A dedicated IP address ensures that you'll have a unique numeric identifier on the Internet and that it will not be shared with other's 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 needed in the event that you have a web-based store and you need to accept online payments or when you have a login form and you'd like the info which users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address can also be used for other apps, such as a VoIP server, for instance. In addition, it'll give more credibility and protection to your Internet sites, as a network flood to a shared IP shall not have any impact on your dedicated IP. In the event that you host your websites with us 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 that comes with the web server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Web Hosting
If you decide to purchase one of our Linux VPS web hosting, we will give you one dedicated IP address by default and a second one totally free - in case you add any one of the hosting Control Panels we offer to your order. Some other IPs could be purchased easily in the event that you require them. The option is available on the order page, so if you need more IPs from the beginning, we can assign them to your VPS the instant it is put in place and you can use them as soon as you start using the web server. If you require them for any reason later, you can order them via the billing area and they'll be available in a few minutes. This way, you'll be able to assign dedicated IP addresses not only to your own sites, but also to customers' websites if you've started a reseller business. You can order IPs as frequently as required and renew them along with your virtual hosting server plan. If, at some point, you need less IPs, you will have the opportunity to renew just those that you need, while the extra ones will be taken off your hosting server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All Linux dedicated servers hosting which we offer come with 3 IP addresses by default and you could use them in whatever way you see fit. If you require more IPs for any reason, you'll be able to add them to your web server with just a few mouse clicks without any limitations as to their number or to the duration for which you'll be able to use them. This upgrade comes in increments of three and in case you require the IPs straight away, you could add them to the plan during the signup process, while in case it turns out that you need more IPs at some point later on, you'll be able to order them just as simply through your billing area and we'll assign them to your dedicated server a couple of minutes later. The dedicated IPs could be renewed with the web server plan on a monthly basis and you'll be able to choose if you'll renew all of them or just a few - in case you no longer need that many. You'll be able to use the IPs both for your own websites and for customer hosting accounts - if you're using the dedicated server as a web hosting reseller platform.
