An IP address is a unique number which identifies a website or a web server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed solely by your websites and shall not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. Provided you have your own web server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for different uses. Provided you have a web-based store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, so as to ensure that the payment info which your customers submit shall be encrypted and secure. 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, which ought to be different from the one that you already have on the web server. You could also need a separate IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better performance for a certain website, which may affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Hosting
Each and every VPS hosting service that we supply includes 1 dedicated IP address and if you add an Internet hosting Control Panel to it, we shall give you a second one at no additional cost, so you can use it as you see fit. If you need to use more IPs, you'll be able to order them with no more than two clicks whenever you want, since you will locate this type of an option both on our order page and within your billing Control Panel. In the first case, the dedicated addresses shall be available as soon as the virtual server is prepared, while in the second - a few moments after you purchase them. You could renew the IPs along with your VPS plan and use them for so long as you need. They can be useful not only for your own sites, but also for the Internet sites of any clients that you might have if you are using the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business. There isn't any limitation on how often you can order additional IPs or on how many of them you can use with your machine at any time.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting
Every dedicated server we offer includes three dedicated IP addresses supplied totally free on top of the monthly fee for the package. We also give you the chance to add more IPs to your web server both when you sign up and at a later time via your billing CP, so you may order the IPs whenever you require them without a restriction on the amount or on how frequently you get them. They could be purchased in groups of 3 and shall be assigned to your server instantly. You could renew them with the Internet hosting plan and you'll be able to choose if you'll renew all of them, or a smaller number - in case you no longer need the rest. Each dedicated IP address allotted to your web server may be used for any purpose: for a personal Internet site, for a software hosting server, or for a hosting client - in the event that you have decided to launch your own web hosting business and you're reselling accounts to other people.
