An IP address is a unique number that separates a site or a hosting server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed just by your Internet sites and won't be shared with others as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. Provided you have your own web server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for many different uses. Provided you have an online store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make certain that the payment info which your customers submit shall be encrypted and protected. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you wish the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which ought to be different from the one that you already have on the web server. You may also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better efficiency for a certain Internet site, which shall influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
If you select one of the VPS servers plans which we provide, you will get 1 dedicated IP address, and with every server which is ordered with a Control Panel, we supply a second one 100 % free. If you would like to use additional IPs, you can add them to your package deal with only several mouse clicks whenever you want. In case you require them immediately, for example, you may add them to your order and they shall be assigned to your VPS the moment it is set up. In case you need them later, you could add them through your billing CP and they shall be available within a few minutes. You can assign them to personal sites with a few mouse clicks or to any of your customers - if you're using the virtual server to start your own web hosting firm. You can take advantage of this upgrade as often as you want and you may renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for as long as needed.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
When you acquire one of our dedicated server packages, you'll receive three IP addresses at no additional charge and you'll be able to use them for any purpose. If you require more IPs, you could request them anytime from your billing area and we shall assign them to the hosting server a few minutes later. You can also get additional IPs during the signup process and they shall be available on your web server as soon as it's set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you'll be able to pick how many addresses you will order and how long you'll use them, as you will be able to select the number of IPs which you will renew each month with your hosting server plan. Any IP address that is assigned to your dedicated server could be used not just for your personal content, but also for any Internet site or app which your customers may have - if you have acquired the machine with the intent to resell the disk space to third parties.
