A dedicated IP address means that you shall have a unique numeric identifier on the Internet and that it will not be shared with other people's websites or apps as it happens with a shared web 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 if you have a login form and you'd like the information that users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address could also be used for other programs, like a VoIP server, for example. Additionally, it'll supply more credibility and protection to your Internet sites, since a network flood to a shared IP will not have any impact on your dedicated IP. In the event that you host your websites with our company and you have your own web server, you shall 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 hosting server.
