An IP address is a unique number that identifies an Internet site or a hosting server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be used only by your websites and won't be shared with others as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. If you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for many different uses. Provided you have an Internet store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, to ensure that the payment info which your clients submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid if you have a login form of some sort and you wish the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which has to be different from the one which you already have on the machine. You could also need an independent IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better overall performance for a given site, which may influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting
We provide three 100 % free dedicated IP addresses with every single dedicated server which we offer, but in case you require more, you could order them without difficulty and they will be assigned to your server right away. The upgrade can be acquired both on our order page and in the billing Control Panel, so you could get additional IPs whenever you require them - in the beginning or anytime later. You can order the upgrade in increments of three and include as many IP addresses as you need at any given time. You may renew just the IPs that you need along with the hosting plan, so if, at one point, you need less IPs, you can simply renew those which you need and the other ones will be removed from your web server. With our upgrade, you could use a dedicated address not only for your websites and applications, but also for your clients’ Internet sites and apps - in the event that you are using the server to run an Internet hosting reseller company. Any IP on top of the default three IPs may be used for as long as you need it.
