A dedicated IP address suggests that you'll have a unique numeric identifier on the Internet and that it won't be shared with other people's sites or apps as it happens with a shared hosting account. There are many uses for a dedicated IP - for instance, when an SSL certificate is required in case you have an Internet store and you want to accept online payments or in the event that you have a login form and you'd like the data that users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address could also be used for other apps, such as a VoIP server, for instance. Moreover, it shall give more credibility and protection to your websites, considering the fact that a network flood to a shared IP won't have any effect on your dedicated IP. If you host your Internet sites with us and you have your own server, you'll be able to get one or a number of dedicated IP addresses with only a couple of mouse clicks and to use them in case you cannot use the IP included with the hosting server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in Dedicated Hosting
Each and every dedicated server that we offer comes with 3 dedicated IP addresses provided absolutely free on top of the monthly fee for the package. We also give you the opportunity to add more IPs to your server both when you sign up and at a later time through your billing Control Panel, so you can order the IPs whenever you need them with no restriction on the amount or on how frequently you get them. They could be purchased in groups of 3 and will be assigned to your hosting server instantly. You'll be able to renew them with the hosting plan and you may choose if you'll renew all of them, or a smaller number - if you no longer need the rest. Each dedicated IP address allotted to your server could be used for any purpose: for a personal site, for a software web server, or for a hosting client - if you have decided to start off your own hosting company and you are reselling accounts to other people.
