An IP address is a unique number which separates a site or a hosting server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed solely by your sites and will not be shared with others as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. If you have your own hosting server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for many different purposes. In case you have an Internet store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make sure that the payment information your customers submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some sort and you wish the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which needs to be different from the one that you already have on the machine. You might also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better performance for a particular website, which will affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Hosting
If you choose to order one of our Linux VPS hosting packages, we will supply you with one dedicated IP address by default and a second one absolutely free - if you add any of the hosting Control Panels that we offer to your order. More IPs could be purchased with ease in the event that you need them. The option is provided on the order page, so in the event that you require more IPs from the beginning, we shall be able to assign them to your VPS the instant it's set up and you can use them the second you begin using the hosting server. If you need them for any reason later on, you can order them through the billing area and they shall be available in a couple of minutes. In this way, you shall be able to assign dedicated IP addresses not only to your own sites, but also to customers' sites if you have started out a reseller enterprise. You'll be able to order IPs as often as needed and renew them along with your virtual server plan. If, eventually, you require less IPs, you'll have the chance to renew just those which you need, while the extra ones will be removed from your web server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each dedicated server we offer includes three dedicated IP addresses provided totally free on top of the monthly fee for the package deal. We also supply you with the opportunity to add more IPs to your server both when you sign up and at a later time using your billing CP, so you'll be able to order the IPs whenever you need them with no restriction on the amount or on how often you get them. They can be purchased in groups of three and shall be assigned to your hosting server instantly. You could renew them with the hosting plan and you can choose if you'll renew all of them, or a smaller number - in case you no longer require the rest. Each dedicated IP address allotted to your hosting server could be used for any purpose: for a personal site, for a software server, or for a hosting customer - if you have decided to start your own Internet hosting enterprise and you are reselling accounts to other people.
