An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes a site or a server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used exclusively by your Internet sites and shall not be shared with other people as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. Provided you have your own hosting server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for a variety of purposes. If you have a web-based store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment info which your clients submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you want the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which ought to be different from the one that you already have on the machine. You could also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better overall performance for a given Internet site, which may influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
If you select one of the VPS servers solutions we supply, you shall get 1 dedicated IP address, and with any web server that's ordered with a CP, we give a second one totally free. If you'd like to use additional IPs, you are able to add them to your plan with just a couple of mouse clicks anytime. In the event that you require them immediately, for example, you could add them to your order and they'll be assigned to your VPS as soon as it's set up. If you need them later, you could add them through your billing CP and they shall be available within a few minutes. You'll be able to assign them to personal websites with a few clicks or to any of your customers - if you are using the virtual server to start your own hosting firm. You'll be able to 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 needed.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated servers which we offer feature 3 IP addresses by default and you'll be able to use them in any way you see fit. In case you require additional IPs for any reason, you could add them to your web server with several mouse clicks without restrictions as to their number or the period for which you'll be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in the event that you need the IPs right from the start, you can add them to the plan during the signup process, while in case it turns out that you require more IPs at some point afterwards, you could order them just as quickly using your billing area and we'll assign them to your dedicated server a few moments later. The dedicated IPs can be renewed with the hosting server plan on a monthly basis and you'll be able to choose if you shall renew all of them or just a few - in the event that you no longer need that many. You'll be able to use the IPs both for your own Internet sites and for customer hosting accounts - if you're using the dedicated server as a hosting reseller platform.
