An IP address is a unique number that identifies a site or a web server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be used just by your sites and won't be shared with others as it happens with shared hosting accounts. In case you have your own server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for many different uses. Provided you have an electronic store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, so as to ensure that the payment info which your clients submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some sort and you wish the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which needs to be different from the one which you already have on the hosting server. You might also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better overall performance for a particular site, which shall affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages we offer come with three IP addresses by default and you may use them in whatever way you see fit. In case you require more IPs for any reason, you could add them to your server with several clicks with no restrictions as to their number or to the duration for which you will be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in case you require the IPs right from the start, you can add them to the package deal during the signup process, while in the event that it turns out that you require more IPs at some point later, you could order them just as easily through your billing area and we'll assign them to your dedicated server a few moments later. The dedicated IPs may be renewed with the web server plan on a monthly basis and you'll be able to determine if you'll renew all of them or just a few - if you no longer need that many. You could use the IPs both for your own websites and for client hosting accounts - provided you are using the dedicated server as a web hosting reseller platform.
