An IP address is a unique number that identifies a site or a web server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used just by your sites and shall not be shared with others as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. Provided you have your own hosting server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for different purposes. Provided you have an electronic store, for example, you will need an SSL certificate for it, to make certain that the payment info that your customers submit will be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some sort and you want the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which has to be different from the one which you already have on the machine. You may also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better efficiency for a given Internet site, which shall affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
If you decide to purchase one of our VPS plans
, we will provide you with one dedicated IP address by default and a second one totally free - if you add any one of the hosting Control Panels we offer to your order. More IPs may be purchased easily if you need them. The option is available on the order page, so in the event that you require more IPs right away, we can assign them to your VPS as soon as it's set up and you can use them the moment you begin using the machine. If you require them for any reason later, you can order them from the billing area and they shall be available in a few minutes. This way, you shall be able to assign dedicated IP addresses not only to your own Internet sites, but also to clients' sites provided you have started a reseller business. You can order IPs as often as needed and renew them together with your virtual web server plan. If, sooner or later, you require less IPs, you will have the opportunity to renew only those which you require, while the extra ones shall be removed from your hosting server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
We give 3 free dedicated IP addresses with each dedicated server
that we offer, but if you need more, you can order them effortlessly and they shall be assigned to your web server without delay. The upgrade is available both on our order page and within the billing CP, so you could get additional IPs whenever you need them - in the very beginning or at any time afterwards. You can order the upgrade in increments of three and include as many IP addresses as you want at any moment. You could renew just the IPs which you need along with the website hosting plan, so if, sooner or later, you need less IPs, you could simply renew those you need and the other ones will be removed from your web server. With our upgrade, you could use a dedicated address not only for your Internet sites and apps, but also for your clients’ websites and apps - in the event that you are using the machine to run a hosting reseller enterprise. Any IP on top of the default 3 IPs can be used for as long as you need it.
