Dedicated IP addresses are IP addresses assigned to your web hosting account only for as long as you retain the account. It will not change over the duration. On the other hand, shared IP addresses may be assigned to multiple web hosting accounts simultaneously.
Most shared hosting accounts will use shared IP addresses, while Virtual Private Server (VPS) accounts get dedicated IP addresses. ScalaHosting provides all VPS customers two dedicated IP addresses for each account, with options to increase the number.
