An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes a website or a hosting server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used exclusively by your websites and will not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared hosting accounts. Provided you have your own web server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for a variety of uses. Provided you have a web-based store, for example, you will need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make certain that the payment info that your customers submit will be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some kind and you would like the usernames and the passwords that visitors enter to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which has to be different from the one which you already have on the web server. You could also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better overall performance for a particular website, which will influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Hosting
Our Linux VPS hosting feature one dedicated IP address by default. An additional one is available also - when they are ordered with an Internet hosting Control Panel. In the event that you need more IPs, however, you'll be able to include them effortlessly, whatever the plan which you have picked. You are able to do this during the signup process in case you need them from the beginning or through your billing account - if you need them afterwards. The dedicated IPs will be assigned to your hosting server shortly after that and you can begin using them. You can renew the IPs along with the plan for as long as you want to use them. This upgrade is incredibly useful not only for your personal content, but also when you want to use the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business, considering the fact that you'll be able to provide a dedicated IP to every customer who would like to use one. There's no restriction on the number of addresses you can order or on how many times you can do that.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting
We give 3 free dedicated IP addresses with every dedicated server we offer, but if you require more, you'll be able to order them effortlessly and they'll be assigned to your machine at once. The upgrade is available both on our order page and inside the billing CP, so you can get additional IPs whenever you require them - in the beginning or anytime later on. You'll be able to order the upgrade in increments of three and add as many IP addresses as you want at any moment. You can renew only the IPs that you want together with the website hosting plan, so if, sooner or later, you need less IPs, you could simply renew those that you need and the other ones will be removed from your server. With our upgrade, you'll be able to use a dedicated address not only for your sites and apps, but also for your clients’ Internet sites and applications - in the event that you're using the machine to run a hosting reseller business. Any IP on top of the default 3 IPs could be employed for as long as you require it.
