A dedicated IP address ensures that you shall have a distinctive 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 Internet hosting account. There are many uses for a dedicated IP - for instance, when an SSL certificate is required if you have an e-store and you need to accept online payments or when you have a login form and you want the data which users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address may also be used for other apps, such as a VoIP server, for instance. Furthermore, it will offer more credibility and protection to your Internet sites, as a network flood to a shared IP won't have any impact on your dedicated IP. In case you host your Internet sites with us and you have your own web server, you shall be able to get one or several dedicated IP addresses with simply a couple of clicks and to use them in case you cannot use the IP provided with the web server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Each VPS server plan that we offer comes with one dedicated IP address and if you add a hosting CP to it, we'll give you a second one at no additional cost, so that you can use it as you see fit. If you need to use more IPs, you will be able to order them with no more than a couple of clicks whenever you want, since you'll locate this type of an option both on our order page and inside your billing CP. In the first case, the dedicated addresses shall be available the instant the virtual server is ready, while in the second - a few minutes after you order them. You can renew the IPs along with your VPS plan and use them for as long as you need. They can prove useful not just for your own sites, but also for the Internet sites of any customers which you could have in case you are using the virtual server to run a web hosting reseller business. There isn't a limitation on how often you can order additional IPs or on the amount of of them you can use with your machine at any moment.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
When you get one of our dedicated server packages, you'll receive three IP addresses at no additional charge and you'll be able to use them for any purpose. If you require additional IPs, you may request them whenever you want through your billing area and we will assign them to the server a few minutes later. You can also get additional IPs during the signup process and they will be available on your server as soon as it's set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of 3 and you may select how many addresses you'll order and how long you will use them, as you could pick the number of IPs that you will renew on a monthly basis with your web server plan. Any IP address that's assigned to your dedicated server could be used not just for your personal content, but for any Internet site or app which your clients may have - if you have purchased the machine with the aim to resell the disk space to third parties.
