An IP address is a unique number which separates a site or a hosting server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be used only by your Internet sites and shall not be shared with others 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 additional ones for various purposes. In case you have an online store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment information your clients submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some sort and you want the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which ought to be different from the one that you already have on the server. You might also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better efficiency for a given website, which shall affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we offer include three IP addresses by default and you can use them in any way you see fit. In case you need more IPs for any reason, you could add them to your server with several clicks without any limitations as to their number or to the period for which you will be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in the event that you need the IPs right away, you could add them to the package deal during the signup process, while if it turns out that you require more IPs at some point later, you may order them just as easily via your billing area and we'll assign them to your dedicated server several minutes later. The dedicated IPs can be renewed together with the server plan on a monthly basis and you could determine if you shall renew all of them or only a few - in case you no longer need that many. You'll be able to use the IPs both for your own Internet sites and for customer hosting accounts - when you're using the dedicated server as an Internet hosting reseller platform.
