A dedicated IP address means that you will have a unique numeric identifier on the Internet and that it shall not be shared with other's sites or apps as it happens with a shared hosting account. There are lots of uses for a dedicated IP - for example, when an SSL certificate is required in case you have an electronic store and you would like to accept online payments or in the event that you have a login form and you would like the data that users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address could also be used for other applications, such as a VoIP server, for instance. Additionally, it'll provide more credibility and protection to your websites, since a network flood to a shared IP won't have any effect on your dedicated IP. In case you host your Internet sites with our company and you have your own hosting server, you will be able to get one or numerous dedicated IP addresses with only a couple of clicks and to use them in the event that you cannot use the IP provided with the web server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting
When you obtain one of our dedicated server plans, you'll receive 3 IP addresses at no additional charge and you could use them for any purpose. If you require even more IPs, you may request them at any time through your billing area and we will assign them to the hosting server a few moments later. You may also get more IPs during the signup process and they'll be available on your machine the instant 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, as you could select the number of IPs that you'll renew on a monthly basis with your web server plan. Any IP address that is assigned to your dedicated server can be used not only for your personal content, but for any Internet site or app which your customers may have - if you have obtained the web server with the aim to resell the disk space to third parties.
