An IP address is a unique number that separates a site or a server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used just by your websites and won't be shared with other people as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. Provided you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for different uses. In case you have a web-based store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, in order to ensure that the payment information which your customers 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 input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which ought to be different from the one which you already have on the web server. You might also need an independent IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better functionality for a given Internet site, which shall influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting

All Linux dedicated web hosting that we offer feature three IP addresses by default and you can use them in any way you see fit. In the event that you require additional IPs for any reason, you can add them to your server with a couple of mouse clicks with no limits as to their number or to the duration for which you shall be able to employ them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and if you require the IPs right from the start, you could add them to the plan during the signup procedure, while if it turns out that you require more IPs at some point afterwards, you could order them just as simply via your billing area and we shall assign them to your dedicated server a couple of minutes later. The dedicated IPs may be renewed together with the server plan on a monthly basis and you could choose if you shall renew all of them or only a few - in case you no longer need that many. You may use the IPs both for your own Internet sites and for client hosting accounts - if you're using the dedicated server as a web hosting reseller platform.
