When you host a website on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP - a unique number that's used to distinguish any device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name that you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Since there're a lot more websites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use a single IP for a number of websites even in case they belong to different users. Even though this doesn't affect the site performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly increase the loading speed of a certain site, providing it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you want to protect the payment or login data that your website visitors type in, you should have an IP together with the SSL.
