An IP address is a unique number that separates a website or a hosting server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed just by your websites and shall not be shared with others as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. If you have your own server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for different purposes. If you have an electronic store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment information your customers submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you want the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which has to be different from the one that you already have on the hosting server. You may also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better functionality for a certain site, which will influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Each and every VPS server plan that we provide features one dedicated IP address and if you add a hosting Control Panel to it, we will supply you with a second one at no additional cost, allowing you to use it the way you see fit. If you need to use more IPs, you shall be able to order them with only a couple of mouse clicks anytime, as you will locate this sort of an option both on our order page and inside your billing CP. In the first case, the dedicated addresses will be available as soon as the virtual server is prepared, while in the second - a few moments after you buy them. You could renew the IPs along with your VPS plan and use them for so long as you would like. They can prove useful not just for your own Internet sites, but also for the Internet sites of any customers that you might have in the event that you are using the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business. There's no limitation on how often you'll be able to order additional IPs or on how many of them you can use with your machine at any moment.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
All Linux dedicated web hosting plans we offer include three IP addresses by default and you'll be able to use them in any way you see fit. In the event that you need even more IPs for any reason, you can add them to your server with a couple of mouse clicks without any limitations as to their number or to the length of time for which you will be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in case you need the IPs right from the start, you could add them to the package during the signup procedure, while in the event that it turns out that you need more IPs at some point afterwards, you can order them just as quickly using your billing area and we will assign them to your dedicated server a couple of minutes later. The dedicated IPs could be renewed along with the server plan on a monthly basis and you can determine if you will renew all of them or only a few - in the event that you no longer need that many. You can use the IPs both for your own sites and for client hosting accounts - when you're using the dedicated server as a web hosting reseller platform.
