An IP address is a unique number which separates a website or a web server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed only by your Internet sites and shall not be shared with others as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. In case you have your own server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for different purposes. In case you have an Internet store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make certain 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 wish the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which has to be different from the one which you already have on the server. You might 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 site, which shall influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
If you opt for one of the VPS servers packages which we supply, you shall get one dedicated IP address, and with any hosting server which is ordered with a CP, we provide a second one absolutely free. If you would like to use additional IPs, you may add them to your package deal with only a couple of clicks whenever you want. If you require them immediately, for instance, you may add them to your order and they'll be assigned to your VPS the instant it's set up. If you need them later, you may add them using your billing CP and they shall be available within a couple of minutes. You could assign them to personal sites with a few clicks or to any of your customers - if you are using the virtual server to start out your own web hosting business. You could take advantage of this upgrade as often as you like and you'll be able to renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for as long as desired.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server which we offer features 3 dedicated IP addresses provided free of charge on top of the monthly fee for the plan. We also offer the opportunity to add more IPs to your web server both when you sign up and at a later time using your billing Control Panel, so you'll be able to order the IPs whenever you require them without a restriction on the amount or on how often you get them. They could be purchased in groups of three and shall be assigned to your server immediately. You could renew them with the Internet hosting plan and you could choose if you will renew all of them, or a smaller number - in the event that you no longer require the rest. Each dedicated IP address allocated to your hosting server could be used for any purpose: for a personal site, for a software web server, or for a hosting customer - in case you've decided to start your own hosting firm and you are reselling accounts to other people.
