An IP address is a unique number that separates a site or a web server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed exclusively by your websites and will not be shared with other people as it happens with shared hosting accounts. Provided you have your own server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for different uses. Provided you have a web-based store, for example, you will need an SSL certificate for it, to make certain that the payment information which your customers submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid if you have a login form of some type and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors input to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which has to be different from the one that you already have on the machine. You might also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better overall performance for a given website, which may affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
We supply three absolutely free dedicated IP addresses with each and every dedicated server we offer, but in case you require more, you can order them with ease and they shall be assigned to your web server immediately. The upgrade is available both on our order page and within the billing CP, so you'll be able to get additional IPs whenever you need them - in the beginning or anytime afterwards. You'll be able to order the upgrade in increments of three and add as many IP addresses as you want at any moment. You can renew just the IPs that you want along with the hosting plan, so if, at some point, you need less IPs, you can simply renew those which you need and the other ones shall be removed from your server. With our upgrade, you could use a dedicated address not just for your websites and applications, but also for your clients’ sites and apps - if you are using the machine to run a hosting reseller enterprise. Any IP on top of the default 3 IPs can be employed for so long as you need it.
