An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes an Internet site or a web server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed just by your sites and won't be shared with other people as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. If you have your own hosting server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for many different uses. If you have a web-based store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, to make certain that the payment info which your clients submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you would like the usernames and the passwords that visitors enter to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which has to be different from the one which you already have on the hosting server. You might also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better efficiency for a given Internet site, which will affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting

All Linux dedicated web hosting we offer come with 3 IP addresses by default and you could use them in whatever way you see fit. In the event that you require even more IPs for any reason, you could add them to your hosting server with a couple of mouse clicks without any restrictions as to their number or the duration for which you'll be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and if you require the IPs right from the start, you could add them to the package during the signup procedure, while if it turns out that you need more IPs at some point later on, you'll be able to order them just as easily using your billing area and we'll assign them to your dedicated server a few minutes later. The dedicated IPs could be renewed with the web server plan on a monthly basis and you could choose if you will renew all of them or simply a few - in case you no longer require that many. You could use the IPs both for your own websites and for customer hosting accounts - provided you are using the dedicated server as an Internet hosting reseller platform.
