An IP address is a unique number that identifies a site or a web server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed just by your websites and will not be shared with other people as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. In case you have your own web server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for a variety of uses. In case you have an electronic store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make sure that the payment information your clients submit will be encrypted and protected. 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 input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which has to be different from the one that you already have on the server. You may also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better overall performance for a given site, which will affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting
In case you acquire one of our dedicated server solutions, you'll get 3 IP addresses at no additional charge and you could use them for any purpose. If you require even more IPs, you'll be able to request them whenever you want via your billing area and we will assign them to the web server a couple of minutes later. You may even get additional IPs during the signup procedure and they shall be available on your machine the moment it's ready and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you'll be able to decide how many addresses you will order and how long you shall use them, as you can choose the number of IPs that you will renew every month with your server plan. Any IP address which is assigned to your dedicated server could be used not only for your personal content, but also for any Internet site or app which your customers may have - if you have bought the hosting server with the purpose to resell the disk space to third parties.
