A dedicated IP address suggests that you'll have a unique numeric identifier on the Internet and that it shall not be shared with other's Internet sites or applications as it happens with a shared hosting account. There are many uses for a dedicated IP - including, when an SSL certificate is needed if you have an e-store and you would like 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 apps, such as a VoIP server, for example. In addition, it'll offer more credibility and security to your websites, since a network flood to a shared IP shall not have any effect on your dedicated IP. In case you host your sites with our company and you have your own web server, you'll be able to get one or several 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.
