An IP address is a unique number which separates a site or a hosting server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed solely by your Internet sites and shall not be shared with others as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. Provided you have your own server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for a variety of purposes. If you have a web-based store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make certain that the payment information that your clients submit will be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some type and you wish the usernames and the passwords that visitors input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which should be different from the one which you already have on the machine. You could also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better functionality for a certain Internet site, which shall influence 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 - when they are ordered with an Internet hosting Control Panel. In case you need more IPs, however, you'll be able to include them easily, whatever the plan which you have picked. You are able to do this during the signup process in the event that you need them from the very beginning or using your billing account - in the event that you need them afterwards. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your server right after that and you can begin using them. You can renew the IPs together with the plan for as long as you want to use them. This upgrade is incredibly useful not just for your personal content, but also in case you want to use the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business, because you'll be able to supply a dedicated IP to every client who would want to use one. There isn't any restriction on how many addresses you may order or on how frequently you'll be able to do that.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each and every dedicated server that we offer features 3 dedicated IP addresses supplied at no extra cost on top of the monthly fee for the plan. 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 Control Panel, so you'll be able to order the IPs whenever you require them with no limit on the amount or on how often you get them. They can be purchased in groups of three and will be assigned to your server immediately. You may renew them with the web hosting plan and you can choose if you'll renew all of them, or a smaller number - in case you no longer need the rest. Any dedicated IP address assigned to your hosting server can be used for any purpose: for a personal website, for a software hosting server, or for a hosting customer - if you have decided to start out your own web hosting company and you are reselling accounts to other people.
