With a dedicated IP address, you shall have a unique number that will identify you on the Internet and that will not be shared with anybody else or associated with other sites. The most common use of a dedicated IP is the one which includes the setting up of an SSL certificate, which may be employed to encrypt the connection between an Internet site and its visitors, so if they have to log in or to submit payment info, their info shall be secured. Additionally, you'll get better search engine rankings, due to the fact that your website will load faster and shall not have the same address as Internet sites that load slowly or have a questionable reputation. A dedicated IP address could also be employed to access software such as a VoIP application or another type of server. With our server packages, you can order additional dedicated IPs easily and assign them to any online program which you host instead of the IP address included with the server by default.
