A dedicated IP address suggests that you shall have a distinctive numeric identifier on the Internet and that it won't be shared with other's websites 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 in the event that you have a web-based store and you want to accept online payments or in case you have a login form and you want the data that users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address can also be used for other applications, like a VoIP server, for instance. Moreover, it will offer more credibility and security to your sites, considering the fact that a network flood to a shared IP shall not have any impact on your dedicated IP. In the event that you host your sites with our company and you have your own web server, you shall be able to get one or several dedicated IP addresses with simply a couple of mouse clicks and to use them in the event that you cannot use the IP that comes with the server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
When you get one of our dedicated server solutions, you will get 3 IP addresses at no additional charge and you may use them for any purpose. If you need additional IPs, you could request them at any time from your billing area and we shall assign them to the server a few minutes later. You may even get additional IPs during the signup process and they shall be available on your hosting server as soon as it is ready and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of 3 and you'll be able to decide how many addresses you will order and how long you shall use them, as you could select the number of IPs which you'll renew every month with your hosting server plan. Any IP address which is assigned to your dedicated server can be used not only for your personal content, but for any site or application your clients may have - if you have acquired the web server with the intent to resell the disk space to third parties.
