An IP address is a unique number that separates a website or a hosting server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be used only by your sites and shall not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared hosting accounts. In case you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for many different purposes. Provided you have an electronic store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, to make certain that the payment information which your customers submit will be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some type and you want the usernames and the passwords that visitors input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which has to be different from the one that you already have on the hosting server. You may also need an individual IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better performance for a certain Internet site, which shall affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you get one of our dedicated server packages, you'll get 3 IP addresses at no additional charge and you could use them for any purpose. If you require even more IPs, you may request them anytime through your billing area and we will assign them to the web server a few minutes later. You can also get additional IPs during the signup process and they shall be available on your hosting server the instant it's all set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of 3 and you can select how many addresses you'll order and how long you'll use them, as you could choose the number of IPs that you will renew each month with your hosting server plan. Any IP address that's assigned to your dedicated server may be used not just for your personal content, but for any website or app which your customers may have - if you have bought the server with the goal to resell the disk space to third parties.
