A dedicated IP address means that you shall have a distinctive numeric identifier on the Internet and that it shall not be shared with other's sites or applications as it happens with a shared Internet hosting account. There are lots of uses for a dedicated IP - for example, when an SSL certificate is required in case you have a web-based store and you need to accept online payments or if you have a login form and you want the info that users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address may also be used for other programs, such as a VoIP server, for instance. In addition, it shall offer more credibility and security to your Internet sites, given that a network flood to a shared IP won't have any effect on your dedicated IP. If you host your websites with us and you have your own hosting server, you'll be able to get one or numerous dedicated IP addresses with simply a couple of mouse clicks and to use them just in case you cannot use the IP provided with the web server.
