A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the web that is given to a device or a website. Shared website hosting servers usually have plenty of websites under a single IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs which aren't shared with anybody else. Even if you use a regular shared account, however, you can purchase a dedicated IP address that will be used just by your sites - one or a few. As this can add up to the speed of thesite, it is more likely that the site will get improved search engine result positions. Certainly, this isn't the only factor, but it is likely to help you get more visitors and potential customers. The dedicated IP is also needed if you wish to encode the info exchanged between a website and its visitors through an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting

As you're able to run almost anything on a dedicated server, all our packages feature three dedicated IP addresses included as standard. In case you want to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you'll be able to use the IPs which we provide you with absolutely free. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any website name that you've registered through us or any place else then use them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. If you run a web hosting company, for example, this option will contribute to your credibility as an independent service provider. In case you need more IPs than the three the packages provide you with, you're able to purchase additional ones in increments of 3 either during the signup process or through your billing Control Panel at any time.
