An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes a site or a hosting server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used solely by your sites and shall not be shared with others as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. If you have your own web server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for various purposes. If you have an online store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, to ensure that the payment info your customers submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some type and you want the usernames and the passwords which visitors input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which ought to be different from the one which you already have on the web server. You may also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better efficiency for a given Internet site, which shall influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All Linux dedicated servers hosting which we offer come with three IP addresses by default and you may use them in whatever way you see fit. In case you require additional IPs for any reason, you could add them to your hosting server with several clicks without restrictions as to their number or to the length of time for which you'll be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in case you require the IPs straight away, you'll be able to add them to the package during the signup procedure, while if it turns out that you require more IPs at some point later, you can order them just as effortlessly via your billing area and we will assign them to your dedicated server a few minutes later. The dedicated IPs may be renewed along with the server plan on a monthly basis and you can choose if you will renew all of them or just a few - in the event that you no longer require that many. You can use the IPs both for your own sites and for client hosting accounts - when you're using the dedicated server as a hosting reseller platform.
