An IP address is a unique number that identifies a website or a web server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used just by your websites and will not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. Provided you have your own web server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for various uses. In case you have an electronic store, for example, you will need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make sure that the payment information your clients submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some kind and you want the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which ought to be different from the one which you already have on the machine. You could also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better overall performance for a certain website, which may influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
If you choose one of the VPS servers plans we supply, you'll get one 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 package with a few clicks anytime. In the event that you require them immediately, for instance, you'll be able to add them to your order and they'll be assigned to your VPS the moment it is set up. In the event that you need them later, you can add them using your billing Control Panel and they will be available within a matter of minutes. You'll be able to assign them to personal websites with several mouse clicks or to any of your customers - if you are using the virtual server to start out your own Internet hosting firm. You may take advantage of this upgrade as often as you wish and you can renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for so long as required.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
Every single dedicated server we offer includes 3 dedicated IP addresses supplied absolutely free on top of the monthly fee for the plan. We also supply you with the chance to add more IPs to your web server both when you sign up and at a later time using your billing CP, so you may order the IPs whenever you need them without a restriction on the number or on how often you get them. They can be purchased in groups of 3 and shall be assigned to your hosting server immediately. You can renew them with the Internet hosting plan and you may decide if you will renew all of them, or a smaller number - if you no longer require the rest. Every dedicated IP address allotted to your web server can be used for any purpose: for a personal Internet site, for a software server, or for a hosting client - in case you've decided to start your own hosting company and you are reselling accounts to other people.
