A dedicated IP address suggests that you will have a distinctive numeric identifier on the Internet and that it shall not be shared with other people's websites or apps as it happens with a shared hosting account. There are lots of uses for a dedicated IP - for instance, when an SSL certificate is required in the event that you have an electronic store and you want 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 may also be used for other applications, like a VoIP server, for instance. Additionally, it will provide more credibility and protection to your sites, since a network flood to a shared IP won't have any effect on your dedicated IP. If 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 just a couple of mouse clicks and to use them in case you cannot use the IP that comes with the server.
Extra Dedicated IPs in VPS Hosting
Our VPS hosting services provide one dedicated IP address by default. An additional one is available too - when they are ordered with a web hosting CP. If you require more IPs, however, you will be able to incorporate them easily, whatever the plan that you have chosen. You can do this during the signup process in case you need them from the beginning or through your billing account - in case you need them later. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your hosting server right after that and you can begin using them. You'll be able to renew the IPs along with the plan for so long as you want to use them. This upgrade is quite useful not simply for your personal content, but also in the event that you would like to use the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business, since you shall be able to provide a dedicated IP to any customer who would want to use one. There's no restriction on how many addresses you could order or on how frequently you could do that.

When you obtain one of our dedicated server packages, you will get three IP addresses at no additional charge and you could use them for any purpose. If you require additional IPs, you may request them anytime through your billing area and we'll assign them to the web server a few minutes later. You can also get additional IPs during the signup procedure and they will be available on your server the instant it's set and we hand it over to you.

Any IP address that is assigned to your dedicated server can be used not only for your personal content, but also for any site or app that your clients may have - if you have acquired the web server with the intent to resell the disk space to third parties.
