An IP address is a unique number which separates a site or a hosting server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used exclusively by your websites and shall not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. In case you have your own hosting server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for a variety of uses. Provided you have a web-based store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, in order to ensure that the payment information that your customers submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid if you have a login form of some sort and you wish the usernames and the passwords that 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 web server. You might also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better performance for a given website, which will influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting

All dedicated hosting which we offer include 3 IP addresses by default and you could use them in whatever way you see fit. If you require more IPs for any reason, you may add them to your server with a few mouse clicks without any limitations as to their number or to the length of time for which you'll be able to employ them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in the event that you require the IPs right from the start, you'll be able to add them to the plan during the signup process, while in the event that it turns out that you require more IPs at some point later, you'll be able to order them just as quickly via your billing area and we'll assign them to your dedicated server a few minutes later. The dedicated IPs may be renewed together with the 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 may use the IPs both for your own websites and for client hosting accounts - when you are using the dedicated server as an Internet hosting reseller platform.
