A dedicated IP address ensures that you'll have a distinctive numeric identifier on the Internet and that it won't be shared with other's sites or applications as it happens with a shared web hosting account. There are various uses for a dedicated IP - for example, when an SSL certificate is required in case you have an online store and you want to accept online payments or in the event that you have a login form and you'd like the information that users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address may also be used for other applications, like a VoIP server, for instance. Furthermore, it'll give more credibility and security to your websites, considering the fact that a network flood to a shared IP shall not have any effect on your dedicated IP. In the event that you host your websites with our company and you have your own web server, you will be able to get one or a number of dedicated IP addresses with simply a couple of mouse clicks and to use them in the event that you cannot use the IP included with the web server.
