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 people's websites or applications as it happens with a shared Internet hosting account. There are various uses for a dedicated IP - for example, when an SSL certificate is needed if you have an Internet store and you need to accept online payments or in the event that you have a login form and you want the data that users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address could also be used for other programs, like a VoIP server, for instance. Furthermore, it shall offer more credibility and security to your sites, since a network flood to a shared IP shall not have any effect on your dedicated IP. In the event that you host your sites with us and you have your own hosting server, you shall be able to get one or a number of dedicated IP addresses with just a couple of clicks and to use them in case you cannot use the IP provided with the hosting server.
