A dedicated IP address ensures that you will have a distinctive numeric identifier on the Internet and that it won't be shared with other's websites or applications as it happens with a shared Internet hosting account. There are lots of uses for a dedicated IP - including, when an SSL certificate is needed in case you have an Internet store and you would like 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 may also be used for other apps, like a VoIP server, for instance. Furthermore, it will provide more credibility and protection to your sites, considering the fact that a network flood to a shared IP won't have any impact on your dedicated IP. If you host your websites with our company and you have your own hosting server, you shall be able to get one or several dedicated IP addresses with only a couple of mouse clicks and to use them just in case you cannot use the IP provided with the web server.
