A dedicated IP address ensures that you'll have a distinctive numeric identifier on the Internet and that it will not be shared with other's Internet sites or apps as it happens with a shared web hosting account. There are many uses for a dedicated IP - including, when an SSL certificate is needed if you have an Internet store and you want to accept online payments or when you have a login form and you would like the info that users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address could also be used for other applications, such as a VoIP server, for example. Moreover, it will give more credibility and protection to your sites, considering the fact that a network flood to a shared IP won't have any impact on your dedicated IP. In case you host your Internet sites with our company and you have your own server, you'll be able to get one or several dedicated IP addresses with just a couple of mouse clicks and to use them just in case you cannot use the IP that comes with the hosting server.
