A dedicated IP address suggests that you'll have a unique numeric identifier on the Internet and that it will not be shared with other people's websites or applications as it happens with a shared web hosting account. There are various uses for a dedicated IP - including, when an SSL certificate is needed in the event that you have an electronic store and you need to accept online payments or in the event that you have a login form and you'd like the info which users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address could also be used for other apps, such as a VoIP server, for instance. Furthermore, it shall offer more credibility and protection to your Internet sites, since a network flood to a shared IP shall not have any impact on your dedicated IP. In case you host your websites with our company and you have your own server, you'll be able to get one or a number of dedicated IP addresses with only a couple of mouse clicks and to use them in case you cannot use the IP that comes with the server.
