An IP address is a unique number which identifies an Internet site or a web server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used just by your sites and won't be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared hosting accounts. Provided you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for different uses. In case you have an electronic store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make certain that the payment info that your clients submit will be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some kind and you want the usernames and the passwords that visitors input to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which should be different from the one that you already have on the hosting server. You could 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 Servers
All dedicated web hosting plans which we offer come with three IP addresses by default and you could use them in whatever way you see fit. In the event that you require more IPs for any reason, you can add them to your web server with a few clicks without any restrictions as to their number or the length of time for which you'll be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in case you need the IPs right away, you can add them to the package deal during the signup process, while if it turns out that you require more IPs at some point later on, you'll be able to order them just as easily via your billing area and we will assign them to your dedicated server a few minutes later. The dedicated IPs could be renewed with the hosting server plan on a monthly basis and you can determine if you shall renew all of them or simply a few - if you no longer require that many. You could use the IPs both for your own sites and for client hosting accounts - provided you are using the dedicated server as a hosting reseller platform.
