When you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number that's used to distinguish a device connected to the Net. The domain name which you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Considering that there are many more sites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use the same IP for multiple sites even if they belong to different users. While this doesn't affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a particular website, providing it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you plan to protect the payment or login details that your website visitors enter, you should have an IP in addition to the SSL.
