An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes a website or a hosting server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used solely by your Internet sites and won't be shared with others as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. If you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for a variety of purposes. In case you have a web-based store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make sure that the payment info that your customers submit will be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some kind and you wish the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which ought to be different from the one that you already have on the web server. You could also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better functionality for a particular Internet site, which will affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
We provide three absolutely free dedicated IP addresses with each dedicated server we offer, but in the event that you need more, you'll be able to order them without difficulty and they shall be assigned to your hosting server without delay. The upgrade can be acquired both on our order page and within the billing CP, so you can get additional IPs whenever you require them - in the beginning or at any time afterwards. You could order the upgrade in increments of three and add as many IP addresses as you require at any time. You'll be able to renew only the IPs which you need along with the web hosting plan, so if, at one point, you need less IPs, you may simply renew those that you need and the other ones shall be removed from your server. With our upgrade, you can use a dedicated address not only for your sites and applications, but also for your clients’ Internet sites and apps - in the event that you are using the server to run a hosting reseller enterprise. Any IP on top of the default three IPs can be used for so long as you need it.
