An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes an Internet site or a hosting server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed only by your sites and will not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared hosting accounts. Provided you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for different uses. Provided you have an electronic store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make certain that the payment information which 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 secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which ought to be different from the one which you already have on the machine. You may also need a separate IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better functionality for a given site, which will influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
If you opt for one of the VPS servers packages which we provide, you shall get 1 dedicated IP address, and with any web server that is ordered with a Control Panel, we give a second one at no extra cost. If you want to use additional IPs, you could add them to your plan with only several mouse clicks whenever you want. If you need them at once, for instance, you'll be able to add them to your order and they'll be assigned to your VPS the moment it's set up. If you need them later, you can add them using your billing Control Panel and they will be available within a few minutes. You can assign them to personal sites with a couple of clicks or to any of your clients - if you're using the virtual server to launch your own Internet hosting company. You may take full advantage of this upgrade as often as you wish and you may renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for so long as required.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
In case you obtain one of our dedicated server solutions, you'll get 3 IP addresses at no additional charge and you could use them for any purpose. If you need additional IPs, you may request them at any time from your billing area and we'll assign them to the hosting server a couple of minutes later. You may also get additional IPs during the signup procedure and they shall be available on your server as soon as it is set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you'll be able to select how many addresses you'll order and how long you shall use them, since you could choose the number of IPs which you will renew every month with your hosting server plan. Any IP address that's assigned to your dedicated server can be used not just for your personal content, but for any website or app which your clients may have - if you have bought the hosting server with the goal to resell the disk space to third parties.
