A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the web that is given to a device or a website. Shared web hosting servers usually have numerous sites under the very same IP, while dedicated ones have their own IPs that are not shared with others. Even when you use a regular shared account, however, it is possible to acquire a dedicated IP address that will be in use only by your sites - one or a few. Because this can add up to the speed of yoursite, it is more likely that the site will get superior search engine result positions. Certainly, this isn't the only factor, but it can help you get more visitors and prospective customers. The dedicated IP is also needed when you want to secure the information exchanged between the site and its visitors through an SSL certificate.

Since you are able to run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all our packages come with 3 dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you want to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you can use the IPs that we provide without charge. You can also register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any website name that you've registered through us or somewhere else then use them to direct other domains to the dedicated server.
