An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes a website or a hosting server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed exclusively by your sites and shall not be shared with other people as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. In case you have your own web server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for a variety of purposes. In case you have an online store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make sure that the payment information that your customers submit will be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some sort and you want the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which ought to be different from the one which you already have on the server. You could also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better performance for a particular site, which will influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
Every single dedicated server that we offer features 3 dedicated IP addresses supplied 100 % free on top of the monthly fee for the package. We also give you the opportunity to add more IPs to your hosting server both when you sign up and at a later time through your billing CP, so you'll be able to order the IPs whenever you need them with no limitation on the number or on how often you get them. They can be purchased in groups of 3 and will be assigned to your server right away. You may renew them with the web hosting plan and you could choose if you will renew all of them, or a smaller number - if you no longer need the rest. Any dedicated IP address assigned to your server may be used for any purpose: for a personal Internet site, for a software hosting server, or for a hosting customer - in the event that you have decided to launch your own web hosting company and you are reselling accounts to other people.
