An IP address is a unique number that identifies a website or a hosting server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it will be used just by your websites and will not 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 need additional ones for various uses. In case you have a web-based store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make sure that the payment information your clients submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors input 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 server. You may also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better performance for a certain website, which shall affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting

All Linux dedicated web hosting we offer feature 3 IP addresses by default and you could use them in any way you see fit. In the event that you need more IPs for any reason, you may add them to your server with a couple of mouse clicks with no limitations as to their number or to the period for which you'll be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and if you require the IPs straight away, you'll be able to add them to the package during the signup procedure, while in the event that it turns out that you require more IPs at some point afterwards, you may order them just as simply through your billing area and we will assign them to your dedicated server a couple of minutes later. The dedicated IPs may be renewed together with the web server plan on a monthly basis and you can choose if you shall renew all of them or simply a few - if you no longer need that many. You'll be able to use the IPs both for your own sites and for client hosting accounts - if you are using the dedicated server as a hosting reseller platform.
