A dedicated IP address ensures that you shall have a distinctive numeric identifier on the Internet and that it shall not be shared with other's Internet sites or apps as it happens with a shared web hosting account. There are lots of uses for a dedicated IP - for instance, when an SSL certificate is required in the event that you have an e-store and you need to accept online payments or if you have a login form and you would like the info which users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address may also be used for other programs, like a VoIP server, for instance. Furthermore, it shall give more credibility and protection to your Internet sites, considering the fact that a network flood to a shared IP won't have any effect on your dedicated IP. If you host your websites 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 just in case you cannot use the IP that comes with the hosting server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
If you buy one of our VPS servers
, we'll provide you with one dedicated IP address by default and a second one totally free - if you add any one of the hosting Control Panels that we offer to your order. Additional IPs can be purchased with ease in the event that you require them. The option is available on the order page, so in case you need more IPs from the beginning, we can assign them to your VPS the moment it is set up and you can use them the moment you start using the web server. If you require them for any reason later, you can order them through the billing area and they'll be available in a couple of minutes. This way, you shall be able to assign dedicated IP addresses not just to your own Internet sites, but also to clients' sites provided you have launched a reseller business. You could order IPs as frequently as needed and renew them along with your virtual server plan. If, at some point, you need less IPs, you will have the chance to renew just those which you require, while the extra ones will be taken off your hosting server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
If you acquire one of our dedicated server
solutions, you will get 3 IP addresses at no additional charge and you could use them for any purpose. If you need more IPs, you could request them at any time through your billing area and we shall assign them to the hosting server a couple of minutes later. You may even get more IPs during the signup procedure and they will be available on your server the minute it's all set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you could select how many addresses you will order and how long you shall use them, since you can pick the number of IPs that you'll renew each month with your server plan. Any IP address that is assigned to your dedicated server can be used not only for your personal content, but for any site or application your customers may have - if you have bought the hosting server with the purpose to resell the disk space to third parties.
