    Hello,

    One of the benefit is to isolate from other sites on a shared server. For example, sometimes a DDOS attack can be directed on a shared IP address and as result all sites will be down, but with a dedicated IP such attack will not affect you.

    With new SNI technology, cPanel allows to install several SSL certificates for a one IP address, but some old browsers may show connection problem, in this case you will need a dedicated IP address as well.

    Also, some scripts/softwares may require a dedicated IP too.

    Some of the benefits of dedicated IP are as follows:
    It provides higher stability
    It can help in reputation of email sender
    And as told by David, it is may be required to install some 3rd party applications or scripts

    It is true it can help with the mail reputation, but only if that account is setup to use it's dedicated IP to send email! It is a common misconception that because a site has a dedicated IP, it also is using that IP used to send email. In fact, on most shared (and dedicated) servers, the server's main IP is used to send email, not the account's dedicated IP. The server can be configured to use the site's dedicated IP, but it can create more problems than it solves for non-technical users.

    Less downtime
    Private SSL Certificate

    Actually, all these features are also available for a website with a shared IP address.

    I think it helps in web security and less downtime.
