When you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP - a unique number that is used to distinguish any device connected to the Net. The domain name which you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. As there are many more websites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for several websites even in case they are owned by separate users. While this doesn't affect the site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly enhance the loading speed of a website, providing it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you want to secure the payment or login information that your site visitors submit, you should have an IP together with the SSL.
