A dedicated IP address means that you'll have a unique numeric identifier on the Internet and that it will not be shared with other people's websites or apps as it happens with a shared hosting account. There are various uses for a dedicated IP - for instance, when an SSL certificate is needed if you have an e-store and you need 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 apps, such as a VoIP server, for instance. Additionally, it will provide more credibility and security to your Internet sites, given that a network flood to a shared IP will not have any effect on your dedicated IP. If you host your websites with us and you have your own hosting server, you'll be able to get one or several dedicated IP addresses with just a couple of clicks and to use them just in case you cannot use the IP included with the hosting server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
If you select one of the VPS servers plans that we provide, you will get 1 dedicated IP address, and with every hosting server that's ordered with a Control Panel, we give a second one at no extra cost. If you'd like to use additional IPs, you'll be able to add them to your package deal with just a couple of clicks whenever you want. If you require them right away, for instance, you'll be able to add them to your order and they shall be assigned to your VPS the instant it's set up. In case you need them later, you can add them via your billing CP and they will be available within a few minutes. You can 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 out your own hosting business. You could benefit from this upgrade as often as you want and you can renew the additional IP addresses with your plan for as long as needed.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
In case you acquire one of our dedicated server packages, you will get three IP addresses at no additional charge and you may use them for any purpose. If you need additional IPs, you can request them at any time from your billing area and we'll assign them to the server a few moments later. You can also get additional IPs during the signup process and they will be available on your web server as soon as it's ready and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you can choose how many addresses you will order and how long you will use them, as you can select the number of IPs which you'll renew each month with your server plan. Any IP address which is assigned to your dedicated server can be used not only for your personal content, but also for any website or app that your clients may have - if you have bought the web server with the aim to resell the disk space to third parties.
