An IP address is a unique number that separates an Internet site or a web server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed exclusively by your Internet sites and will not be shared with other people as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. If you have your own server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for different purposes. In case you have an online store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, to make certain that the payment information which your clients submit shall be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some type and you would like the usernames and the passwords that visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which needs to be different from the one that you already have on the server. You could also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better overall performance for a particular Internet site, which may affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS
Our Linux VPS packages include one dedicated IP address by default. A second one is available also - if they are ordered with a web hosting Control Panel. In the event that you require more IPs, however, you shall be able to incorporate them easily, no matter the package that you've selected. You'll be able to 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 hosting server shortly after that and you could start using them. You could renew the IPs along with the plan for so long as you want to use them. This upgrade is incredibly useful not simply for your personal content, but also in the event that you intend to use the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business, considering the fact that you'll be able to offer a dedicated IP to every customer who would like to use one. There isn't any restriction on how many addresses you could order or on how frequently you may do that.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting
We provide 3 100 % free dedicated IP addresses with each dedicated server which we offer, but if you require more, you may order them easily and they'll be assigned to your web server right away. The upgrade can be purchased both on our order page and in the billing CP, so you'll be able to get additional IPs whenever you need them - in the very beginning or anytime afterwards. You could order the upgrade in increments of three and add as many IP addresses as you need at any moment. You'll be able to renew only the IPs that you want along with the website hosting plan, so if, eventually, you need less IPs, you could simply renew those that you need and the other ones shall be removed from your hosting server. With our upgrade, you can use a dedicated address not just for your sites and apps, but also for your clients’ sites and apps - in case you're using the server to run a hosting reseller enterprise. Any IP on top of the default 3 IPs may be used for so long as you require it.
