A dedicated IP address suggests that you shall have a distinctive numeric identifier on the Internet and that it won't be shared with other's websites or apps as it happens with a shared hosting account. There are various uses for a dedicated IP - for instance, when an SSL certificate is required if you have an e-store and you would like to accept online payments or if you have a login form and you'd like the data which users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address can also be used for other apps, like a VoIP server, for instance. Moreover, it will provide more credibility and protection to your websites, considering the fact that a network flood to a shared IP will not have any effect on your dedicated IP. In the event that you host your Internet sites with us and you have your own server, you shall be able to get one or several dedicated IP addresses with just a couple of mouse clicks and to use them in the event that you cannot use the IP included with the web server.
