An IP address is a unique number that identifies a website or a web server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used exclusively by your Internet sites and won't be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. If you have your own hosting server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for a variety of uses. Provided you have an Internet store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, to make certain that the payment information which your customers submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some sort and you want the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which needs to be different from the one that you already have on the machine. You might also need an independent IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better overall performance for a particular Internet site, which shall affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Hosting

Our Linux VPS hosting provide one dedicated IP address by default. A second one is available as well - if they are ordered with an Internet hosting CP. In the event that you require more IPs, however, you shall be able to include them effortlessly, no matter the package which you have chosen. You may do this during the signup procedure in case you need them from the beginning or through your billing account - in case you need them later on. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your web server shortly after that and you could begin using them. You could renew the IPs together with the plan for as long as you plan to use them. This upgrade is very useful not simply for your personal content, but also if you would like to use the virtual server to run a web hosting reseller business, since you shall be able to supply a dedicated IP to every customer who would want to use one. There isn't any restriction on the amount of addresses you could order or on how often you may do that.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting

All Linux dedicated hosting services which we offer come with 3 IP addresses by default and you'll be able to use them in any way you see fit. In case you require more IPs for any reason, you'll be able to add them to your web server with a couple of mouse clicks without any limitations as to their number or to the duration for which you will be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in the event that you require the IPs right from the start, you could add them to the plan during the signup process, while in case it turns out that you need more IPs at some point afterwards, you'll be able to order them just as easily from your billing area and we'll assign them to your dedicated server a few minutes later. The dedicated IPs could be renewed with the server plan on a monthly basis and you'll be able to determine if you'll renew all of them or just a few - in the event that you no longer need that many. You'll be able to use the IPs both for your own websites and for client hosting accounts - when you are using the dedicated server as a web hosting reseller platform.
