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