When you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number which is used to distinguish every device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name which you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. Due to the fact that there're far more sites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use the same IP for several sites even if they belong to different users. While this doesn't affect your website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a particular website, providing it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you would like to secure the payment or login information that your site visitors enter, you'll need an IP along with the SSL.
