An IP address is a unique number which separates a site or a web server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used exclusively by your websites and will not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. Provided you have your own hosting server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for many different purposes. If you have an electronic store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make certain that the payment information which your customers submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some kind and you want the usernames and the passwords which visitors input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which has to be different from the one that 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 would like a slightly better functionality for a particular site, which may influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
If you buy one of our Linux VPS servers, we'll provide you with one dedicated IP address by default and a second one at no extra cost - in the event that you add any one of the hosting Control Panels we offer to your order. Additional IPs could be purchased easily in the event that you require them. The option is available on the order page, so if you need more IPs from the start, we'll able to assign them to your VPS the minute it's set up and you can use them the second you start using the hosting server. If you need them for any reason afterwards, you can order them from the billing area and they will be available in a few minutes. This way, you can assign dedicated IP addresses not only to your own Internet sites, but also to clients' sites provided you have started a reseller business. You'll be able to order IPs as often as needed and renew them together with your virtual server plan. If, sooner or later, you need less IPs, you will have the opportunity to renew only those which you require, while the extra ones will be removed from your server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
Every single dedicated server we offer includes 3 dedicated IP addresses supplied free of charge on top of the monthly fee for the plan. We also give you the chance to add more IPs to your server both when you sign up and at a later time through your billing CP, so you may order the IPs whenever you need them without a restriction on the number or on how often you get them. They may be purchased in groups of 3 and will be assigned to your hosting server right away. You could renew them with the web hosting plan and you can decide if you'll renew all of them, or a smaller amount - if you no longer require the rest. Any dedicated IP address assigned to your server could be used for any purpose: for a personal website, for a software web server, or for a hosting customer - if you've decided to launch your own Internet hosting firm and you're reselling accounts to other people.
