control Panel to it, we will supply you with a second one at no additional cost, allowing you to use it the way you see fit. If you would like to use more IPs, you'll be able to order them with no more than 2 mouse clicks whenever you want, since you'll find this kind of an option both on our order page and inside your billing CP. In the first case, the dedicated addresses will be available the minute the virtual server is set, while in the second - a few minutes after you purchase them. You could renew the IPs along with your VPS plan and use them for so long as you'd like. They can prove useful not only for your own Internet sites, but also for the websites of any customers which you may have in case you're using the virtual server to run a web hosting reseller business. There isn't a restriction on how often you could order additional IPs or on the amount of of them you can use with your machine at any given time.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
We supply three free dedicated IP addresses with each and every dedicated server that we offer, but if you require more, you may order them effortlessly and they will be assigned to your server at once. The upgrade can be purchased both on our order page and within the billing CP, so you can get additional IPs whenever you need them - in the very beginning or anytime later on. You may order the upgrade in increments of three and add as many IP addresses as you want at any time. You could renew only the IPs which you need along with the Internet hosting plan, so if, at some point, you need less IPs, you may 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 just for your websites and apps, but also for your clients’ sites and applications - if you're using the machine to run an Internet hosting reseller business. Any IP on top of the default three IPs can be employed for as long as you need it.
