A dedicated IP address means that you shall have a unique numeric identifier on the Internet and that it shall not be shared with other's sites or apps as it happens with a shared hosting account. There are lots of uses for a dedicated IP - for example, when an SSL certificate is required if you have a web-based store and you want to accept online payments or when you have a login form and you'd like the data which users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address could also be used for other applications, like a VoIP server, for example. Moreover, it shall provide more credibility and protection to your websites, given that a network flood to a shared IP won't have any effect on your dedicated IP. In case you host your websites with us and you have your own server, you will be able to get one or numerous dedicated IP addresses with simply a couple of clicks and to use them just in case you cannot use the IP that comes with the web server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
If you decide to buy one of our Linux VPS servers
, we'll supply you with one dedicated IP address by default and a second one free of charge - in case you add any one of the hosting Control Panels which we offer to your order. Additional IPs could be purchased effortlessly in case you need them. The option is available on the order page, so if you require more IPs from the start, we shall be able to assign them to your VPS the moment it is set up and you can use them as soon as you start using the server. If you require them for any reason afterwards, you can order them via the billing area and they shall be available in a couple of minutes. Thus, you can assign dedicated IP addresses not only to your own sites, but also to customers' sites in case you have launched a reseller business. You can order IPs as frequently as needed and renew them along with your virtual web server plan. If, eventually, you require less IPs, you'll have the chance to renew just those which you need, while the extra ones will be taken off your web server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
When you get one of our dedicated server
plans, you'll receive 3 IP addresses at no additional charge and you can use them for any purpose. If you need even more IPs, you may request them whenever you want via your billing area and we shall assign them to the server a few minutes later. You can even get additional IPs during the signup procedure and they will be available on your server the moment it is set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you may decide how many addresses you will order and how long you shall use them, since you can select the number of IPs which you'll renew every month with your hosting server plan. Any IP address that's assigned to your dedicated server may be used not only for your personal content, but for any Internet site or application that your clients may have - if you have bought the hosting server with the intention to resell the disk space to third parties.
