A dedicated IP address suggests that you'll have a unique numeric identifier on the Internet and that it won't be shared with other's websites or applications as it happens with a shared Internet hosting account. There are many uses for a dedicated IP - for instance, when an SSL certificate is needed if you have a web-based store and you want to accept online payments or if you have a login form and you'd like the information which users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address may also be used for other apps, like a VoIP server, for instance. Furthermore, it'll supply more credibility and security to your sites, since a network flood to a shared IP will not have any effect on your dedicated IP. If you host your Internet sites with our company and you have your own web server, you will be able to get one or several dedicated IP addresses with simply a couple of mouse clicks and to use them in the event that you cannot use the IP provided with the web server.
