A dedicated IP address means that you shall have a distinctive numeric identifier on the Internet and that it shall not be shared with other people's Internet sites or applications as it happens with a shared Internet hosting account. There are many uses for a dedicated IP - for instance, when an SSL certificate is required in the event that you have an Internet store and you need to accept online payments or when you have a login form and you'd like the data which users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address could also be used for other applications, like a VoIP server, for example. In addition, it will provide more credibility and protection to your sites, since a network flood to a shared IP will not have any effect on your dedicated IP. If you host your websites with us and you have your own web server, you shall be able to get one or several dedicated IP addresses with just a couple of clicks and to use them in the event that you cannot use the IP that comes with the server.

If, eventually, you require less IPs, you will have the opportunity to renew only those which you need, while the extra ones shall be taken off your hosting server.
