A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the Internet which is assigned to a device or a website. Shared hosting servers usually have numerous sites under the same IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs which are not shared with anyone else. Even when you use a common shared account, however, it's possible to obtain a dedicated IP address that will be used only by your websites - one or a few. Since this can contribute to the speed of yoursite, it is more likely that the site will get greater search engine result positions. Certainly, this is not the only factor, but it can help you find more visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also necessary if you want to secure the information exchanged between a site and its visitors with an SSL certificate.
