An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes a site or a web server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used exclusively by your sites and shall not be shared with others as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. Provided you have your own hosting server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for many different purposes. In case you have a web-based store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment info which your clients submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you wish the usernames and the passwords that visitors enter to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which has to be different from the one that you already have on the hosting server. You may also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better performance for a particular site, which may affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Every single VPS server plan that we supply comes with one dedicated IP address and if you add a hosting CP to it, we'll give you a second one at no additional cost, so you can use it as you see fit. If you would like to use more IPs, you'll be able to order them with only a couple of clicks anytime, since you'll discover this type of an option both on our order page and in your billing Control Panel. In the first case, the dedicated addresses will be available the instant the virtual server is ready, while in the second - a few minutes after you order them. You can renew the IPs along with your VPS plan and use them for so long as you need. They can prove useful not just for your own Internet sites, but also for the Internet sites of any clients which you might have if you're using the virtual server to run a web hosting reseller business. There's no limitation on how many times you can order additional IPs or on how many of them you'll be able to use with your web server at any moment.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server which we offer includes three dedicated IP addresses provided free of charge on top of the monthly fee for the package. We also supply you with the chance to add more IPs to your server both when you sign up and at a later time using your billing Control Panel, so you'll be able to order the IPs whenever you need them with no limit on the amount or on how frequently you get them. They can be purchased in groups of 3 and shall be assigned to your server immediately. You'll be able to renew them with the hosting plan and you'll be able to decide if you will renew all of them, or a smaller number - if you no longer need the rest. Each and every 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 customer - in case you have decided to launch your own hosting firm and you're reselling accounts to other people.
