A dedicated IP address ensures that you shall have a distinctive numeric identifier on the Internet and that it won't be shared with other people's websites or apps as it happens with a shared web hosting account. There are many uses for a dedicated IP - for instance, when an SSL certificate is required in the event that you have an electronic store and you would like to accept online payments or in case you have a login form and you want the data that users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address may also be used for other apps, such as a VoIP server, for example. In addition, it will supply more credibility and security to your Internet sites, given that 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'll be able to get one or a number of dedicated IP addresses with just a couple of mouse clicks and to use them in case you cannot use the IP included with the web server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
If you choose to buy one of our VPS web hosting plans
, we will provide you with one dedicated IP address by default and a second one at no extra cost - if you add any one of the hosting Control Panels that we offer to your order. Some other IPs may be purchased with ease in case you need them. The option is available on the order page, so in case you need more IPs right away, we shall be able to assign them to your VPS the instant it's set up and you can use them the moment you start using the server. If you require them for any reason later on, you can order them from the billing area and they will be available in a few minutes. In this way, you can assign dedicated IP addresses not only to your own sites, but also to clients' sites in case you've started a reseller enterprise. You'll be able to order IPs as frequently as needed and renew them together with your virtual hosting server plan. If, eventually, you need less IPs, you will have the chance to renew just those that you require, while the extra ones will be removed from your web server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers
In case you acquire one of our dedicated server
packages, you'll get 3 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 whenever you want through your billing area and we will assign them to the hosting server a couple of minutes later. You may also get more IPs during the signup procedure and they'll be available on your web server the minute it is all set and we hand it over to you. The IP upgrade is available in increments of 3 and you'll be able to decide how many addresses you'll order and how long you'll use them, as you could choose the number of IPs which you'll renew on a monthly basis with your server plan. Any IP address that is assigned to your dedicated server could be used not just for your personal content, but also for any website or app that your clients may have - if you have bought the web server with the purpose to resell the disk space to third parties.
