An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes a site or a web server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed just by your sites and will not be shared with other people as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. If you have your own web server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for many different uses. In case you have an online store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make sure that the payment information that your customers submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some kind and you want the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in 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 web server. You may also need a separate IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better performance for a given website, which may influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS
Each and every VPS service which we provide comes with 1 dedicated IP address and if you add a web hosting CP to it, we shall provide you with a second one at no additional cost, so you can use it as you see fit. If you want to use more IPs, you'll be able to order them with just two mouse clicks anytime, since you will discover this type of an option both on our order page and in your billing CP. In the first case, the dedicated addresses shall be available the minute the virtual server is ready, while in the second - a few moments after you order them. You could renew the IPs together with your VPS plan and use them for so long as you would like. They can be useful not just for your own websites, but also for the Internet sites of any clients which you may have if you are using the virtual server to run a web hosting reseller business. There isn't any limitation on how frequently you'll be able to order additional IPs or on the number of of them you could use with your server at any time.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting
Each dedicated server that we offer features 3 dedicated IP addresses provided at no extra cost on top of the monthly fee for the package. We also offer the opportunity to add more IPs to your hosting server both when you sign up and at a later time through your billing Control Panel, so you'll be able to order the IPs whenever you require them with no limit on the number or on how often you get them. They can be purchased in groups of 3 and will be assigned to your web server right away. You'll be able to renew them with the Internet hosting plan and you may choose if you'll renew all of them, or a smaller number - in the event that you no longer require the rest. Every dedicated IP address allocated to your web server can be used for any purpose: for a personal site, for a software web server, or for a hosting customer - in case you've decided to start off your own web hosting company and you're reselling accounts to other people.
