An IP address is a unique number which identifies an Internet site or a hosting server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed only by your sites and will not be shared with others as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. In case you have your own server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for a variety of uses. In case you have an online store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, so as to ensure that the payment information which your clients submit will be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some sort and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which has to be different from the one which you already have on the machine. You may also need a separate IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better overall performance for a certain website, which shall influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting

All Linux dedicated hosting that we offer feature three IP addresses by default and you could use them in whatever way you see fit. In case you need more IPs for any reason, you may add them to your server with a couple of mouse clicks without restrictions as to their number or the length of time for which you'll be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in case you require the IPs right from the start, you could add them to the plan during the signup process, while in the event that it turns out that you need more IPs at some point later on, you may order them just as simply via your billing area and we will assign them to your dedicated server a few moments later. The dedicated IPs can be renewed together with the server plan on a monthly basis and you'll be able to choose if you shall renew all of them or simply a few - if you no longer require that many. You could use the IPs both for your own sites and for client hosting accounts - when you're using the dedicated server as a hosting reseller platform.
