An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes a website or a server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed only by your Internet sites and won't be shared with other people as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. Provided you have your own hosting server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for different purposes. In case you have an Internet store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, in order to ensure that the payment info that your customers 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 which visitors input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which should be different from the one that 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 desire a slightly better efficiency for a given website, which will affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated servers we offer come with three IP addresses by default and you could use them in any way you see fit. If you require additional IPs for any reason, you'll be able to add them to your web server with a couple of clicks without any 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 need the IPs right away, you could add them to the package deal during the signup process, while in case it turns out that you need more IPs at some point later on, you'll be able to order them just as simply via your billing area and we shall assign them to your dedicated server a couple of minutes later. The dedicated IPs may be renewed with the hosting server plan on a monthly basis and you'll be able to choose if you'll renew all of them or simply a few - in the event that you no longer need that many. You can use the IPs both for your own Internet sites and for customer hosting accounts - when you are using the dedicated server as an Internet hosting reseller platform.
