An IP address is a unique number which identifies a website or a hosting server on the world-wide web, so if you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used just by your websites and will not be shared with others as it happens with shared Internet hosting accounts. In case you have your own server, you shall have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for many different uses. Provided you have a web-based store, for instance, you will need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make certain that the payment info which your clients submit will be encrypted and secure. The same is valid if you have a login form of some sort and you want the usernames and the passwords which visitors enter to be protected. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP, which should be different from the one that you already have on the web server. You could also need an independent IP for an application such as a VoIP server, or if you desire a slightly better efficiency for a particular website, which shall influence its position in search engine results.
