A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the Internet which is allotted to a device or a site. Shared hosting servers usually have a number of websites under the same IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs which are not shared with anyone else. Even if you use a regular shared account, however, it's possible to purchase a dedicated IP address that will be in use only by your websites - one or a few. As this can contribute to the speed of asite, it's much more likely that the site will get better search engine result positions. Certainly, this is not the sole factor, but it can help you have more site visitors and prospective customers. The dedicated IP is also needed when you wish to encode the info exchanged between the site and its visitors through an SSL certificate.
