When you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP - a unique number that's used to identify a device connected to the Net. The website name that you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Considering that there're many more websites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use the very same IP for multiple sites even if they belong to different users. While this does not affect your website performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a certain site, giving it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you wish to secure the payment or login info that your site visitors enter, you will need an IP together with the SSL.
