An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes a website or a server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be used exclusively by your Internet sites and won't be shared with others as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. Provided you have your own hosting server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for different uses. In case you have an online store, for example, you will need an SSL certificate for it, so as to ensure that the payment information which your customers submit will be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some sort and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which should be different from the one which you already have on the server. You might also need a separate IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better overall performance for a given website, which will affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting

We supply three totally free dedicated IP addresses with every dedicated server that we offer, but in case you require more, you can order them without difficulty and they will be assigned to your hosting server immediately. The upgrade is available both on our order page and in the billing Control Panel, so you'll be able to get additional IPs whenever you require them - in the beginning or anytime afterwards. You'll be able to order the upgrade in increments of three and add as many IP addresses as you need at any given time. You can renew only the IPs which you need along with the Internet hosting plan, so if, sooner or later, you need less IPs, you could simply renew those that you need and the other ones will be removed from your web server. With our upgrade, you'll be able to use a dedicated address not just for your websites and applications, but also for your clients’ websites and applications - if you're using the machine to run an Internet hosting reseller enterprise. Any IP on top of the default 3 IPs could be used for as long as you need it.
