An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes a site or a web server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed only by your websites and shall not be shared with others as it happens with shared hosting accounts. Provided you have your own hosting server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need extra ones for different uses. In case you have an electronic store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment info your clients submit will be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some sort and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors input to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which should be different from the one that you already have on the server. You might also need a separate IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better functionality for a given website, which may affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each dedicated server we offer comes with three 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 web server both when you sign up and at a later time using your billing CP, so you could order the IPs whenever you require them without a limitation on the amount or on how often you get them. They could be purchased in groups of three and shall be assigned to your web server right away. You'll be able to renew them with the Internet hosting plan and you could decide if you will renew all of them, or a smaller amount - in case you no longer need the rest. Any dedicated IP address allotted to your server may be used for any purpose: for a personal website, for a software hosting server, or for a hosting customer - in case you've decided to start your own Internet hosting firm and you're reselling accounts to other people.
