A dedicated IP address ensures that you'll 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 needed if you have an Internet store and you want to accept online payments or when you have a login form and you would like the info that users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address could also be used for other applications, such as a VoIP server, for example. Moreover, it will give more credibility and protection to your sites, considering the fact that a network flood to a shared IP won't have any impact on your dedicated IP. In case you host your Internet sites with our company and you have your own server, you'll be able to get one or several dedicated IP addresses with just a couple of mouse clicks and to use them just in case you cannot use the IP that comes with the hosting server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
When you get one of our dedicated server plans, you'll get three IP addresses at no additional charge and you can use them for any purpose. If you require additional IPs, you could request them anytime from your billing area and we'll assign them to the server a few moments later. You can even get additional IPs during the signup process and they will be available on your hosting server the moment it is set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of 3 and you can choose how many addresses you will order and how long you shall use them, since you could select the number of IPs that you will renew every month with your server plan. Any IP address that is assigned to your dedicated server could be used not just for your personal content, but for any website or application which your clients may have - if you have bought the machine with the intent to resell the disk space to third parties.
