When you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a special number which is used to detect every device connected to the Net. The website name that you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Due to the fact that there're a lot more websites than IPs, shared hosting servers use a single IP for a variety of sites even in case they are owned by separate users. While this does not affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly increase the loading speed of a given site, giving it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you want to protect the payment or login info that your website visitors enter, you will need an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting
All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we provide include 3 dedicated IP addresses by default and absolutely free. You can use them for any kind of purpose based on the content that you have on your server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your clients can use to point domains to their web hosting accounts, and many more.
