An IP address is a unique number that identifies a site or a web server on the Internet, so if you have a dedicated IP, it'll be used only by your websites and shall not be shared with other people as it happens with shared web hosting accounts. Provided you have your own web server, you'll have a dedicated IP, but you may need additional ones for different uses. In case you have a web-based store, for example, you'll need an SSL certificate for it, in order to make sure that the payment information which your clients submit shall be encrypted and protected. The same is valid if you have a login form of some kind and you wish the usernames and the passwords which visitors type in to be secured. The SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address, which has to be different from the one that you already have on the server. You might also need an independent IP for an app such as a VoIP server, or if you want a slightly better performance for a given website, which may affect its position in search engine results.

In the first case, the dedicated addresses will be available the instant the virtual server is prepared, while in the second - a couple of minutes after you buy them. You'll be able to renew the IPs together with your VPS plan and use them for so long as you wish. They can prove useful not just for your own Internet sites, but also for the websites of any clients that you might have in case you are using the virtual server to run a hosting reseller business. There isn't a restriction on how frequently you could order additional IPs or on the amount of of them you could use with your web server at any moment.
