An IP address is a unique number which separates a site or a hosting server on the world-wide web, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it will be employed solely by your websites and won't be shared with other people as it happens with shared website hosting accounts. If you have your own hosting server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for a variety of uses. If you have an electronic store, for instance, you shall need an SSL certificate for it, in order to ensure that the payment info which your customers submit shall be encrypted and secure. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some sort and you wish the usernames and the passwords that visitors type in to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which ought to be different from the one that you already have on the web server. You might also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better performance for a certain Internet site, which will affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting
Each dedicated server that we offer includes 3 dedicated IP addresses provided totally free on top of the monthly fee for the plan. We also supply you with the opportunity to add more IPs to your server both when you sign up and at a later time through your billing CP, so you can order the IPs whenever you require them without a restriction on the amount or on how frequently you get them. They can be purchased in groups of three and shall be assigned to your hosting server instantly. You'll be able to renew them with the hosting plan and you can decide if you'll renew all of them, or a smaller amount - if you no longer require the rest. Each dedicated IP address allocated to your hosting server could be used for any purpose: for a personal site, for a software hosting server, or for a hosting client - if you have decided to start out your own web hosting firm and you are reselling accounts to other people.
