An IP address is a unique number that separates a site or a hosting server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used only by your Internet sites and will not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared hosting accounts. If you have your own hosting server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for different purposes. If you have an Internet store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, to make certain that the payment information that your customers submit will be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some sort and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which needs to be different from the one which you already have on the machine. You may also need an individual IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better functionality for a certain site, which shall influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages we offer feature 3 IP addresses by default and you can use them in whatever way you see fit. If you require even more IPs for any reason, you can add them to your hosting server with a couple of clicks without limits as to their number or the length of time for which you shall be able to employ them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in case you require the IPs right from the start, you could 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 can order them just as easily through your billing area and we'll assign them to your dedicated server several minutes later. The dedicated IPs can be renewed together with the server plan on a monthly basis and you'll be able to choose if you shall renew all of them or simply a few - in the event that you no longer require that many. You can use the IPs both for your own websites and for client hosting accounts - when you're using the dedicated server as an Internet hosting reseller platform.
