A dedicated IP address means that you will have a distinctive numeric identifier on the Internet and that it will not be shared with other's websites or applications as it happens with a shared Internet hosting account. There are various uses for a dedicated IP - for instance, when an SSL certificate is needed 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 could also be used for other applications, such as a VoIP server, for example. Furthermore, it'll give more credibility and protection to your websites, as 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 server, you will be able to get one or several dedicated IP addresses with simply a couple of clicks and to use them in the event that you cannot use the IP included with the web server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers feature one dedicated IP address by default. A second one is available as well - if they are ordered with a hosting Control Panel. In case you require more IPs, however, you will be able to include them easily, no matter the package which you've chosen. You could do this during the signup process in the event that you need them from the start or through your billing account - in case you need them later. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your web server right after that and you can begin using them. You could renew the IPs together with the plan for so long as you want to use them. This upgrade is quite useful not only for your personal content, but also in the event that you want to use the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business, since you shall be able to provide a dedicated IP to any client who wants to use one. There isn't any restriction on how many addresses you can order or on how often you could do that.
