An IP address is a unique number which identifies a website or a hosting server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it will be used just by your Internet sites and will not be shared with others as it happens with shared hosting accounts. Provided you have your own hosting server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for many different purposes. Provided you have a web-based store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, so as to ensure that the payment information which your customers submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some sort and you wish the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which has to be different from the one which you already have on the hosting server. You could also need a separate 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 Servers
If you select one of the VPS servers solutions that we provide, you will get one dedicated IP address, and with any web server which is ordered with a Control Panel, we give a second one absolutely free. If you would like to use additional IPs, you are able to add them to your plan with a few mouse clicks at any time. In case you require them at once, for example, you'll be able to add them to your order and they shall be assigned to your VPS the minute it is set up. In the event that you need them later, you'll be able to add them using your billing Control Panel and they shall be available within a matter of minutes. You may assign them to personal sites with several clicks or to any of your customers - if you're using the virtual server to launch your own web hosting company. You can take advantage of this upgrade as often as you like and you may renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for as long as desired.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
All Linux dedicated service we offer feature 3 IP addresses by default and you may use them in any way you see fit. In the event that you need additional IPs for any reason, you can add them to your server with several mouse clicks without any restrictions as to their number or the length of time for which you'll be able to employ them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and if you require the IPs right away, you'll be able to add them to the package deal during the signup procedure, while if it turns out that you require more IPs at some point later, you could order them just as quickly via your billing area and we shall assign them to your dedicated server a few minutes later. The dedicated IPs could be renewed together with the server plan on a monthly basis and you'll be able to decide if you'll renew all of them or just a few - in the event that you no longer require that many. You can use the IPs both for your own websites and for client hosting accounts - when you're using the dedicated server as a web hosting reseller platform.
