What is a unique IP Address?

Purchasing a unique IP address allows you to connect directly to an IP address supplied to you without having to add a port number on the end. Your server will have the default port of 25565. This can make it easier for other people to remember your server address, and allows you to also point your server to a domain name. eg people could connect to an address such as : myminecraftserver.com
 
It can also reduce the chance of people accidentally joining your server as you are not sharing an IP address with anyone else, and hence less chance your server will get griefed. Also there is less chance your server will be affected by other people who may cause the shared IP address to be flooded with traffic, etc.
