An IP address is a unique number which identifies a website or a server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed solely by your Internet sites and shall not be shared with other people as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. Provided you have your own hosting server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for different uses. If you have a web-based store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, in order to ensure that the payment info your customers submit will be encrypted and safe. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you want the usernames and the passwords that 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 could also need a separate IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better overall performance for a given Internet site, which shall affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
If you opt for one of the VPS servers plans we provide, you shall get one dedicated IP address, and with every web server that's ordered with a CP, we provide a second one totally free. If you wish to use additional IPs, you'll be able to add them to your package with only a few clicks whenever you want. If you need them immediately, for instance, you may 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 can add them via your billing Control Panel and they'll be available within a matter of minutes. You may assign them to personal Internet sites with a few mouse clicks or to any of your clients - if you're using the virtual server to start your own Internet hosting firm. You'll be able to take full advantage of this upgrade as often as you wish and you could renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for so long as needed.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
When you acquire one of our dedicated server solutions, you will get 3 IP addresses at no additional charge and you could use them for any purpose. If you need even more IPs, you can request them whenever you want via your billing area and we'll assign them to the web server a few minutes later. You can also get more IPs during the signup process and they'll be available on your machine as soon as it's set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of 3 and you can select how many addresses you'll order and how long you will use them, as you can choose the number of IPs that you'll renew each month with your hosting server plan. Any IP address that is assigned to your dedicated server could be used not just for your personal content, but for any Internet site or app which your clients may have - if you have acquired the server with the aim to resell the disk space to third parties.
