When you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a unique number which is used to detect any kind of device connected to the Internet. The domain name that you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Considering that there're many more websites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use the same IP for multiple sites even if they belong to separate users. While this doesn't affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a particular website, providing it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you wish to protect the payment or login information that your website visitors type in, you need an IP in addition to the SSL.
