An IP address is a unique number that separates a website or a server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed exclusively by your Internet sites and will not be shared with other people as it happens with shared hosting accounts. Provided you have your own web server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for a variety of uses. If you have an Internet store, for example, you will need an SSL certificate for it, to ensure that the payment info your clients submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some kind and you wish the usernames and the passwords that visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which needs to be different from the one that you already have on the server. You might also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better functionality for a particular website, which may affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting
Our Linux VPS web hosting come with one dedicated IP address by default. A second one is available also - in case they are ordered with a web hosting CP. If you need more IPs, however, you'll be able to include them easily, whatever the plan which you've selected. You can do this during the signup process in the event that you need them from the start or using your billing account - in case you need them later on. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your web server soon after that and you can begin using them. You could renew the IPs together with the plan for as long as you intend to use them. This upgrade is very useful not only for your personal content, but also if you intend to use the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business, because you shall be able to provide a dedicated IP to any client who wants to use one. There isn't a restriction on the number of addresses you could order or on how many times you can do that.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All Linux dedicated servers hosting that we offer come with three IP addresses by default and you can use them in any way you see fit. If you require additional IPs for any reason, you'll be able to add them to your web server with several clicks without restrictions as to their number or the length of time for which you'll be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in case you require the IPs straight away, you may add them to the package during the signup procedure, while in case it turns out that you require more IPs at some point later on, you could order them just as effortlessly using your billing area and we'll assign them to your dedicated server a couple of minutes later. The dedicated IPs could be renewed along with the hosting server plan on a monthly basis and you could decide if you will renew all of them or just a few - in case you no longer require that many. You could use the IPs both for your own websites and for client hosting accounts - provided you're using the dedicated server as an Internet hosting reseller platform.
