An IP address is a unique number that identifies an Internet site or a web server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used solely by your websites and won't be shared with others as it happens with shared hosting accounts. In case you have your own hosting server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for many different uses. Provided you have an Internet store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, in order to ensure that the payment information your customers submit will be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some sort and you want the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which has to be different from the one which you already have on the web server. You might also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better overall performance for a certain website, which shall influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting
If you select one of the virtual private servers solutions we provide, you'll get 1 dedicated IP address, and with any server that is ordered with a Control Panel, we give a second one totally free. If you wish to use additional IPs, you can add them to your plan with just a few clicks anytime. In the event that you need them right away, for example, you'll be able to add them to your order and they will be assigned to your VPS the minute it's set up. In the event that you need them later, you could add them through your billing Control Panel and they shall be available within a few minutes. You can assign them to personal websites with a couple of clicks or to any of your clients - if you're using the virtual server to start out your own Internet hosting business. You'll be able to benefit from this upgrade as often as you want and you could renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for so long as required.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Every single dedicated server we offer features three dedicated IP addresses provided at no extra cost on top of the monthly fee for the plan. We also offer the chance 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 need them without a limitation on the number or on how frequently you get them. They may be purchased in groups of three and will be assigned to your hosting server instantly. You may renew them with the hosting plan and you'll be able to decide if you will renew all of them, or a smaller number - in the event that you no longer require the rest. Any dedicated IP address assigned to your web server may be used for any purpose: for a personal Internet site, for a software hosting server, or for a hosting customer - if you have decided to start out your own hosting enterprise and you're reselling accounts to other people.
