An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes a site or a hosting server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it will be used exclusively by your Internet sites and won't be shared with other people as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. If you have your own server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for many different purposes. Provided you have an online store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make certain that the payment info which your clients submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some kind and you wish the usernames and the passwords which visitors input to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which has to be different from the one which you already have on the server. You could also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you would like a slightly better functionality for a certain Internet site, which may affect its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated servers that we offer come with three IP addresses by default and you'll be able to use them in whatever way you see fit. In case you require additional IPs for any reason, you could add them to your server with a few clicks without restrictions as to their number or to the period for which you will be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in the event that you need the IPs straight away, you can add them to the package during the signup procedure, while in case it turns out that you require more IPs at some point later on, you may order them just as quickly from your billing area and we will assign them to your dedicated server several minutes later. The dedicated IPs may be renewed together with the server plan on a monthly basis and you'll be able to determine if you'll renew all of them or simply a few - in the event that you no longer need that many. You'll be able to use the IPs both for your own websites and for customer hosting accounts - if you're using the dedicated server as a hosting reseller platform.
