An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes a website or a hosting server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed only by your websites and will not be shared with others as it happens with shared hosting accounts. If you have your own server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for various uses. Provided you have a web-based store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, so as to make certain that the payment information your clients submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some sort and you want the usernames and the passwords which visitors input to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which needs to be different from the one that you already have on the machine. You might also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better overall performance for a certain Internet site, which may affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting
Every dedicated server which we offer comes with 3 dedicated IP addresses provided free of charge on top of the monthly fee for the package deal. We also offer the opportunity to add more IPs to your server both when you sign up and at a later time through your billing Control Panel, so you may order the IPs whenever you require them with no limitation on the number or on how frequently you get them. They could be purchased in groups of three and shall be assigned to your web server right away. You can renew them with the hosting plan and you may decide if you will renew all of them, or a smaller amount - in the event that you no longer need the rest. Each dedicated IP address assigned to your hosting server could be used for any purpose: for a personal site, for a software web server, or for a hosting customer - in case you have decided to start out your own Internet hosting company and you are reselling accounts to other people.
