A dedicated IP address ensures that you will have a distinctive numeric identifier on the Internet and that it will not be shared with other people's sites or applications as it happens with a shared hosting account. There are various uses for a dedicated IP - for instance, when an SSL certificate is needed if you have an online store and you need to accept online payments or in case you have a login form and you'd like the information that users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address may also be used for other apps, such as a VoIP server, for example. Moreover, it'll give more credibility and security to your websites, since a network flood to a shared IP shall not have any impact on your dedicated IP. In the event that you host your Internet sites with our company and you have your own server, you will be able to get one or several dedicated IP addresses with just a couple of 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
In case you obtain one of our dedicated server packages, 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 may request them anytime through your billing area and we'll assign them to the web server a couple of minutes later. You can also get additional IPs during the signup process and they'll be available on your machine the moment it's all set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of 3 and you may pick how many addresses you will order and how long you'll use them, since you will be able to choose the number of IPs which you'll renew each month with your hosting server plan. Any IP address that is assigned to your dedicated server may be used not only for your personal content, but for any site or app your clients may have - if you have acquired the web server with the goal to resell the disk space to third parties.
