A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the Internet which is assigned to a device or a site. Shared hosting servers usually have a large number of websites under the very same IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs which aren't shared with anybody else. Even if you use a standard shared account, however, it is possible to obtain a dedicated IP address that will be used just by your sites - one or a few. Because this can add up to the speed of yourwebsite, it is much more likely that the website will get improved search engine result rankings. Of course, that isn't the only factor, but it can help you have more website visitors and prospective customers. The dedicated IP is also needed if you'd like to encrypt the information exchanged between a website and its visitors with an SSL certificate.
