A dedicated IP address suggests that you will have a distinctive numeric identifier on the Internet and that it will not be shared with other's Internet sites or apps as it happens with a shared hosting account. There are various uses for a dedicated IP - including, when an SSL certificate is needed in the event that you have a web-based store and you would like to accept online payments or if you have a login form and you want the data that users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address can also be used for other apps, like a VoIP server, for example. Additionally, it shall offer more credibility and protection to your sites, 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 websites with us and you have your own server, you will be able to get one or a number of dedicated IP addresses with simply a couple of mouse clicks and to use them in the event that you cannot use the IP included with the server.
