An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes a website or a server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it will be used exclusively by your websites and won't be shared with other people as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. In case you have your own server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for many different uses. In case you have an online store, for instance, you will 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 sort and you wish the usernames and the passwords which 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 server. You might also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better performance for a given site, which may affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
We provide three absolutely free dedicated IP addresses with every single dedicated server we offer, but if you require more, you can order them with ease and they shall be assigned to your server without delay. The upgrade can be purchased both on our order page and within the billing Control Panel, so you could get additional IPs whenever you require them - in the very beginning or at any time later on. You could order the upgrade in increments of three and add as many IP addresses as you need at any time. You can renew only the IPs which you need along with the hosting plan, so if, sooner or later, you need less IPs, you could simply renew those that you need and the other ones will be removed from your web server. With our upgrade, you can use a dedicated address not just for your websites and apps, but also for your clients’ sites and apps - if you're using the machine to run an Internet hosting reseller business. Any IP on top of the default three IPs may be used for so long as you require it.
