A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the net that is allotted to a device or a site. Shared website hosting servers usually have a lot of sites under the very same IP, while dedicated ones have their own IPs which aren't shared with others. Even when you use a regular shared account, however, it is possible to get a dedicated IP address that will be used just by your sites - one or a few. Since this can contribute to the speed of yourwebsite, it's more likely that the website will get better search engine result positions. Certainly, this is not the only factor, but it is likely to help you find more visitors and prospective customers. The dedicated IP is also necessary when you want to encode the info exchanged between the website and its visitors using an SSL certificate.
