A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the net which is assigned to a device or a website. Shared website hosting servers usually have numerous sites under the same IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs which are not shared with others. Even when you use a typical shared account, however, you're able to buy a dedicated IP address that will be used only by your sites - one or a few. Since this can contribute to the speed of thewebsite, it's much more likely that the website will get improved search engine result positions. Certainly, that isn't the only factor, but it is likely to help you have more site visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also needed if you wish to encrypt the info exchanged between a site and its visitors using an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

In case you buy a VPS server from us, you'll receive a dedicated IP address by default and a second one when you get a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You will be able to use the IPs for any kind of purpose - a site, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you'll be able to use to point to your VPS any domain name which you intend to host. Also, you can add more dedicated IP addresses to your VPS account if you need them. This can be done via the billing Control Panel that you will get in order to control renewals, upgrades and domain registrations and it takes no more than a few clicks. Soon after you upload your order, the additional IP addresses will be available, so you will be able to use them as you see fit.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All of the dedicated servers that we offer come with three dedicated IP addresses as standard and for free. You will be able to use them for any purpose depending on the content that you have on your server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your customers may use to direct domain names to their website hosting accounts, and many other things. What's more, you can purchase extra dedicated IPs from the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones which come with your plan. You're able to purchase the IPs in groups of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server soon after you send your order, so you can use them with no delays.
