An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes an Internet site or a hosting server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed solely by your Internet sites and shall not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. Provided you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for various uses. Provided you have an online store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment information which your customers submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some type and you wish the usernames and the passwords that visitors enter to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which has to be different from the one which you already have on the web server. You may also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better performance for a particular Internet site, which may influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS
Our Linux VPS packages provide one dedicated IP address by default. An additional one is available also - in case they are ordered with an Internet hosting CP. In case you require more IPs, however, you shall be able to incorporate them easily, no matter the package which you've selected. You could do this during the signup process in case you need them from the beginning or through your billing account - in the event that you need them later on. The dedicated IPs will be assigned to your web server right after that and you may 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 the event that you would like to use the virtual server to run a web hosting reseller business, because you'll be able to provide a dedicated IP to any customer who wants to use one. There isn't a restriction on the amount of addresses you'll be able to order or on how many times you could do that.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting
We provide three totally free dedicated IP addresses with every single dedicated server which we offer, but if you need more, you may order them easily and they will be assigned to your web server at once. The upgrade can be acquired both on our order page and in the billing CP, so you could get additional IPs whenever you need them - in the very beginning or anytime afterwards. You'll be able to order the upgrade in increments of three and include as many IP addresses as you require at any time. You'll be able to renew just the IPs which you want together with the hosting plan, so if, at some point, you need less IPs, you can simply renew those you need and the other ones shall be removed from your hosting server. With our upgrade, you could use a dedicated address not only for your websites and apps, but also for your clients’ sites and applications - in the event that you are using the machine to run an Internet hosting reseller company. Any IP on top of the default three IPs can be employed for as long as you need it.
