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 websites or applications as it happens with a shared hosting account. There are lots of uses for a dedicated IP - for instance, when an SSL certificate is required in case you have an online store and you would like to accept online payments or if you have a login form and you want the information that users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address may also be used for other applications, such as a VoIP server, for instance. Moreover, it'll supply more credibility and protection to your Internet sites, considering the fact that a network flood to a shared IP will not have any impact on your dedicated IP. If you host your Internet sites with our company and you have your own hosting server, you will be able to get one or several dedicated IP addresses with only a couple of clicks and to use them in case you cannot use the IP provided with the web server.
