A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the world wide web which is assigned to a device or a website. Shared hosting servers usually have a number of websites under a single IP, while dedicated ones have their own IPs which are not shared with others. Even when you use a regular shared account, however, you can purchase a dedicated IP address that will be used just by your sites - one or a few. Since this can contribute to the speed of awebsite, it is much more likely that the site will get improved search engine result rankings. Certainly, this isn't the only factor, but it is likely to help you have more website visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also required if you'd like to encrypt the information exchanged between a website and its visitors through an SSL certificate.
