An IP address is a unique number which identifies a site or a web server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed just by your Internet sites and will not be shared with other people as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. In case you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for many different purposes. In case you have a web-based store, for example, you will need an SSL certificate for it, in order to ensure that the payment info your customers submit shall be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some kind and you wish the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which needs to be different from the one which you already have on the web server. You could 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 website, which shall influence 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 - if they are ordered with an Internet hosting Control Panel. In case you need more IPs, however, you shall be able to include them effortlessly, regardless of the plan that you have selected. You'll be able to do this during the signup procedure if you need them from the beginning or via your billing account - in the event that you need them afterwards. The dedicated IPs will be assigned to your hosting server right after that and you could begin using them. You may renew the IPs together with the plan for as long as you intend to use them. This upgrade is incredibly useful not only for your personal content, but also in the event that you want to use the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business, because you'll be able to offer a dedicated IP to any customer who wants to use one. There is no restriction on how many addresses you may order or on how often you'll be able to do that.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting
We give three free dedicated IP addresses with every dedicated server which we offer, but if you require more, you could order them with ease and they'll be assigned to your machine immediately. The upgrade is available both on our order page and in the billing Control Panel, so you could get additional IPs whenever you require them - in the beginning or anytime later. You may order the upgrade in increments of three and include as many IP addresses as you need at any time. You may renew just the IPs which you need along with the web hosting plan, so if, eventually, you need less IPs, you may simply renew those that you need and the other ones shall be removed from your server. With our upgrade, you'll be able to use a dedicated address not just for your websites and applications, but also for your clients’ Internet sites and applications - in case you're using the server to run a web hosting reseller enterprise. Any IP on top of the default 3 IPs may be used for as long as you need it.
