When you host a site on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - a special number which is used to distinguish any device connected to the Net. The website name which you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. Because there're a lot more websites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use a single IP for a variety of sites even if they belong to separate users. Even though this doesn't affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a particular site, giving it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you want to protect the payment or login details that your site visitors enter, you will need an IP alongside the SSL.
