An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes a site or a hosting server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be used solely by your sites and won't be shared with other people as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. Provided you have your own server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for many different uses. Provided you have an electronic store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment info your clients submit will be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some kind and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which ought to be different from the one which you already have on the hosting server. You could also need an independent IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better performance for a certain Internet site, which will affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting
Every dedicated server we offer features 3 dedicated IP addresses provided totally free on top of the monthly fee for the plan. We also give you the chance to add more IPs to your hosting server both when you sign up and at a later time using your billing Control Panel, so you can order the IPs whenever you require them with no limitation on the number or on how often you get them. They may be purchased in groups of 3 and will be assigned to your hosting server immediately. You'll be able to renew them with the hosting plan and you could decide if you'll renew all of them, or a smaller number - in case you no longer need the rest. Each dedicated IP address allotted to your server may be used for any purpose: for a personal site, for a software server, or for a hosting client - in case you have decided to launch your own Internet hosting company and you are reselling accounts to other people.
