If you host a website on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - a unique number that's used to detect any kind of device connected to the Internet. The domain name which you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. Considering that there're far more websites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for a number of sites even in case they belong to several users. Even though this does not affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a certain site, providing it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so if you would like to protect the payment or login details that your website visitors enter, you should have an IP together with the SSL.
