An IP address is a unique number that identifies a site or a server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed only by your websites and will not be shared with others as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. In case you have your own hosting server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for various uses. If you have an electronic store, for example, you will need an SSL certificate for it, in order to ensure that the payment info which your customers submit will be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some sort and you want the usernames and the passwords which visitors input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which has to be different from the one that you already have on the server. You might also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better overall performance for a particular Internet site, which will affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated web hosting plans we offer feature three IP addresses by default and you could use them in any way you see fit. If you need additional IPs for any reason, you may add them to your server with several mouse clicks with no limitations as to their number or the length of time for which you will be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in the event that you require the IPs straight away, you may add them to the package during the signup process, while if it turns out that you require more IPs at some point afterwards, you could order them just as easily from your billing area and we'll assign them to your dedicated server several minutes later. The dedicated IPs could be renewed along with the web server plan on a monthly basis and you'll be able to decide if you shall renew all of them or only a few - in the event that you no longer need that many. You may use the IPs both for your own websites and for customer hosting accounts - when you're using the dedicated server as a web hosting reseller platform.
