An IP address is a unique number that separates a site or a web server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used just by your sites and shall not be shared with other people as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. In case you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for various purposes. If you have an electronic store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, so as to ensure that the payment info which your clients submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some type and you wish the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which should be different from the one which you already have on the hosting server. You could also need a separate IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better overall performance for a certain website, which may affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS
Each and every VPS package which we offer comes with 1 dedicated IP address and if you add a hosting Control Panel to it, we'll provide you with a second one at no additional cost, so that you can use it as you see fit. If you wish to use more IPs, you shall be able to order them with no more than a couple of clicks whenever you want, since you will discover this kind of an option both on our order page and inside your billing Control Panel. In the first case, the dedicated addresses shall be available the instant the virtual server is ready, 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 so long as you want. They can come in handy not just for your own sites, but also for the sites of any clients which you may have in the event that you are using the virtual server to run a web hosting reseller business. There is no limitation on how many times you can order additional IPs or on the number of of them you'll be able to use with your server at any moment.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting
All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages we offer include 3 IP addresses by default and you could use them in any way you see fit. If you need additional IPs for any reason, you'll be able to add them to your web server with just a few mouse clicks without any limits as to their number or the period for which you'll be able to employ them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in the event that you require the IPs right away, you can add them to the package deal during the signup procedure, while in the event that it turns out that you need more IPs at some point later, you'll be able to order them just as quickly from your billing area and we will assign them to your dedicated server several minutes later. The dedicated IPs could be renewed together with the server plan on a monthly basis and you'll be able to choose if you shall renew all of them or only a few - in the event that you no longer need that many. You'll be able to use the IPs both for your own Internet sites and for client hosting accounts - if you are using the dedicated server as an Internet hosting reseller platform.
