An IP address is a unique number that separates a site or a server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it will be used just by your websites and won't be shared with others as it happens with shared hosting accounts. Provided you have your own web server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for various purposes. If you have an electronic store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment info that your customers submit will be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some type and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which ought to be different from the one that you already have on the web server. You could also need an individual IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better efficiency for a certain Internet site, which will influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated servers we offer feature three IP addresses by default and you'll be able to use them in any way you see fit. In case you require even more IPs for any reason, you could add them to your web server with just a few clicks without any limits 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 in the event that you require the IPs straight away, you may add them to the package deal during the signup procedure, while if it turns out that you need more IPs at some point later on, you may order them just as effortlessly through your billing area and we'll assign them to your dedicated server a few moments later. The dedicated IPs can be renewed with the server plan on a monthly basis and you can choose if you will renew all of them or only a few - in the event that you no longer require that many. You can use the IPs both for your own websites and for customer hosting accounts - when you're using the dedicated server as an Internet hosting reseller platform.
