A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the world wide web that's given to a device or a site. Shared website hosting servers usually have a lot of websites under a single IP, while dedicated ones have their own IPs which aren't shared with anybody else. Even if you use a common shared account, however, you'll be able to get a dedicated IP address that will be used only by your websites - one or a few. Because this can add up to the speed of awebsite, it is more likely that the website will get superior search engine result positions. Certainly, this isn't the only factor, but it is likely to help you get more site visitors and potential customers. The dedicated IP is also required when you wish to encrypt the info exchanged between a site and its visitors using an SSL certificate.
