An IP address is a unique number that identifies a site or a server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed only by your sites and won't be shared with others as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. Provided you have your own server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for different uses. In case you have an Internet store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, so as to ensure that the payment info that your customers submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some type and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which ought to be different from the one that you already have on the hosting server. You might also need a separate IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better overall performance for a particular site, which shall affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Our VPS web hosting service feature one dedicated IP address by default. An additional one is available as well - when they are ordered with an Internet hosting Control Panel. In the event that you require more IPs, however, you will be able to include them with ease, no matter the package that you have selected. You could do this during the signup procedure in the event that you need them from the start or through your billing account - in case you need them later on. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your web server soon after that and you can start using them. You'll be able to renew the IPs along with the plan for as long as you want to use them. This upgrade is extremely useful not just for your personal content, but also when you intend to use the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business, since you will be able to provide a dedicated IP to any client who would like to use one. There isn't a restriction on how many addresses you can order or on how often you may do that.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server which we offer includes 3 dedicated IP addresses supplied at no extra cost on top of the monthly fee for the package. We also offer the chance to add more IPs to your hosting server both when you sign up and at a later time using your billing Control Panel, so you can order the IPs whenever you need them with no limit on the amount or on how frequently you get them. They may be purchased in groups of three and will be assigned to your web server right away. You'll be able to renew them with the web hosting plan and you'll be able to decide if you'll renew all of them, or a smaller number - in the event that you no longer require the rest. Each dedicated IP address allotted to your web server can be used for any purpose: for a personal Internet site, for a software web server, or for a hosting customer - if you've decided to start out your own web hosting company and you are reselling accounts to other people.
