An IP address is a unique number that separates an Internet site or a hosting server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed just by your sites and won't be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. If you have your own web server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for many different purposes. Provided you have an Internet store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make certain that the payment information that your customers submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some kind and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which should be different from the one that you already have on the web server. You could also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better performance for a particular site, which may affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Hosting

Every single VPS hosting package we supply includes 1 dedicated IP address and if you add an Internet hosting Control Panel to it, we'll supply you with a second one at no additional cost, so that you can use it as you see fit. If you would like to use more IPs, you'll be able to order them with only a couple of clicks at any time, as you will discover such an option both on our order page and in your billing Control Panel. In the first case, the dedicated addresses will be available as soon as the virtual server is set, while in the second - a few moments after you buy them. You'll be able to renew the IPs together with your VPS plan and use them for so long as you want. They can prove useful not just for your own Internet sites, but also for the Internet sites of any customers which you could have if you are using the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business. There is no limitation on how many times you'll be able to order additional IPs or on how many of them you'll be able to use with your machine at any time.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you obtain one of our dedicated server plans, you'll get three IP addresses at no additional charge and you may use them for any purpose. If you require more IPs, you could request them whenever you want from your billing area and we will assign them to the hosting server a few minutes later. You can also get more IPs during the signup procedure and they'll be available on your web server the moment it is all set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of 3 and you'll be able to decide how many addresses you'll order and how long you shall use them, since you can select the number of IPs that you will renew on a monthly basis with your server plan. Any IP address which is assigned to your dedicated server could be used not just for your personal content, but for any site or app your clients may have - if you have bought the web server with the intent to resell the disk space to third parties.
