An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes a website or a hosting server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used just by your websites and won't be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. If you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for many different uses. Provided you have an electronic store, for example, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, to make certain that the payment information that your clients submit shall be encrypted and safe. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which needs to be different from the one that you already have on the hosting server. You could also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better overall performance for a particular Internet site, which may affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting
Every single dedicated server we offer includes three dedicated IP addresses supplied at no extra cost on top of the monthly fee for the package. We also provide you with the chance to add more IPs to your hosting server both when you sign up and at a later time via your billing CP, so you may order the IPs whenever you require them with no restriction on the amount or on how frequently you get them. They can be purchased in groups of 3 and will be assigned to your web server right away. You may renew them with the Internet hosting plan and you could choose if you will renew all of them, or a smaller number - in case you no longer need the rest. Each and every dedicated IP address allotted to your hosting server may be used for any purpose: for a personal site, for a software server, or for a hosting client - in the event that you have decided to start off your own Internet hosting firm and you are reselling accounts to other people.
