An IP address is a unique number that identifies a site or a server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed just by your websites and will not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. Provided you have your own hosting server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for a variety of uses. If you have an Internet store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, to ensure that the payment information which your clients 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 that visitors input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which needs to be different from the one that you already have on the server. You may also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better performance for a given website, which will affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated servers which we offer come with 3 IP addresses by default and you'll be able to use them in whatever way you see fit. In case you need additional IPs for any reason, you could add them to your hosting server with just a few mouse clicks without any restrictions as to their number or to the period 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 can add them to the package during the signup process, while in the event that it turns out that you require more IPs at some point afterwards, you may order them just as easily through your billing area and we shall assign them to your dedicated server a few minutes later. The dedicated IPs may be renewed along with the hosting server plan on a monthly basis and you'll be able to determine if you shall renew all of them or only a few - if you no longer require that many. You may use the IPs both for your own sites and for customer hosting accounts - if you're using the dedicated server as a hosting reseller platform.
