If you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP address - a special number that is used to distinguish any kind of device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name that you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Since there're a lot more websites than IPs, shared hosting servers use the same IP for a variety of sites even in case they are owned by different users. While this does not affect the site performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly increase the loading speed of a given website, giving it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you plan to secure the payment or login details that your site visitors type in, you will need an IP in addition to the SSL.

In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any website name that you have registered with us or somewhere else and use them to direct other domains to the dedicated server.

If you need more IP addresses than the three the plans include, you're able to buy extra ones in increments of three either throughout the registration process or through your billing Control Panel any time.
