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 Internet sites or applications as it happens with a shared Internet hosting account. There are various uses for a dedicated IP - for example, when an SSL certificate is required if you have an online store and you want to accept online payments or in case you have a login form and you'd like the information that users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address can also be used for other apps, like a VoIP server, for instance. Furthermore, it will give more credibility and security to your websites, since a network flood to a shared IP shall not have any impact on your dedicated IP. In case you host your websites with us and you have your own web server, you'll be able to get one or several dedicated IP addresses with only a couple of clicks and to use them just in case you cannot use the IP provided with the web server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
If you choose one of the VPS servers solutions which we offer, you'll get one dedicated IP address, and with every web server that's ordered with a Control Panel, we supply a second one free of charge. If you'd like to use additional IPs, you could add them to your plan with a few clicks anytime. If you need them immediately, for example, you are able to add them to your order and they will be assigned to your VPS the minute it's set up. In case you need them later, you'll be able to add them via your billing Control Panel and they will be available within a few minutes. You'll be able to assign them to personal Internet sites with a couple of clicks or to any of your clients - if you are using the virtual server to start your own web hosting company. You may take advantage of this upgrade as often as you wish and you could renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for as long as needed.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated servers that we offer come with 3 IP addresses by default and you'll be able to use them in any way you see fit. If you require even more IPs for any reason, you could add them to your web server with a few mouse clicks with no restrictions as to their number or to the period for which you will be able to employ them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and if you need the IPs straight away, you can add them to the plan during the signup process, while if it turns out that you need more IPs at some point afterwards, you can order them just as easily from your billing area and we will assign them to your dedicated server a few minutes later. The dedicated IPs could be renewed with the web server plan on a monthly basis and you'll be able to choose if you will renew all of them or only a few - in case you no longer require that many. You can use the IPs both for your own Internet sites and for customer hosting accounts - provided you are using the dedicated server as a hosting reseller platform.
