A dedicated IP address means that you'll 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 Internet hosting account. There are lots of uses for a dedicated IP - including, when an SSL certificate is required in case you have an e-store and you would like to accept online payments or when you have a login form and you would like the info that users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address can also be used for other applications, like a VoIP server, for example. Furthermore, it'll offer more credibility and security to your Internet sites, considering the fact that a network flood to a shared IP shall not have any impact on your dedicated IP. If you host your Internet sites with us and you have your own web server, you will be able to get one or a number of dedicated IP addresses with simply a couple of mouse clicks and to use them in the event that you cannot use the IP provided with the hosting server.

Our Linux VPS web hosting packages provide one dedicated IP address by default. An additional one is available as well - when they are ordered with a hosting Control Panel. If you need more IPs, however, you'll be able to incorporate them effortlessly, regardless of the plan which you've selected. You can do this during the signup procedure in case you need them from the beginning or using your billing account - in case you need them later on. The dedicated IPs shall be assigned to your server right after that and you can start using them. You could renew the IPs together with the plan for as long as you plan to use them. This upgrade is extremely useful not simply for your personal content, but also if you would like to use the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business, because you shall be able to offer a dedicated IP to any customer who would want to use one. There isn't a restriction on how many addresses you can order or on how frequently you may do that.
