An IP address is a unique number that separates a website or a server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used exclusively by your websites and shall not be shared with other people as it happens with shared hosting accounts. If you have your own hosting server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for various purposes. In case you have a web-based store, for example, you will need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make sure that the payment information which your customers submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which needs to be different from the one which you already have on the server. You may also need a separate IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better functionality for a given website, which will affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Every single VPS server service which we supply comes with one dedicated IP address and if you add an Internet hosting Control Panel to it, we shall supply you with a second one at no additional cost, so you can use it the way you see fit. If you wish to use more IPs, you'll be able to order them with no more than 2 mouse clicks at any time, since you'll locate such an option both on our order page and within your billing CP. In the first case, the dedicated addresses shall be available the minute the virtual server is set, while in the second - a few moments after you order them. You'll be able to renew the IPs together with your VPS plan and use them for as long as you desire. They can come in handy not simply for your own Internet sites, but also for the sites of any customers which you may have in the event that you're using the virtual server to run a web hosting reseller business. There is no restriction on how many times you'll be able to order additional IPs or on the amount of of them you'll be able to use with your web server at any moment.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server that we offer includes 3 dedicated IP addresses supplied at no extra cost on top of the monthly fee for the package. We also offer the chance to add more IPs to your hosting server both when you sign up and at a later time via your billing CP, so you'll be able to order the IPs whenever you need them with no limitation on the amount or on how often you get them. They can be purchased in groups of 3 and will be assigned to your server right away. You could renew them with the hosting plan and you may decide if you'll renew all of them, or a smaller amount - in the event that you no longer require the rest. Any dedicated IP address assigned to your server could be used for any purpose: for a personal website, for a software web server, or for a hosting customer - in the event that you've decided to start off your own Internet hosting enterprise and you're reselling accounts to other people.
