An IP address is a unique number which identifies a site or a hosting server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed just by your websites and will not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. If you have your own hosting server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for many different purposes. If you have an Internet store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make sure that the payment information your clients submit will be encrypted and safe. The same is valid if you have a login form of some sort and you wish the usernames and the passwords that visitors input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which needs to be different from the one which you already have on the hosting server. You might also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better efficiency for a particular Internet site, which will influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server which we offer includes 3 dedicated IP addresses supplied absolutely free on top of the monthly fee for the plan. We also offer the opportunity to add more IPs to your hosting server both when you sign up and at a later time via your billing Control Panel, so you may order the IPs whenever you need them without a limit on the amount or on how often you get them. They could be purchased in groups of 3 and shall be assigned to your hosting server right away. You could renew them with the Internet hosting plan and you'll be able to choose if you'll renew all of them, or a smaller amount - if you no longer require the rest. Any dedicated IP address allotted to your web server can be used for any purpose: for a personal site, for a software web server, or for a hosting customer - in case you have decided to start your own Internet hosting enterprise and you're reselling accounts to other people.
