A dedicated IP address suggests that you shall have a unique numeric identifier on the Internet and that it will not be shared with other's sites or apps as it happens with a shared hosting account. There are lots of uses for a dedicated IP - including, when an SSL certificate is needed in case you have an online store and you would like to accept online payments or if you have a login form and you want the info which users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address could also be used for other programs, like a VoIP server, for instance. Furthermore, it'll supply more credibility and security to your Internet sites, 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 will be able to get one or several dedicated IP addresses with only 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 VPS Servers
If you choose to buy one of our VPS servers
, we'll provide you with one dedicated IP address by default and a second one absolutely free - in case you add any of the hosting Control Panels which we offer to your order. More IPs may be purchased effortlessly if you require them. The option is provided on the order page, so in case you require more IPs from the beginning, we shall be able to assign them to your VPS the instant it's put in place and you can use them as soon as you start using the web server. If you need them for any reason afterwards, you can order them through the billing area and they will be available within a matter of minutes. Thus, you can assign dedicated IP addresses not only to your own websites, but also to clients' websites in case you have started out a reseller business. You can order IPs as frequently as needed and renew them together with your virtual hosting server plan. If, sooner or later, you require less IPs, you'll have the opportunity to renew only those that you require, while the extra ones will be taken off your hosting server.

When you acquire one of our dedicated server
plans, you will get 3 IP addresses at no additional charge and you can use them for any purpose.
