An IP address is a unique number which separates a website or a hosting server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used only by your sites and won't be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared hosting accounts. If you have your own web server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for many different uses. If you have an electronic store, for example, you will need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make sure that the payment info which your customers submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some kind and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which should be different from the one which you already have on the hosting server. You may also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better performance for a certain Internet site, which shall affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
If you choose to buy one of our VPS servers, we shall supply you with one dedicated IP address by default and a second one free of charge - in case you add any of the hosting Control Panels that we offer to your order. More IPs could be purchased effortlessly in the event that you require them. The option is offered on the order page, so if you need more IPs from the beginning, we can assign them to your VPS the minute it is put in place and you can use them as soon as you begin using the machine. If you need them for any reason later on, you can order them from the billing area and they'll be available in a couple of minutes. This way, you can assign dedicated IP addresses not only to your own websites, but also to clients' websites provided you've started out a reseller business. You could order IPs as frequently as needed and renew them together with your virtual web server plan. If, eventually, you need less IPs, you'll have the chance to renew only those that you require, while the extra ones shall be taken off your hosting server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server which we offer includes three dedicated IP addresses provided 100 % free on top of the monthly fee for the package. We also supply you with 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 may order the IPs whenever you need them with no limitation on the number or on how frequently you get them. They could be purchased in groups of three and shall be assigned to your web server instantly. You can renew them with the web hosting plan and you can choose if you'll renew all of them, or a smaller number - in case you no longer need the rest. Each and every dedicated IP address allotted to your web server can be used for any purpose: for a personal site, for a software hosting server, or for a hosting customer - if you have decided to start your own web hosting enterprise and you're reselling accounts to other people.
