A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the Internet that is allotted to a device or a site. Shared hosting servers usually have numerous websites under the same IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs which aren't shared with others. Even when you use a typical shared account, however, you're able to acquire a dedicated IP address that will be used only by your websites - one or a few. Since this can add up to the speed of yoursite, it's more likely that the site will get better search engine result positions. Of course, this isn't the sole factor, but it is likely to help you have more website visitors and potential customers. The dedicated IP is also required if you want to encode the information exchanged between a website and its visitors using an SSL certificate.
