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

In case you plan 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 that we provide for free. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any website name that you've registered through our company or elsewhere and then employ them to direct other domains to the dedicated server.
