An IP address is a unique number which separates a site or a hosting server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed solely by your sites and will not be shared with others 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 require additional ones for many different purposes. Provided you have an online store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make sure that the payment info your clients submit will be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some kind and you wish the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which has to be different from the one which you already have on the server. You may also need an individual IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better efficiency for a particular website, which shall influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting

All Linux dedicated hosting we offer include three IP addresses by default and you could use them in any way you see fit. In case you need more IPs for any reason, you can add them to your server with just a few clicks without any limitations 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 in the event that you need the IPs straight away, you could add them to the package deal during the signup process, while if it turns out that you require more IPs at some point later, you'll be able to order them just as quickly from your billing area and we shall assign them to your dedicated server a few minutes later. The dedicated IPs can be renewed along with the server plan on a monthly basis and you can determine if you shall renew all of them or just a few - in case you no longer need that many. You'll be able to use the IPs both for your own Internet sites and for client hosting accounts - when you're using the dedicated server as a hosting reseller platform.
