An IP address is a unique number which identifies an Internet site or a server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used solely by your websites and will not be shared with others as it happens with shared hosting accounts. If you have your own hosting server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for different purposes. If you have an Internet store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make certain that the payment information your customers submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some kind and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which ought 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 desire a slightly better efficiency for a given Internet site, which shall affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
We provide three absolutely free dedicated IP addresses with each and every dedicated server we offer, but in case you require more, you'll be able to order them with ease and they'll be assigned to your web server immediately. The upgrade can be purchased both on our order page and within the billing Control Panel, so you can get additional IPs whenever you require them - in the beginning or anytime later. You'll be able to order the upgrade in increments of three and include as many IP addresses as you require at any given time. You can renew just the IPs that you want together with the web hosting plan, so if, sooner or later, you need less IPs, you can simply renew those you need and the other ones shall be removed from your web server. With our upgrade, you could use a dedicated address not just for your websites and apps, but also for your clients’ websites and apps - in case you are using the server to run a web hosting reseller company. Any IP on top of the default three IPs could be used for as long as you require it.
