An IP address is a unique number that separates an Internet site or a server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed exclusively by your websites and shall not be shared with other people as it happens with shared hosting accounts. In case you have your own web server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for many different uses. In case you have an electronic store, for example, you will need an SSL certificate for it, to ensure that the payment information that your clients submit will be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in case you have a login form of some type and you want the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which should be different from the one that you already have on the hosting server. You might also need a separate IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better performance for a certain website, which may affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server that we offer includes 3 dedicated IP addresses provided absolutely free on top of the monthly fee for the package deal. We also supply you with the chance to add more IPs to your server both when you sign up and at a later time via your billing Control Panel, so you can order the IPs whenever you require them without a limitation on the amount or on how frequently you get them. They could be purchased in groups of three and will be assigned to your web server right away. You may renew them with the hosting plan and you may decide if you'll renew all of them, or a smaller amount - if you no longer need the rest. Any dedicated IP address allocated to your server could be used for any purpose: for a personal site, for a software web server, or for a hosting customer - in the event that you've decided to start your own Internet hosting business and you are reselling accounts to other people.
