An IP address is a unique number which separates a site or a server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed only by your Internet sites and will not be shared with others as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. Provided you have your own hosting server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for different purposes. In case you have an online store, for example, you will need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make certain that the payment info your customers submit will be encrypted and safe. The same is valid if you have a login form of some sort and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which ought to be different from the one that you already have on the web server. You could also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better efficiency for a particular Internet site, which shall influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting

All Linux dedicated hosting we offer come with 3 IP addresses by default and you'll be able to use them in whatever way you see fit. In the event that you need additional IPs for any reason, you can add them to your hosting server with a couple of mouse clicks without any limitations as to their number or to the period for which you'll be able to employ them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and if you need the IPs right away, you can add them to the package during the signup process, while in case it turns out that you need more IPs at some point afterwards, you can order them just as simply using your billing area and we shall assign them to your dedicated server several minutes later. The dedicated IPs could be renewed with the hosting server plan on a monthly basis and you could determine if you'll renew all of them or only a few - in the event that you no longer need that many. You can use the IPs both for your own Internet sites and for customer hosting accounts - provided you're using the dedicated server as a hosting reseller platform.
