A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the Internet that's given to a device or a website. Shared hosting servers usually have a multitude of websites under a single IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs which are not shared with anybody else. Even if you use a common shared account, however, you can get a dedicated IP address that will be used only by your sites - one or a few. Because this can contribute to the speed of yoursite, it's more likely that the site will get better search engine result positions. Certainly, that isn't the only factor, but it is likely to help you have more website visitors and prospective customers. The dedicated IP is also needed if you would like to encrypt the information exchanged between the website and its visitors using an SSL certificate.
