If I were to buy a reseller account, why should I get a dedicated IP with it?
Will this make it easier to access? I'm confused on the subject and have tried searching the forums.

A dedicated IP for a website allows you to have a place you can always access your website, whether your domain name is resolving or not. Always good to have one. If you're a reseller, you'll want one for each of your clients probaly.

You can still access your site through a shared IP address. You don't necessarily need a dedicated ip address even though your domain name isn't resolving. The main uses of dedicated ip addresses are as follows:

- Private SSL certificate
- Anonymous FTP server
