An IP address is a unique number that separates an Internet site or a web server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be employed just by your Internet sites and won't be shared with other people as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. In case you have your own hosting server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for various purposes. Provided you have an online store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, to ensure that the payment information which your clients submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some kind and you wish the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which needs to be different from the one which you already have on the web server. You could also need an independent IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better functionality for a particular site, which shall influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server that we offer includes three dedicated IP addresses supplied 100 % free on top of the monthly fee for the plan. 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 using your billing Control Panel, so you may order the IPs whenever you need them with no limit on the number or on how frequently you get them. They may be purchased in groups of 3 and will be assigned to your server immediately. You may renew them with the Internet hosting plan and you may decide if you will renew all of them, or a smaller number - in case you no longer require the rest. Any dedicated IP address assigned to your server may be used for any purpose: for a personal Internet site, for a software server, or for a hosting customer - if you've decided to start off your own Internet hosting company and you're reselling accounts to other people.
