An IP address is a unique number that identifies an Internet site or a hosting server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed exclusively by your sites and shall not be shared with others as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. In case you have your own hosting server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for various purposes. Provided you have an online store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment info that your customers submit shall be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some type and you wish the usernames and the passwords that visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which has to 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 want a slightly better efficiency for a given site, which shall affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages which we offer feature 3 IP addresses by default and you'll be able to use them in whatever way you see fit. In the event that you need more IPs for any reason, you may add them to your web server with a few mouse clicks without any restrictions as to their number or to the period for which you shall be able to employ them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and if you require the IPs right from the start, you could add them to the plan during the signup procedure, while in case it turns out that you need more IPs at some point later, you'll be able to order them just as quickly from your billing area and we shall assign them to your dedicated server a couple of minutes later. The dedicated IPs may be renewed with the hosting server plan on a monthly basis and you can choose if you will renew all of them or just a few - if you no longer require that many. You may use the IPs both for your own sites and for customer hosting accounts - if you're using the dedicated server as an Internet hosting reseller platform.
