An IP address is a unique number which distinguishes an Internet site or a web server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it'll be employed solely by your sites and will not be shared with others as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. In case you have your own web server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for a variety of uses. Provided you have an electronic store, for instance, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, to make certain that the payment information that your customers submit will be encrypted and protected. The same is valid in the event that you have a login form of some type and you would like the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which needs to be different from the one which you already have on the machine. You might also need an independent IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you need a slightly better efficiency for a certain site, which shall affect its position in search engine results.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS
Our Linux VPS services feature one dedicated IP address by default. Another one is available too - when they are ordered with an Internet hosting CP. If you require more IPs, however, you'll be able to add them effortlessly, no matter the plan which you've picked. You may do this during the signup procedure in case you need them from the start or via your billing account - in the event that you need them later. The dedicated IPs will be assigned to your hosting server shortly after that and you could start using them. You can renew the IPs together with the plan for so long as you intend to use them. This upgrade is incredibly useful not only for your personal content, but also in the event that you intend to use the virtual server to run an Internet hosting reseller business, because you will be able to provide a dedicated IP to any client who would want to use one. There isn't any restriction on the number of addresses you'll be able to order or on how many times you can do that.

You'll be able to renew them with the Internet hosting plan and you could choose if you'll renew all of them, or a smaller number - in the event that you no longer need the rest. Every dedicated IP address assigned to your web server can be used for any purpose: for a personal Internet site, for a software hosting server, or for a hosting client - in the event that you've decided to start out your own web hosting firm and you're reselling accounts to other people.
