An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes an Internet site or a hosting 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. In case you have your own hosting server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for different uses. If you have an electronic store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, so as 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 type and you want the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which should be different from the one which you already have on the machine. 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 influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Each and every VPS server service we supply comes with 1 dedicated IP address and if you add a hosting CP to it, we'll provide you with a second one at no additional cost, allowing you to use it as you see fit. If you want to use more IPs, you'll be able to order them with only 2 mouse clicks whenever you want, since you'll discover such an option both on our order page and inside your billing Control Panel. In the first case, the dedicated addresses shall be available the minute the virtual server is ready, while in the second - a few minutes after you order them. You could renew the IPs together with your VPS plan and use them for so long as you want. They can be useful not simply for your own sites, but also for the websites of any customers which you might have in the event that you are using the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business. There isn't a restriction on how often you could order additional IPs or on the amount of of them you'll be able to use with your hosting server at any moment.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
When you obtain one of our dedicated server plans, you will get 3 IP addresses at no additional charge and you could use them for any purpose. If you require even more IPs, you'll be able to request them at any time via your billing area and we shall assign them to the hosting server a couple of minutes later. You may even get additional IPs during the signup procedure and they will be available on your web server the minute it's set 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'll order and how long you'll use them, since you could pick the number of IPs which you'll renew every month with your hosting server plan. Any IP address that is assigned to your dedicated server may be used not just for your personal content, but for any site or app which your customers may have - if you have obtained the web server with the purpose to resell the disk space to third parties.
