A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the net that's given to a device or a website. Shared website hosting servers usually have a lot of websites under the same IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs that aren't shared with others. Even if you use a typical shared account, however, it's possible to get a dedicated IP address that will be used only by your sites - one or a few. Since this can add up to the speed of yoursite, it is much more likely that the site will get better search engine result rankings. Of course, that isn't the sole factor, but it is likely to help you have more website visitors and potential customers. The dedicated IP is also needed if you wish to encode the info exchanged between a website and its visitors with an SSL certificate.
