An IP address is a unique number which identifies a website or a hosting server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed only by your Internet sites and will not be shared with other people as it happens with shared hosting accounts. Provided you have your own web server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for various purposes. If you have an electronic store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make sure that the payment information that your customers submit will be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some type and you want the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which needs to be different from the one that you already have on the server. You may also need a separate IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better overall performance for a certain Internet site, which shall influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers provide one dedicated IP address by default. Another one is available too - in case they are ordered with an Internet hosting Control Panel. If you require more IPs, however, you shall be able to incorporate them with ease, regardless of the plan which you have chosen. You can do this during the signup procedure if you need them from the very beginning or using your billing account - in case you need them afterwards. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your web server right 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 when you want to use the virtual server to run a web hosting reseller business, because you shall be able to provide a dedicated IP to every client who would want to use one. There isn't a restriction on how many addresses you may order or on how frequently you can do that.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated servers that we offer feature three IP addresses by default and you'll be able to use them in any way you see fit. If you require even more IPs for any reason, you could add them to your web server with a few clicks without any restrictions as to their number or the period for which you shall be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and if you need the IPs right away, you can add them to the package during the signup procedure, while in case it turns out that you need more IPs at some point later on, you can order them just as simply via your billing area and we'll assign them to your dedicated server a few minutes later. The dedicated IPs could be renewed together with the server plan on a monthly basis and you could determine if you will renew all of them or only a few - in the event that you no longer require that many. You can use the IPs both for your own sites and for client hosting accounts - if you are using the dedicated server as a hosting reseller platform.
