A dedicated IP address means that you will have a distinctive numeric identifier on the Internet and that it will not be shared with other's Internet sites or applications as it happens with a shared web hosting account. There are lots of uses for a dedicated IP - including, when an SSL certificate is required in the event that you have an online store and you want 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 applications, such as a VoIP server, for instance. Furthermore, it shall give more credibility and protection to your sites, since a network flood to a shared IP will not have any effect on your dedicated IP. In case you host your sites with us and you have your own web server, you'll be able to get one or a number of dedicated IP addresses with just a couple of mouse clicks and to use them in case you cannot use the IP included with the hosting server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Every single VPS server plan which we supply comes with one dedicated IP address and if you add an Internet hosting CP to it, we will provide you with a second one at no additional cost, so you can use it the way you see fit. If you want to use more IPs, you shall be able to order them with just 2 clicks whenever you want, as you will discover this type of an option both on our order page and inside your billing CP. In the first case, the dedicated addresses shall be available as soon as the virtual server is ready, while in the second - a few moments after you order them. You can renew the IPs along with your VPS plan and use them for as long as you want. They can come in handy not simply for your own websites, but also for the Internet sites of any customers that you may have in the event that you are using the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business. There isn't a limit on how many times you can order additional IPs or on how many of them you could use with your web server at any time.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
If you get one of our dedicated server packages, you'll receive 3 IP addresses at no additional charge and you'll be able to use them for any purpose. If you require additional IPs, you may request them at any time through your billing area and we shall assign them to the server a few moments later. You can even get more IPs during the signup procedure and they will be available on your web server the moment it is ready and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you could decide how many addresses you'll order and how long you will use them, as you can select the number of IPs that you'll renew every month with your web server plan. Any IP address that's assigned to your dedicated server could be used not only for your personal content, but also for any Internet site or application your clients may have - if you have obtained the web server with the intent to resell the disk space to third parties.
