When you host a website on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number that's used to identify every device connected to the Net. The domain name that you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Considering that there are many more sites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for many different websites even if they are owned by separate users. While this doesn't affect the site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a given site, granting it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you would like to protect the payment or login info that your website visitors enter, you should have an IP along with the SSL.
