An IP address is a unique number that identifies a website or a server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed only by your sites and will not be shared with others as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. In case you have your own hosting server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for various purposes. Provided you have an Internet store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, to ensure that the payment information which your clients submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some type and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which should be different from the one which you already have on the machine. You might also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better functionality for a particular Internet site, which will influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Every single VPS server service we supply features one dedicated IP address and if you add a web hosting CP to it, we shall provide you with a second one at no additional cost, so that you can use it as you see fit. If you need to use more IPs, you'll be able to order them with just a couple of mouse clicks whenever you want, since you'll find 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 as soon as the virtual server is prepared, while in the second - a few minutes after you purchase them. You'll be able to renew the IPs together with your VPS plan and use them for as long as you would like. They can be useful not just for your own websites, but also for the websites of any clients that you may have in the event that you are using the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business. There isn't any limit on how frequently you can order additional IPs or on the amount of of them you'll be able to use with your web server at any time.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server that we offer features three dedicated IP addresses supplied free of charge on top of the monthly fee for the package. We also supply 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'll be able to order the IPs whenever you require them with no restriction on the number or on how often you get them. They could be purchased in groups of 3 and will be assigned to your hosting server right away. You could renew them with the web hosting plan and you'll be able to decide if you'll renew all of them, or a smaller amount - in the event that you no longer need the rest. Every dedicated IP address allotted to your server could be used for any purpose: for a personal site, for a software web server, or for a hosting client - in case you've decided to launch your own web hosting company and you are reselling accounts to other people.
