An IP address is a unique number which identifies a website or a hosting server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed solely by your sites and will not be shared with others as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. If you have your own hosting server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for various purposes. If you have an online store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make certain that the payment information your customers submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which should be different from the one which you already have on the server. You could also need an individual IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better efficiency for a certain site, which may influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers

If you opt for one of the VPS servers packages we supply, you'll get one dedicated IP address, and with any hosting server which is ordered with a Control Panel, we supply a second one 100 % free. If you would like to use additional IPs, you'll be able to add them to your package deal with a couple of mouse clicks at any time. In the event that you require them immediately, for example, you'll be able to add them to your order and they will be assigned to your VPS the instant it's set up. In case you need them later, you'll be able to add them via your billing Control Panel and they will be available within a matter of minutes. You could assign them to personal websites with several mouse clicks or to any of your clients - if you're using the virtual server to launch your own Internet hosting firm. You could take full advantage of this upgrade as often as you like and you may renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for so long as needed.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

In case you get one of our dedicated server solutions, you'll get three IP addresses at no additional charge and you may use them for any purpose. If you need additional IPs, you could request them whenever you want from your billing area and we will assign them to the web server a few minutes later. You can even get more IPs during the signup procedure and they'll be available on your machine the instant it's set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you may select how many addresses you'll order and how long you will use them, as you will be able to choose the number of IPs that you will renew on a monthly basis with your server plan. Any IP address that is assigned to your dedicated server could be used not just for your personal content, but also for any website or application which your clients may have - if you have acquired the hosting server with the intention to resell the disk space to third parties.
