What Is a Dedicated IP?
A dedicated IP is an IP address that only one person is allowed to use. A provider assigns the user a static IP address unique to the user but different from the user’s local IP. With a dedicated IP, all of your web traffic will be funneled through that IP address without sacrificing your security protocols.
What Is the Difference Between a Dedicated IP and a Shared IP?
The primary difference between a dedicated IP and a shared IP is that a dedicated IP is only accessible to one user, and multiple users can access a shared IP.
Users with a dedicated IP use the same IP address no matter where they are or what they’re doing as long as they can connect to that specific VPN server.
On the other hand, shared IPs give multiple users access to a connection through a VPN provider. If a bunch of people in Los Angeles is trying to watch Game of Thrones on HBO, they may be streaming the show through the same VPN. All of the GoT binge-watchers’ data is being funneled through the same server as various other people’s data.
