An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes a site or a server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used solely by your websites and will not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. In case you have your own hosting server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for different uses. Provided you have an Internet store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make sure that the payment information which your clients submit shall be encrypted and protected. The same is valid if you have a login form of some type and you wish the usernames and the passwords that 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 server. You could also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better functionality for a given website, which may affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Every VPS server plan
which we supply features 1 dedicated IP address and if you add an Internet hosting Control Panel to it, we will give you a second one at no additional cost, so you can use it as you see fit. If you wish to use more IPs, you will be able to order them with only 2 mouse clicks whenever you want, since you'll discover this kind of an option both on our order page and in your billing Control Panel. In the first case, the dedicated addresses shall be available the minute the virtual server is set, while in the second - a few minutes after you purchase them. You could renew the IPs together with your VPS plan and use them for so long as you desire. They can prove useful not only for your own sites, but also for the sites of any customers that you may have in the event that you're using the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business. There isn't a limit on how frequently you'll be able to order additional IPs or on how many of them you'll be able to use with your hosting server at any given time.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
Every dedicated server
that we offer comes with three dedicated IP addresses supplied totally free on top of the monthly fee for the package deal. We also provide you with the chance to add more IPs to your hosting server both when you sign up and at a later time using your billing CP, so you could order the IPs whenever you require them without a limitation on the number or on how often you get them. They could be purchased in groups of 3 and will be assigned to your web server right away. You could renew them with the hosting plan and you can choose if you'll renew all of them, or a smaller amount - in the event that you no longer require the rest. Every dedicated IP address allotted to your server could be used for any purpose: for a personal Internet site, for a software server, or for a hosting client - in the event that you have decided to start your own web hosting business and you are reselling accounts to other people.
