5 IP addresses are provided with each dedicated server. Additional IP addresses can be purchased upon request. Large amounts of IP addresses may need justification.

What is a reboot?
When we talk about reboot. We are referring to instances when we have to physically reboot your server. You are free to reboot your server remotely by yourself at any time, which is one of the many benefits to having your own dedicated server.
What is a System Restore?
A system restore is when we have to restore your server to the same state that it was in when you first ordered your server. This usually only happens when a system OS has irreparable damages.
