An IP address is a unique number which identifies an Internet site or a web server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed exclusively by your Internet sites and shall not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. If you have your own web server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for various uses. Provided you have a web-based store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment info that your clients submit will be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some sort and you want the usernames and the passwords that visitors enter to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which should be different from the one which you already have on the hosting server. You may also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better efficiency for a certain website, which shall affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated web hosting plans that we offer feature 3 IP addresses by default and you can use them in any way you see fit. In the event that you require even more IPs for any reason, you may add them to your server with just a few clicks with no limitations as to their number or the duration for which you shall be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in the event that you need the IPs straight away, you can add them to the package deal during the signup process, while in case it turns out that you require more IPs at some point later on, you'll be able to order them just as easily from your billing area and we shall assign them to your dedicated server a few moments later. The dedicated IPs can be renewed together with the server plan on a monthly basis and you'll be able to decide if you'll renew all of them or just a few - in case you no longer need that many. You'll be able to use the IPs both for your own websites and for customer hosting accounts - if you are using the dedicated server as a hosting reseller platform.
