A dedicated IP address means that you will 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 web hosting account. There are lots of uses for a dedicated IP - including, when an SSL certificate is required in case you have an Internet store and you would like to accept online payments or if you have a login form and you'd like the data which users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address may also be used for other programs, such as a VoIP server, for example. Additionally, it'll offer more credibility and protection to your Internet sites, given that a network flood to a shared IP won't 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 numerous dedicated IP addresses with simply a couple of clicks and to use them in the event that you cannot use the IP included with the hosting server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Every single VPS server plan we supply comes with 1 dedicated IP address and if you add an Internet hosting CP to it, we shall provide you with a second one at no additional cost, so you can use it as you see fit. If you need to use more IPs, you shall be able to order them with no more than two mouse clicks anytime, since you will locate this kind of an option both on our order page and within your billing CP. In the first case, the dedicated addresses shall be available the minute the virtual server is prepared, while in the second - a few moments after you order them. You'll be able to renew the IPs together with your VPS plan and use them for so long as you would like. They can prove useful not simply for your own sites, but also for the websites of any clients that you may have if you are using the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business. There isn't any restriction on how frequently you could order additional IPs or on the amount of of them you could use with your server at any given time.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
In case you get one of our dedicated server plans, you'll receive three IP addresses at no additional charge and you'll be able to use them for any purpose. If you need even more IPs, you may request them at any time via your billing area and we shall assign them to the web server a few moments later. You may also get additional IPs during the signup procedure and they'll be available on your hosting server as soon as it is set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you may pick how many addresses you'll order and how long you will use them, as you will be able to select the number of IPs that you'll renew every month with your web server plan. Any IP address that is assigned to your dedicated server may be used not just for your personal content, but also for any website or app that your clients may have - if you have acquired the hosting server with the intent to resell the disk space to third parties.
