An IP address is a unique number that identifies a website or a server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used solely by your websites and will not be shared with other people as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. Provided you have your own web server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for various uses. If you have a web-based store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, so as to ensure that the payment info that your clients submit shall be encrypted and protected. 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 input to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which ought to be different from the one that you already have on the server. You might also need an individual IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better performance for a given Internet site, which will influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting
Every VPS web hosting service which we provide comes with one dedicated IP address and if you add an Internet hosting Control Panel to it, we shall supply you with a second one at no additional cost, allowing you to use it as you see fit. If you need to use more IPs, you'll be able to order them with just two clicks whenever you want, since you'll find this sort 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 set, while in the second - a couple of minutes after you order them. You could renew the IPs along with your VPS plan and use them for as long as you want. They can come in handy not just for your own Internet sites, but also for the websites of any customers that you might have in case you're using the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business. There isn't a limitation on how frequently you could order additional IPs or on the amount of of them you can use with your machine at any moment.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you obtain one of our dedicated server solutions, you'll receive 3 IP addresses at no additional charge and you may use them for any purpose. If you need even more IPs, you can request them at any time from your billing area and we'll assign them to the server a few moments later. You can even get more IPs during the signup process and they'll be available on your web server the instant it is ready and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of 3 and you'll be able to decide how many addresses you will order and how long you will use them, since you will be able to pick the number of IPs which you'll renew every month with your server plan. Any IP address that is assigned to your dedicated server may be used not only for your personal content, but also for any site or app your customers may have - if you have bought the machine with the goal to resell the disk space to third parties.
