When you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - a unique number that's used to distinguish any kind of device connected to the Web. The website name that you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. Considering that there are a lot more sites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use the same IP for many different websites even if they belong to several users. While this doesn't affect the site performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly increase the loading speed of a certain site, giving it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so when you would like to secure the payment or login details that your website visitors type in, you need an IP in addition to the SSL.
