A dedicated IP address ensures that you'll have a distinctive numeric identifier on the Internet and that it will not be shared with other people's sites or applications as it happens with a shared web hosting account. There are lots of uses for a dedicated IP - for example, when an SSL certificate is needed in case you have an online store and you want to accept online payments or in the event that you have a login form and you want the data which users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address can also be used for other apps, like a VoIP server, for example. Furthermore, it shall offer more credibility and protection to your sites, considering the fact that a network flood to a shared IP shall not have any impact on your dedicated IP. If you host your sites with our company and you have your own server, you will be able to get one or numerous 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 server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
If you acquire 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 additional IPs, you'll be able to request them at any time via your billing area and we'll assign them to the web server a couple of minutes later. You may also get more IPs during the signup procedure and they will be available on your machine the minute it is ready and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of three and you can decide how many addresses you will order and how long you shall use them, since you can 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 only for your personal content, but for any Internet site or app that your clients may have - if you have purchased the machine with the intention to resell the disk space to third parties.
