An IP address is a unique number which identifies an Internet site or a hosting server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed solely by your Internet sites and shall not be shared with others as it happens with shared hosting accounts. Provided you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for different purposes. If you have an electronic store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make sure that the payment information that your customers submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which should be different from the one that you already have on the server. You may also need an individual IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better efficiency for a given website, which shall influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting

All Linux dedicated web hosting which we offer come with 3 IP addresses by default and you can use them in any way you see fit. In the event that you require more IPs for any reason, you could add them to your web server with a couple of mouse clicks without any restrictions as to their number or to the duration 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 can add them to the package during the signup process, while in the event that it turns out that you need more IPs at some point later, you could order them just as quickly from your billing area and we shall assign them to your dedicated server a few minutes later. The dedicated IPs may be renewed along with the web server plan on a monthly basis and you can determine if you shall renew all of them or simply a few - in case you no longer need that many. You could use the IPs both for your own Internet sites and for customer hosting accounts - provided you're using the dedicated server as an Internet hosting reseller platform.
