An IP address is a unique number which identifies a site or a hosting server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used just by your websites and won't be shared with other people as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. Provided you have your own hosting server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for many different uses. In case you have a web-based store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, to make certain that the payment info that your customers submit will be encrypted and secure. The same is valid if you have a login form of some type and you wish the usernames and the passwords which visitors input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which ought to be different from the one which you already have on the server. You could also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better performance for a certain Internet site, which shall influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Hosting
If you decide to purchase one of our VPS hosting, we shall supply you with one dedicated IP address by default and a second one absolutely free - if you add any of the hosting Control Panels that we offer to your order. Extra IPs can be purchased with ease in the event that you require them. The option is available on the order page, so in case you require more IPs right away, we can assign them to your VPS the minute it is set up and you can use them the instant you begin using the server. If you need them for any reason later on, you can order them via the billing area and they'll be available in a matter of minutes. In this way, you'll be able to assign dedicated IP addresses not only to your own Internet sites, but also to clients' websites provided you have started out a reseller business. You'll be able to order IPs as frequently as needed and renew them together with your virtual hosting server plan. If, sooner or later, you require less IPs, you'll have the opportunity to renew only those that you require, while the extra ones shall be taken off your web server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting
All dedicated web hosting we offer feature 3 IP addresses by default and you'll be able to use them in any way you see fit. In case you need even more IPs for any reason, you could add them to your server with just a few clicks with no limits as to their number or the period for which you shall be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in the event that you need the IPs straight away, you'll be able to add them to the package deal during the signup process, while in case it turns out that you need more IPs at some point afterwards, you'll be able to order them just as simply via your billing area and we shall assign them to your dedicated server several minutes later. The dedicated IPs may be renewed along with the hosting server plan on a monthly basis and you could determine if you will renew all of them or just a few - in the event that you no longer need that many. You may use the IPs both for your own Internet sites and for customer hosting accounts - if you're using the dedicated server as a hosting reseller platform.
