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 used exclusively by your Internet sites and shall not be shared with other people as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. If you have your own server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for different uses. In case you have an Internet store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, to make certain that the payment info which your clients submit will be encrypted and secure. The same is valid if you have a login form of some type and you wish the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which needs to be different from the one that you already have on the hosting server. You may also need a separate IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better overall performance for a certain site, which shall affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting
We supply three free dedicated IP addresses with each and every dedicated server that we offer, but in case you need more, you'll be able to order them easily and they will be assigned to your server right away. The upgrade can be acquired both on our order page and inside the billing Control Panel, so you'll be able to get additional IPs whenever you need them - in the beginning or at any time later. You could order the upgrade in increments of three and add as many IP addresses as you want at any moment. You may renew only the IPs that you want along with the Internet hosting plan, so if, at some point, you need less IPs, you could simply renew those you need and the other ones will be removed from your hosting server. With our upgrade, you'll be able to use a dedicated address not only for your sites and apps, but also for your clients’ Internet sites and applications - in case you are using the server to run a web hosting reseller enterprise. Any IP on top of the default three IPs can be employed for so long as you need it.
