An IP address is a unique number which identifies an Internet site or a server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed exclusively by your Internet sites and will not be shared with other people as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. If you have your own hosting server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for various purposes. In case you have an online store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, 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 kind and you would like the usernames and the passwords that visitors enter 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 a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better efficiency for a certain Internet site, which will affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting
We provide three 100 % free dedicated IP addresses with every single dedicated server which we offer, but if you need more, you'll be able to order them effortlessly and they will be assigned to your server immediately. The upgrade can be purchased both on our order page and within the billing Control Panel, so you can get additional IPs whenever you require them - in the very beginning or anytime later. You could order the upgrade in increments of three and include as many IP addresses as you want at any time. You may renew just the IPs that you need together with the hosting plan, so if, eventually, you need less IPs, you may simply renew those you need and the other ones shall be removed from your hosting server. With our upgrade, you'll be able to use a dedicated address not only for your websites and applications, but also for your clients’ Internet sites and applications - in the event that you're using the server to run a hosting reseller enterprise. Any IP on top of the default three IPs could be employed for so long as you need it.
