An IP address is a unique number which separates an Internet site or a web server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed just by your websites and shall not be shared with other people as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. If you have your own server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for various purposes. Provided you have an Internet store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make certain that the payment info your clients submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid if you have a login form of some sort and you want the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which should be different from the one which you already have on the hosting server. You may also need an individual IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better performance for a given Internet site, which may influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated servers we offer feature 3 IP addresses by default and you could use them in whatever way you see fit. In the event that you require more IPs for any reason, you'll be able to add them to your hosting server with several clicks with no limits as to their number or the length of time for which you shall be able to employ 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 package during the signup process, while in case it turns out that you require more IPs at some point afterwards, you'll be able to order them just as simply from your billing area and we shall assign them to your dedicated server several minutes later. The dedicated IPs may be renewed along with the web server plan on a monthly basis and you can decide if you'll renew all of them or only a few - in case you no longer require that many. You'll be able to use the IPs both for your own sites and for customer hosting accounts - provided you are using the dedicated server as an Internet hosting reseller platform.
