An IP address is a unique number that identifies a website or a server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be used only by your sites and won't be shared with others as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. Provided you have your own web server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for many different uses. If you have a web-based store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make certain that the payment info that your clients submit will be encrypted and secure. The same is valid if you have a login form of some type and you wish the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which needs to be different from the one which you already have on the hosting server. You may also need a separate IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better overall performance for a particular website, which shall affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

We supply 3 absolutely free dedicated IP addresses with each dedicated server that we offer, but in case you require more, you can order them easily and they'll be assigned to your web server immediately. The upgrade is available both on our order page and within the billing Control Panel, so you'll be able to get additional IPs whenever you require them - in the very beginning or at any time later on. You can order the upgrade in increments of three and include as many IP addresses as you require at any given time. You may renew just the IPs which you need along with the web hosting plan, so if, sooner or later, you need less IPs, you may simply renew those that you need and the other ones will be removed from your hosting server. With our upgrade, you can use a dedicated address not just for your sites and applications, but also for your clients’ Internet sites and applications - in the event that you are using the server to run a web hosting reseller business. Any IP on top of the default 3 IPs may be used for as long as you need it.
