An IP address is a unique number that separates an Internet site or a server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed just by your sites and will not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. Provided you have your own web server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for different uses. Provided you have a web-based store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make certain that the payment information your clients submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some type and you wish the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which should be different from the one that you already have on the machine. You might also need an independent IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better overall performance for a particular Internet site, which will affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting
If you order one of our VPS web hosting
, we'll provide you with one dedicated IP address by default and a second one free of charge - if you add any one of the hosting Control Panels that we offer to your order. Some other IPs can be purchased easily if you need them. The option is offered on the order page, so in the event that you require more IPs right away, we can assign them to your VPS the instant it is set up and you can use them the moment you begin using the hosting server. If you require them for any reason later, you can order them through the billing area and they will be available in a matter of minutes. This way, you can assign dedicated IP addresses not only to your own websites, but also to clients' sites in case you've launched a reseller business. You can order IPs as often as required and renew them along with your virtual server plan. If, eventually, you require less IPs, you shall have the opportunity to renew just those that you need, while the extra ones will be taken off your server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When you acquire one of our dedicated server
solutions, you'll get three IP addresses at no additional charge and you'll be able to use them for any purpose. If you need more IPs, you can request them at any time through your billing area and we will assign them to the hosting server a few minutes later. You may also get more IPs during the signup procedure and they'll be available on your server the moment it is set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you can decide how many addresses you'll order and how long you will use them, since you could select the number of IPs that you will renew each month with your server plan. Any IP address that is assigned to your dedicated server can be used not just for your personal content, but also for any website or app your clients may have - if you have obtained the server with the intent to resell the disk space to third parties.
