An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes a website or a hosting server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed exclusively by your sites and shall not be shared with others as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. Provided you have your own server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for many different uses. If you have an online store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make sure that the payment info your customers submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some kind and you would like the usernames and the passwords which 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 might also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better efficiency for a certain site, which may influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

We supply 3 free dedicated IP addresses with each and every dedicated server that we offer, but in case you require more, you may order them with ease and they'll be assigned to your web server right away. The upgrade can be purchased both on our order page and in the billing CP, so you'll be able to get additional IPs whenever you require them - in the very beginning or at any time later on. You'll be able to order the upgrade in increments of three and add as many IP addresses as you require at any moment. You could renew just the IPs which you need along with the Internet hosting plan, so if, eventually, you need less IPs, you can simply renew those you need and the other ones shall be removed from your server. With our upgrade, you can use a dedicated address not just for your websites and applications, but also for your clients’ sites and apps - if you are using the machine to run a hosting reseller enterprise. Any IP on top of the default three IPs can be used for as long as you require it.
