A dedicated IP address means that you shall have a unique numeric identifier on the Internet and that it shall not be shared with other's Internet sites or applications as it happens with a shared hosting account. There are many uses for a dedicated IP - for instance, when an SSL certificate is needed in case you have an e-store and you need to accept online payments or in case you have a login form and you want the information that users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address can also be used for other apps, like a VoIP server, for instance. In addition, it shall provide more credibility and security to your websites, given that a network flood to a shared IP shall not have any effect on your dedicated IP. If you host your Internet sites with us and you have your own web server, you'll be able to get one or a number of 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 web server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Hosting
If you decide to order one of our Linux VPS hosting packages, we'll give you one dedicated IP address by default and a second one at no extra cost - in the event that you add any of the hosting Control Panels we offer to your order. Additional IPs may be purchased with ease in the event that you require them. The option is provided on the order page, so in case you require more IPs from the beginning, we can assign them to your VPS the moment it's set up and you can use them the second you start using the web server. If you require them for any reason later on, you can order them via the billing area and they shall be available in a few minutes. In this way, you shall be able to assign dedicated IP addresses not just to your own sites, but also to customers' websites provided you've started out a reseller enterprise. You'll be able to order IPs as frequently as required and renew them along with your virtual web server plan. If, eventually, you need less IPs, you shall have the opportunity to renew just those that you need, while the extra ones shall be taken off your server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Web Hosting
Every dedicated server that we offer includes three dedicated IP addresses supplied 100 % free on top of the monthly fee for the plan. We also offer the opportunity to add more IPs to your server both when you sign up and at a later time via your billing Control Panel, so you may order the IPs whenever you need them with no limitation on the number or on how often you get them. They may be purchased in groups of three and will be assigned to your hosting server immediately. You may renew them with the hosting plan and you may choose if you will renew all of them, or a smaller number - in case you no longer need the rest. Each and every dedicated IP address allotted to your hosting server could be used for any purpose: for a personal site, for a software server, or for a hosting customer - if you've decided to start out your own hosting business and you're reselling accounts to other people.
