A dedicated IP address means that you'll have a unique numeric identifier on the Internet and that it won't be shared with other's Internet sites or apps as it happens with a shared web hosting account. There are many uses for a dedicated IP - for example, when an SSL certificate is needed in case you have an electronic store and you need to accept online payments or in case you have a login form and you want the info which users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address could also be used for other apps, such as a VoIP server, for instance. Additionally, it shall offer more credibility and protection to your sites, as a network flood to a shared IP won't have any effect on your dedicated IP. In case you host your Internet sites with our company and you have your own web server, you'll be able to get one or a number of dedicated IP addresses with simply a couple of mouse clicks and to use them in the event that you cannot use the IP that comes with the hosting server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Our Linux VPS servers provide one dedicated IP address by default. An additional one is available also - in case they are ordered with an Internet hosting Control Panel. If you need more IPs, however, you will be able to include them with ease, whatever the plan which you've selected. You may do this during the signup process if you need them from the beginning or via your billing account - in the event that you need them later. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your hosting server shortly after that and you can begin using them. You can renew the IPs together with the plan for so long as you plan to use them. This upgrade is quite useful not just for your personal content, but also when you would like to use the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business, because you shall be able to supply a dedicated IP to any client who would like to use one. There is no restriction on how many addresses you can order or on how frequently you could do that.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
All Linux dedicated servers we offer include three IP addresses by default and you'll be able to use them in any way you see fit. In case you require more IPs for any reason, you could add them to your server with a couple of clicks without any restrictions as to their number or to the duration for which you'll be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in the event that you require the IPs right from the start, you may add them to the package during the signup procedure, while in case it turns out that you require more IPs at some point afterwards, you could order them just as simply from your billing area and we will assign them to your dedicated server a few moments later. The dedicated IPs can be renewed together with the hosting server plan on a monthly basis and you can decide if you'll renew all of them or just a few - if you no longer require that many. You could use the IPs both for your own websites and for customer hosting accounts - if you're using the dedicated server as a hosting reseller platform.
