An IP address is a unique number that separates a website or a web server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used only by your sites and will not be shared with others as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. Provided you have your own web server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for different purposes. In case you have a web-based store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, in order to ensure that the payment information that your clients submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some sort and you would like the usernames and the passwords that 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 server. You could also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better performance for a certain Internet site, which shall influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated servers we offer feature three IP addresses by default and you may use them in any way you see fit. If you need additional IPs for any reason, you'll be able to add them to your server with just a few mouse clicks with no limits as to their number or the duration for which you shall be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in the event that you require the IPs straight away, you'll be able to add them to the plan during the signup procedure, while in the event that it turns out that you need more IPs at some point later on, you could order them just as quickly using your billing area and we will assign them to your dedicated server a few minutes later. The dedicated IPs can be renewed with the server plan on a monthly basis and you can decide if you will renew all of them or simply a few - if you no longer require that many. You can use the IPs both for your own Internet sites and for customer hosting accounts - provided you are using the dedicated server as a web hosting reseller platform.
