An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes a website or a web server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed just by your websites and will not be shared with others as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. In case you have your own web server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for a variety of uses. If you have an online store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, so as to ensure that the payment info which your customers submit shall be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some kind and you want the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which needs to be different from the one that you already have on the hosting server. You might also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better functionality for a particular Internet site, which will affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting
Each and every VPS web hosting service which we provide includes one dedicated IP address and if you add a web hosting Control Panel to it, we'll give you a second one at no additional cost, so that you can use it as you see fit. If you want to use more IPs, you shall be able to order them with no more than 2 clicks at any time, since you'll discover this sort of an option both on our order page and within your billing CP. In the first case, the dedicated addresses will be available the moment the virtual server is ready, while in the second - a few minutes after you order them. You could renew the IPs along with your VPS plan and use them for as long as you wish. They can prove useful not simply for your own websites, but also for the Internet sites of any clients that you could have if you're using the virtual server to run an Internet 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 can use with your server at any time.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All Linux dedicated servers hosting which we offer include 3 IP addresses by default and you may use them in whatever way you see fit. If you require more IPs for any reason, you'll be able to add them to your hosting server with a couple of clicks without limits as to their number or the duration for which you shall be able to employ them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and if you need the IPs straight away, you could add them to the package during the signup process, while in case it turns out that you need more IPs at some point later, you'll be able to order them just as easily through your billing area and we shall assign them to your dedicated server several minutes later. The dedicated IPs may be renewed with the server plan on a monthly basis and you could decide if you shall renew all of them or simply a few - in the event that you no longer need that many. You'll be able to use the IPs both for your own Internet sites and for client hosting accounts - if you're using the dedicated server as an Internet hosting reseller platform.
