There are various uses for a dedicated IP - for instance, when an SSL certificate is needed if you have an Internet store and you would like to accept online payments or when you have a login form and you would like the info that users submit to be encrypted. A dedicated IP address could also be used for other apps, such as a VoIP server, for instance.
