An IP address is a unique number which identifies a website or a server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it shall be used exclusively by your websites and will not be shared with others as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. In case you have your own server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for many different uses. If you have an online store, for example, you will need an SSL certificate for it, to make sure that the payment information that your clients submit will be encrypted and secure. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you wish the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which ought to be different from the one which you already have on the server. You might also need a separate IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better efficiency for a particular website, which shall influence its position in search engine results.

Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages which we offer feature 3 IP addresses by default and you could use them in any way you see fit. If you need additional IPs for any reason, you'll be able to add them to your server with several clicks without any limits as to their number or to the duration for which you shall be able to employ them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in the event that you require the IPs right away, you may add them to the package deal during the signup procedure, while in case it turns out that you require more IPs at some point later, you'll be able to order them just as quickly from your billing area and we'll assign them to your dedicated server a few moments later. The dedicated IPs may be renewed along with the web server plan on a monthly basis and you'll be able to determine if you shall renew all of them or only a few - if you no longer need that many. You can use the IPs both for your own sites and for customer hosting accounts - if you are using the dedicated server as a hosting reseller platform.
