A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the net that's given to a device or a site. Shared website hosting servers usually have a multitude of sites under a single IP, while dedicated ones have their own IPs which are not shared with anyone else. Even if you use a standard shared account, however, you'll be able to acquire a dedicated IP address that will be used just by your websites - one or a few. Considering that this can contribute to the speed of asite, it's more likely that the website will get better search engine result positions. Of course, this is not the only factor, but it is likely to help you have more visitors and potential customers. The dedicated IP is also required if you'd like to secure the information exchanged between the site and its visitors through an SSL certificate.

You will be able to add or remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any moment. If any of the IPs that you acquire will be used for an SSL certificate, you could activate the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard then our system will request & assign the IP before it installs the certificate automatically. Our versatile platform will enable you to use a dedicated IP address for various websites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Hosting
All the Linux VPS hosting services that we provide feature a dedicated IP address, so you will not share the IP with some other client with an account on the same physical machine. In case you choose a hosting Control Panel for the server during the signup process, you'll receive an extra dedicated IP too and you can use it for any content that you host on the VPS - a website, an application, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, etcetera. If you would like to have more IPs, you'll be able to order them as an extra upgrade through your billing Control Panel and they will be assigned to your server quickly. You'll be able to manage your IPs with ease via your website hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel which you will receive to manage the virtual machine.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting
Considering that you are able to run more or less anything on a dedicated server, all our packages come with three dedicated IP addresses included by default. 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'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 IP addresses for any website name that you've registered with our company or elsewhere then employ them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. If you have a web hosting company, for example, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone service provider. When you need more IP addresses than the three the packages provide you with, you're able to purchase extra ones in increments of three either throughout the signup process or through your billing Control Panel at any time.
