An IP address is a unique number that separates a website or a server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used just by your sites and won't be shared with other people as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. If you have your own server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for many different purposes. If you have an online store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment info your clients submit will be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some type and you wish the usernames and the passwords which visitors input to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which needs to be different from the one that you already have on the server. You may also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better efficiency for a given Internet site, which will affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Hosting
If you buy one of our VPS hosting services, we shall give you one dedicated IP address by default and a second one free of charge - if you add any of the hosting Control Panels that we offer to your order. More IPs can be purchased effortlessly if you need them. The option is offered on the order page, so if you require more IPs right away, we shall be able to assign them to your VPS the instant it's set up and you can use them the instant you start using the machine. If you require them for any reason later, you can order them via the billing area and they will be available within a couple of minutes. In this way, you can assign dedicated IP addresses not just to your own Internet sites, but also to clients' sites provided you have launched a reseller business. You'll be able to order IPs as often as required and renew them together with your virtual hosting server plan. If, sooner or later, you require less IPs, you shall have the opportunity to renew only those which you require, while the extra ones will be removed from your machine.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting
Every single dedicated server we offer features 3 dedicated IP addresses supplied totally free on top of the monthly fee for the package. We also supply you with the opportunity to add more IPs to your web server both when you sign up and at a later time through your billing Control Panel, so you'll be able to order the IPs whenever you need them without a limit on the amount or on how frequently you get them. They can be purchased in groups of 3 and will be assigned to your server immediately. You may renew them with the web hosting plan and you'll be able to choose if you will renew all of them, or a smaller amount - if you no longer need the rest. Each and every dedicated IP address allocated to your hosting server could be used for any purpose: for a personal site, for a software hosting server, or for a hosting client - in the event that you have decided to start your own Internet hosting enterprise and you're reselling accounts to other people.
