A dedicated IP address means that you'll have a unique numeric identifier on the Internet and that it won't be shared with other people's Internet sites or applications as it happens with a shared hosting account. There are many uses for a dedicated IP - for instance, when an SSL certificate is required if you have an electronic store and you want to accept online payments or in case you have a login form and you'd like the information which users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address could also be used for other apps, such as a VoIP server, for instance. In addition, it will provide more credibility and security to your websites, considering the fact that a network flood to a shared IP shall not have any effect on your dedicated IP. If you host your Internet sites with our company and you have your own server, you will be able to get one or a number of dedicated IP addresses with just a couple of mouse clicks and to use them in case you cannot use the IP that comes with the web server.
