An IP address is a unique number that separates an Internet site or a hosting server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used solely by your websites and shall not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared hosting accounts. If you have your own server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for various purposes. Provided you have an electronic store, for example, you will need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make certain that the payment info your clients submit shall be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some kind and you want the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which needs to be different from the one that you already have on the server. You could also need an independent IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better efficiency for a given Internet site, which shall influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
If you opt for one of the VPS servers solutions we provide, you'll get 1 dedicated IP address, and with every web server that is ordered with a CP, we give a second one at no extra cost. If you wish to use additional IPs, you are able to add them to your package deal with several mouse clicks anytime. In the event that you require them right away, for instance, you'll be able to add them to your order and they'll be assigned to your VPS the moment it's set up. In case you need them later, you can add them using your billing Control Panel and they will be available within a few minutes. You may assign them to personal sites with a few mouse clicks or to any of your customers - if you are using the virtual server to start out your own Internet hosting company. You may take full advantage of this upgrade as often as you wish and you'll be able to renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for so long as needed.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated servers that we offer come with three IP addresses by default and you may use them in whatever way you see fit. If you need more IPs for any reason, you may add them to your server with several mouse clicks without any limits as to their number or the period for which you'll be able to employ them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in the event that you need the IPs straight away, you can add them to the package during the signup process, while if it turns out that you need more IPs at some point later on, you'll be able to order them just as easily through your billing area and we shall assign them to your dedicated server a few minutes later. The dedicated IPs can be renewed along with the hosting server plan on a monthly basis and you could choose if you'll renew all of them or only a few - in case you no longer need that many. You'll be able to use the IPs both for your own sites and for customer hosting accounts - provided you are using the dedicated server as an Internet hosting reseller platform.
