An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes a site or a web server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed only by your websites and shall not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. If you have your own hosting server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may require extra ones for a variety of uses. If you have an online store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, so as to ensure that the payment info that your clients submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid if you have a login form of some type and you wish the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in 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 hosting server. You may also need an individual IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better efficiency for a given website, which shall influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting
Each dedicated server we offer includes three dedicated IP addresses provided 100 % free on top of the monthly fee for the package. We also offer the chance to add more IPs to your web server both when you sign up and at a later time using your billing CP, so you'll be able to order the IPs whenever you need them with no limit on the number or on how frequently you get them. They could be purchased in groups of three and shall be assigned to your hosting server right away. You can renew them with the web hosting plan and you'll be able to decide if you will renew all of them, or a smaller number - in case you no longer need the rest. Every dedicated IP address allotted to your server could be used for any purpose: for a personal site, for a software hosting server, or for a hosting client - in the event that you have decided to launch your own hosting enterprise and you're reselling accounts to other people.
