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's Internet sites or apps as it happens with a shared hosting account. There are many uses for a dedicated IP - including, when an SSL certificate is required if you have an online store and you need to accept online payments or in the event that you have a login form and you would like the data which users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address can also be used for other applications, such as a VoIP server, for example. Furthermore, it'll supply more credibility and security to your Internet sites, since a network flood to a shared IP won't 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'll be able to get one or several dedicated IP addresses with only a couple of clicks and to use them in the event that you cannot use the IP included with the hosting server.
