A dedicated IP address means that you shall have a distinctive numeric identifier on the Internet and that it will not 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 - including, when an SSL certificate is required in case you have an Internet store and you would like to accept online payments or in case you have a login form and you'd like the data that users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address could also be used for other applications, like a VoIP server, for instance. Furthermore, it shall give more credibility and protection to your sites, given that a network flood to a shared IP shall not have any effect on your dedicated IP. In case you host your sites with us and you have your own server, you'll be able to get one or numerous dedicated IP addresses with just a couple of clicks and to use them in case you cannot use the IP that comes with the web server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
If you get one of our dedicated server
solutions, you'll get 3 IP addresses at no additional charge and you'll be able to use them for any purpose. If you require more IPs, you could request them anytime via your billing area and we will assign them to the server a few moments later. You can even get more IPs during the signup process and they shall be available on your machine the instant it's all set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you may choose how many addresses you will order and how long you shall use them, as you could pick the number of IPs which you'll renew every month with your hosting server plan. Any IP address that's assigned to your dedicated server could be used not only for your personal content, but for any website or application which your customers may have - if you have acquired the web server with the purpose to resell the disk space to third parties.
