A dedicated IP address means that you shall have a distinctive numeric identifier on the Internet and that it will not be shared with other people's Internet sites or apps as it happens with a shared hosting account. There are various uses for a dedicated IP - including, when an SSL certificate is required in case you have an online store and you would like to accept online payments or in the event that you have a login form and you would like the information which users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address may also be used for other apps, such as a VoIP server, for example. Additionally, it will give more credibility and protection to your Internet sites, since a network flood to a shared IP shall not have any impact on your dedicated IP. In the event that you host your sites with our company and you have your own hosting server, you shall be able to get one or a number of dedicated IP addresses with simply a couple of clicks and to use them just in case you cannot use the IP included with the hosting server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
If you obtain one of our dedicated server solutions, you'll get three IP addresses at no additional charge and you may use them for any purpose. If you require more IPs, you may request them anytime from your billing area and we shall assign them to the hosting server a couple of minutes later. You can even get additional IPs during the signup process and they shall be available on your hosting server the moment it's set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you'll be able to decide how many addresses you will order and how long you shall use them, as you will be able to choose the number of IPs which you will renew every month with your server plan. Any IP address that is assigned to your dedicated server could be used not just for your personal content, but for any Internet site or app which your customers may have - if you have bought the hosting server with the aim to resell the disk space to third parties.
