A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the net which is assigned to a device or a website. Shared hosting servers usually have plenty of websites under the very same IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs that are not shared with anyone else. Even if you use a standard shared account, however, it's possible to acquire a dedicated IP address that will be used only by your websites - one or a few. Considering that this can contribute to the speed of asite, it's more likely that the website will get better search engine result positions. Certainly, this isn't the sole factor, but it is likely to help you find more website visitors and potential customers. The dedicated IP is also needed if you wish to encrypt the information exchanged between a website and its visitors through an SSL certificate.
