An IP address is a unique number that distinguishes a site or a web server on the Internet, so in the event that you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed just by your Internet sites and will not be shared with other individuals as it happens with shared hosting accounts. If you have your own hosting server, you will have a dedicated IP, but you may require additional ones for a variety of purposes. Provided you have an Internet store, for example, you will need an SSL certificate for it, to make certain that the payment information which your clients submit will 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 which visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which ought to be different from the one that you already have on the server. You might also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better efficiency for a particular website, which shall influence its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting
Each dedicated server that we offer features three dedicated IP addresses supplied totally free on top of the monthly fee for the plan. We also supply you with the opportunity 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'll be able to order the IPs whenever you require them without a limitation on the number or on how frequently you get them. They could be purchased in groups of 3 and shall be assigned to your web server immediately. You could renew them with the web hosting plan and you may decide if you'll renew all of them, or a smaller number - in the event that you no longer need the rest. Each and every dedicated IP address allocated to your hosting server can be used for any purpose: for a personal site, for a software web server, or for a hosting customer - if you have decided to start off your own hosting company and you are reselling accounts to other people.
