A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the Internet that's allotted to a device or a site. Shared web hosting servers usually have a lot of sites under the very same IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs that are not shared with others. Even if you use a common shared account, however, you'll be able to buy a dedicated IP address that will be in use just by your sites - one or a few. Because this can contribute to the speed of thesite, it is more likely that the website will get better search engine result rankings. Certainly, this is not the only factor, but it is likely to help you find more site visitors and potential customers. The dedicated IP is also required when you intend to encode the info exchanged between the website and its visitors by using an SSL certificate.
