An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes an Internet site or a server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used exclusively by your sites and shall not be shared with other people as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. If you have your own server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for many different purposes. In case you have an online store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, in order to ensure that the payment information which your clients submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid if you have a login form of some sort and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which should be different from the one that you already have on the hosting server. You may also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better efficiency for a certain site, which will affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting
Each VPS web hosting package which we offer comes with 1 dedicated IP address and if you add a web hosting Control Panel to it, we will provide you with 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'll be able to order them with just two clicks anytime, since you'll locate this kind 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 set, while in the second - a few moments after you purchase them. You could renew the IPs together with your VPS plan and use them for as long as you need. They can be useful not only for your own websites, but also for the Internet sites of any clients that you might have in the event that you are using the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business. There is no limit on how many times you can order additional IPs or on how many of them you could use with your web server at any moment.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Every dedicated server that we offer features 3 dedicated IP addresses supplied at no extra cost on top of the monthly fee for the package deal. 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 could order the IPs whenever you require them without a limit on the number or on how often you get them. They could be purchased in groups of 3 and shall be assigned to your hosting server instantly. You'll be able to renew them with the hosting plan and you can choose if you will renew all of them, or a smaller amount - in case you no longer need the rest. Each and every dedicated IP address allotted to your web server may be used for any purpose: for a personal Internet site, for a software web server, or for a hosting client - in the event that you have decided to launch your own hosting enterprise and you're reselling accounts to other people.
