A dedicated IP address means that you shall have a unique numeric identifier on the Internet and that it won't be shared with other people's sites or apps as it happens with a shared hosting account. There are lots of uses for a dedicated IP - including, when an SSL certificate is required if you have an online store and you need to accept online payments or in case you have a login form and you would like the data which users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address may also be used for other applications, like a VoIP server, for instance. Furthermore, it shall provide more credibility and protection to your Internet sites, as a network flood to a shared IP won't have any impact on your dedicated IP. In the event that you host your sites with us and you have your own hosting server, you'll be able to get one or numerous dedicated IP addresses with simply a couple of clicks and to use them in case you cannot use the IP that comes with the hosting server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated web hosting plans that we offer feature three IP addresses by default and you can use them in whatever way you see fit. If you require even more IPs for any reason, you can add them to your web server with a few mouse clicks with no restrictions as to their number or the length of time for which you shall be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in case you require the IPs straight away, you can add them to the package during the signup procedure, while in the event that it turns out that you require more IPs at some point later on, you'll be able to order them just as effortlessly using your billing area and we will assign them to your dedicated server a few moments later. The dedicated IPs may be renewed with the web server plan on a monthly basis and you could decide if you will renew all of them or simply a few - if you no longer require that many. You may use the IPs both for your own websites and for client hosting accounts - provided you're using the dedicated server as an Internet hosting reseller platform.
