When you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a special number which is used to detect any kind of device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name that you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. Considering that there're many more websites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use the same IP for multiple sites even in case they belong to separate users. While this does not affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly improve the loading speed of a site, providing it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you plan to protect the payment or login data that your website visitors enter, you'll need an IP alongside the SSL.
