When you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a unique number which is used to identify any device connected to the Internet. The website name that you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. Because there are a lot more sites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for several websites even if they are owned by separate users. While this doesn't affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a website, providing it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you would like to secure the payment or login data that your website visitors submit, you should have an IP in addition to the SSL.
