An IP address is a unique number which separates a website or a web server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used exclusively by your sites and shall not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. Provided you have your own web server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for a variety of purposes. Provided you have a web-based store, for example, you will need an SSL certificate for it, to make certain that the payment info your clients submit shall be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some sort and you would like the usernames and the passwords that visitors enter to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which needs to be different from the one which you already have on the web server. You may also need a separate IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better efficiency for a certain Internet site, which may influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting

Our Linux VPS web hosting come with one dedicated IP address by default. A second one is available too - when they are ordered with a hosting Control Panel. If you need more IPs, however, you'll be able to add them with ease, no matter the plan that you've picked. You may do this during the signup procedure in the event that you need them from the start or via your billing account - if you need them afterwards. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your web server shortly after that and you could begin using them. You can renew the IPs together with the plan for as long as you plan to use them. This upgrade is incredibly useful not simply for your personal content, but also in the event that you wish to use the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business, considering that you shall be able to offer a dedicated IP to every client who would like to use one. There's no restriction on the amount of addresses you'll be able to order or on how frequently you could do that.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you acquire one of our dedicated server plans, you'll get 3 IP addresses at no additional charge and you could use them for any purpose. If you require even more IPs, you can request them at any time from your billing area and we shall assign them to the hosting server a few moments later. You can even get additional IPs during the signup procedure and they shall be available on your web server the minute it's all set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of 3 and you can choose how many addresses you will order and how long you'll use them, as you can choose the number of IPs that you will renew every month with your hosting server plan. Any IP address that is assigned to your dedicated server could be used not only for your personal content, but also for any Internet site or application that your customers may have - if you have obtained the server with the intention to resell the disk space to third parties.
