An IP address is a unique number which identifies a site or a hosting server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed solely by your websites and won't be shared with others as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. Provided you have your own web server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for a variety of purposes. In case you have an electronic store, for example, you will need an SSL certificate for it, so as to ensure that the payment info which your clients submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you would like the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which should be different from the one which you already have on the machine. You might also need an individual IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better performance for a certain site, which may affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting

All Linux dedicated hosting that we offer feature 3 IP addresses by default and you can use them in whatever way you see fit. In case you require more IPs for any reason, you could add them to your server with just a few mouse clicks without limitations as to their number or the period for which you shall be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and if you require the IPs right away, you could add them to the package deal during the signup process, while if it turns out that you need more IPs at some point later on, you can order them just as effortlessly via your billing area and we'll assign them to your dedicated server a couple of minutes later. The dedicated IPs may be renewed along with the web server plan on a monthly basis and you could determine if you will renew all of them or simply a few - in case you no longer require that many. You'll be able to use the IPs both for your own Internet sites and for customer hosting accounts - when you are using the dedicated server as an Internet hosting reseller platform.
