A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the net which is given to a device or a site. Shared hosting servers usually have a large number of websites under the same IP, while dedicated ones have their own IPs which aren't shared with anybody else. Even when you use a standard shared account, however, it is possible to get 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 asite, it is more likely that the site will get greater search engine result rankings. Of course, this is not the sole factor, but it is likely to help you have more site visitors and prospective clients. The dedicated IP is also required when you would like to secure the info exchanged between the website and its visitors by using an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting
Because it's possible to run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all our packages feature three dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you need to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you are able to use the IPs which we provide you with for free. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you have registered through our company or elsewhere and use them to point other domains to the dedicated server. If you own a hosting company, for instance, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone service provider. If you need more IPs than the three the packages include, you can get extra ones in increments of three either during the signup process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
