An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes a website or a web server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed just by your sites and shall not be shared with others as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. In case you have your own web server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for various purposes. In case you have a web-based store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, in order to ensure that the payment information your clients submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some type and you would like the usernames and the passwords that visitors input to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which should be different from the one that you already have on the machine. You may also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better performance for a certain website, which may influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting
If you choose one of the virtual private servers solutions which we offer, you shall get one dedicated IP address, and with every hosting server that's ordered with a Control Panel, we give a second one totally free. If you would like to use additional IPs, you could add them to your plan with a few clicks whenever you want. In case you need them at once, for example, you'll be able to add them to your order and they'll be assigned to your VPS the minute it's set up. In case you need them later, you may add them using your billing Control Panel and they'll be available within a few minutes. You'll be able to assign them to personal sites with several clicks or to any of your clients - if you are using the virtual server to launch your own hosting business. You could benefit from this upgrade as often as you want and you'll be able to renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for as long as required.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting
We provide 3 free dedicated IP addresses with each and every dedicated server we offer, but in case you need more, you'll be able to order them easily and they shall be assigned to your server right away. The upgrade can be purchased both on our order page and inside the billing CP, so you could get additional IPs whenever you need them - in the very beginning or at any time afterwards. You'll be able to order the upgrade in increments of three and include as many IP addresses as you require at any given time. You may renew just the IPs that you want along with the hosting plan, so if, at one point, you need less IPs, you could simply renew those that you need and the other ones will be removed from your hosting server. With our upgrade, you'll be able to use a dedicated address not just for your Internet sites and apps, but also for your clients’ sites and applications - in case you are using the machine to run a web hosting reseller business. Any IP on top of the default 3 IPs may be employed for so long as you need it.
