An IP address is a unique number that separates an Internet site or a server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed just by your websites and will not be shared with others as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. If you have your own web server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for different uses. Provided you have a web-based store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, to ensure that the payment info that your clients submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some sort and you would like the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which should be different from the one which you already have on the server. You might also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better functionality for a particular site, which shall influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting
If you decide to buy one of our Linux VPS web hosting services, we'll supply you with one dedicated IP address by default and a second one totally free - in case you add any of the hosting Control Panels that we offer to your order. Additional IPs may be purchased with ease in case you need them. The option is provided on the order page, so in case you require more IPs from the start, we'll able to assign them to your VPS as soon as it is put in place and you can use them the moment you start using the web server. If you require them for any reason later on, you can order them through the billing area and they shall be available in a matter of minutes. This way, you shall be able to assign dedicated IP addresses not only to your own Internet sites, but also to clients' websites provided you have started out a reseller business. You could order IPs as frequently as required and renew them along with your virtual server plan. If, sooner or later, you need less IPs, you will have the chance to renew just those which you need, while the extra ones shall be taken off your server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Each and every dedicated server that we offer features 3 dedicated IP addresses provided at no extra cost on top of the monthly fee for the package deal. We also supply you with the opportunity to add more IPs to your web server both when you sign up and at a later time via your billing Control Panel, so you may order the IPs whenever you need them with no limit on the amount or on how frequently you get them. They could be purchased in groups of 3 and will be assigned to your hosting server instantly. You may renew them with the web hosting plan and you may decide if you will renew all of them, or a smaller number - in case you no longer require the rest. Any dedicated IP address assigned to your web server may be used for any purpose: for a personal website, for a software hosting server, or for a hosting client - if you have decided to start off your own Internet hosting enterprise and you are reselling accounts to other people.
