An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes an Internet site or a hosting server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used just by your Internet sites and will not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. Provided you have your own server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for many different purposes. If you have an Internet store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, so as to ensure that the payment information your clients submit shall be encrypted and protected. The same is valid if you have a login form of some type and you wish the usernames and the passwords which visitors input to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which has to be different from the one that you already have on the hosting server. You may also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better overall performance for a given Internet site, which will affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Each and every dedicated server which we offer includes three dedicated IP addresses supplied 100 % free on top of the monthly fee for the plan. We also offer the opportunity to add more IPs to your server both when you sign up and at a later time via your billing CP, so you could order the IPs whenever you require them with no limitation on the amount or on how often you get them. They may be purchased in groups of 3 and will be assigned to your hosting server instantly. You may renew them with the Internet hosting plan and you'll be able to decide if you will renew all of them, or a smaller number - if you no longer need the rest. Every dedicated IP address allotted to your server could be used for any purpose: for a personal website, for a software web server, or for a hosting client - in case you have decided to start off your own Internet hosting firm and you are reselling accounts to other people.
