A dedicated IP address means that you'll have a distinctive numeric identifier on the Internet and that it will not be shared with other's sites or applications as it happens with a shared web hosting account. There are lots of uses for a dedicated IP - for example, when an SSL certificate is required if you have an e-store and you would like to accept online payments or when you have a login form and you would like the information which users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address can also be used for other programs, like a VoIP server, for instance. Moreover, it'll 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 sites with our company and you have your own hosting server, you'll be able to get one or numerous dedicated IP addresses with just a couple of mouse clicks and to use them in case you cannot use the IP that comes with the web server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Our VPS web hosting plans feature one dedicated IP address by default. An additional one is available also - if they are ordered with a hosting CP. In the event that you need more IPs, however, you will be able to include them easily, regardless of the plan that you've selected. You can do this during the signup process if you need them from the beginning or using your billing account - in case you need them afterwards. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your server shortly after that and you may start using them. You may renew the IPs together with the plan for so long as you plan to use them. This upgrade is quite useful not only for your personal content, but also in case you intend to use the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business, considering the fact that you'll be able to offer a dedicated IP to every customer who would like to use one. There isn't any restriction on the number of addresses you may order or on how frequently you could do that.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
In case you acquire one of our dedicated server solutions, you'll receive three IP addresses at no additional charge and you could use them for any purpose. If you require more IPs, you may request them anytime through your billing area and we will assign them to the server a couple of minutes later. You can even get additional IPs during the signup process and they'll be available on your machine the instant it is ready and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you may select how many addresses you'll order and how long you shall use them, since you will be able to choose the number of IPs that you will renew each month with your hosting server plan. Any IP address which is assigned to your dedicated server could be used not just for your personal content, but also for any site or application which your clients may have - if you have obtained the hosting server with the intention to resell the disk space to third parties.
