An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes an Internet site or a hosting server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed only by your websites and shall not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. In case you have your own hosting server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for many different purposes. In case you have an electronic store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, to make certain that the payment info your clients submit will be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some type and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors input to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which needs to be different from the one that you already have on the server. You could also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better overall performance for a certain Internet site, which may affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting
We give three 100 % free dedicated IP addresses with every single dedicated server we offer, but if you require more, you can order them easily and they shall be assigned to your hosting server immediately. The upgrade is available both on our order page and in the billing CP, so you can get additional IPs whenever you need them - in the beginning or anytime later on. You may order the upgrade in increments of three and add as many IP addresses as you require at any given time. You'll be able to renew just the IPs that you need along with the Internet hosting plan, so if, at one point, you need less IPs, you can simply renew those you need and the other ones will be removed from your web server. With our upgrade, you could use a dedicated address not just for your sites and apps, but also for your clients’ Internet sites and applications - if you're 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 require it.
