An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes a website or a hosting server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed solely by your Internet sites and will not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. If you have your own server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for different uses. In case you have an electronic store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, to make certain that the payment info that your clients submit shall be encrypted and protected. The same is valid if you have a login form of some sort and you would like the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which has to be different from the one which you already have on the machine. You may also need an independent IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better performance for a given website, which shall influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting

Our Linux VPS web hosting packages include one dedicated IP address by default. An additional one is available also - if they are ordered with an Internet hosting Control Panel. In the event that you need more IPs, however, you'll be able to incorporate them with ease, no matter the plan which you have picked. You may do this during the signup process in the event that you need them from the beginning or using your billing account - in the event that you need them later. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your server right after that and you may start using them. You'll be able to renew the IPs along with the plan for as long as you want to use them. This upgrade is quite useful not only 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, considering that you shall be able to supply a dedicated IP to every customer who would like to use one. There is no restriction on the amount of addresses you may order or on how often you may do that.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting that we offer include 3 IP addresses by default and you'll be able to use them in whatever way you see fit. In case you need more IPs for any reason, you'll be able to add them to your server with several clicks without any limitations as to their number or the length of time for which you will be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in the event that you need the IPs straight away, you could add them to the plan during the signup procedure, while in the event that it turns out that you need more IPs at some point later on, you could order them just as easily via your billing area and we'll assign them to your dedicated server a few minutes later. The dedicated IPs may be renewed along with the server plan on a monthly basis and you'll be able to determine if you'll renew all of them or simply a few - in case you no longer need that many. You could use the IPs both for your own websites and for customer hosting accounts - if you are using the dedicated server as a web hosting reseller platform.
