An IP address is a unique number which identifies a website or a hosting server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed solely by your websites and shall not be shared with others as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. In case you have your own hosting server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for different uses. If you have an online store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make certain that the payment information your customers submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some type and you want the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which needs to be different from the one which you already have on the web server. You may also need a separate IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better functionality for a given site, which shall affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting
We supply 3 absolutely free dedicated IP addresses with every single dedicated server we offer, but if you need more, you may order them without difficulty and they'll be assigned to your machine immediately. The upgrade can be purchased both on our order page and inside the billing Control Panel, so you can get additional IPs whenever you require them - in the beginning or at any time 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 which you need along with the web hosting plan, so if, at one point, you need less IPs, you can simply renew those that 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 Internet sites and apps, but also for your clients’ websites and apps - in case you're using the server to run a web hosting reseller company. Any IP on top of the default 3 IPs can be used for so long as you need it.
