An IP address is a unique number which separates an Internet site or a web server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be used only by your sites and won't be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. Provided you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for a variety of uses. In case you have an Internet store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment information that your customers submit will be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some kind and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors input to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which ought to be different from the one that you already have on the machine. You might also need an individual IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better functionality for a given Internet site, which will influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
If you select one of the VPS servers packages we supply, you'll get one dedicated IP address, and with any server which is ordered with a Control Panel, we provide a second one absolutely free. If you'd like to use additional IPs, you'll be able to add them to your package deal with only a couple of mouse clicks anytime. In the event that you need them right away, for example, you may add them to your order and they will be assigned to your VPS the instant it's set up. In the event that you need them later, you'll be able to add them using your billing CP and they'll be available within a matter of minutes. You can assign them to personal sites with a few clicks or to any of your clients - if you are using the virtual server to start out your own hosting company. You could benefit from this upgrade as often as you want and you can renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for so long as required.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server that we offer includes 3 dedicated IP addresses supplied 100 % free on top of the monthly fee for the package deal. We also provide you with the chance to add more IPs to your hosting server both when you sign up and at a later time via your billing CP, so you may order the IPs whenever you require them with no limitation on the amount or on how often you get them. They can be purchased in groups of three and will be assigned to your server immediately. You could renew them with the web hosting plan and you may decide if you'll renew all of them, or a smaller number - in the event that you no longer require the rest. Any dedicated IP address allocated to your hosting server could be used for any purpose: for a personal Internet site, for a software web server, or for a hosting customer - in the event that you have decided to start your own web hosting firm and you are reselling accounts to other people.
