An IP address is a unique number that separates a site or a web server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed just by your websites and won't be shared with other people as it happens with shared hosting accounts. Provided you have your own server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for a variety of purposes. Provided you have an online store, for example, you will need an SSL certificate for it, in order to ensure that the payment information that your customers submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some type and you want 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 might also need an independent IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better overall performance for a particular website, which shall affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we offer come with 3 IP addresses by default and you could use them in any way you see fit. In case you need more IPs for any reason, you'll be able to add them to your hosting server with a couple of clicks with no restrictions as to their number or the length of time for which you will be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and if you require the IPs straight away, you could add them to the package during the signup procedure, while if it turns out that you require more IPs at some point afterwards, you'll be able to order them just as easily through your billing area and we shall assign them to your dedicated server a few moments later. The dedicated IPs could be renewed with the hosting server plan on a monthly basis and you'll be able to determine if you will renew all of them or only a few - in case you no longer require that many. You may use the IPs both for your own Internet sites and for client hosting accounts - if you are using the dedicated server as a hosting reseller platform.
