An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes a website or a web server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used just by your websites and won't be shared with other people as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. Provided you have your own web server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for a variety of purposes. Provided you have an electronic store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make sure that the payment information which your customers submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some kind and you want the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which ought to be different from the one that you already have on the web server. You could also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better efficiency for a particular website, which will affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
Every single dedicated server which we offer comes with three dedicated IP addresses supplied 100 % free on top of the monthly fee for the package deal. We also supply you with the chance to add more IPs to your hosting server both when you sign up and at a later time through your billing Control Panel, so you'll be able to order the IPs whenever you require them with no limitation on the amount or on how frequently you get them. They can be purchased in groups of 3 and shall be assigned to your server instantly. You could renew them with the hosting plan and you'll be able to choose if you will renew all of them, or a smaller number - in case you no longer require the rest. Any dedicated IP address allotted to your server could be used for any purpose: for a personal site, for a software hosting server, or for a hosting customer - in case you've decided to start your own hosting enterprise and you are reselling accounts to other people.
