A dedicated IP address suggests that you shall have a distinctive numeric identifier on the Internet and that it will not be shared with other's sites or apps as it happens with a shared web hosting account. There are various uses for a dedicated IP - for instance, when an SSL certificate is needed if you have a web-based store and you need to accept online payments or when you have a login form and you want the data that users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address may also be used for other applications, like a VoIP server, for example. Moreover, it shall give more credibility and protection to your websites, since a network flood to a shared IP won't have any effect on your dedicated IP. In the event that you host your Internet sites with our company and you have your own web server, you'll be able to get one or numerous dedicated IP addresses with just a couple of mouse clicks and to use them just in case you cannot use the IP that comes with the server.
