If you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number that's used to identify any kind of device connected to the World Wide Web. 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 of the server. Due to the fact that there're a lot more sites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for many different sites even if they are owned by different users. Even though this doesn't affect the site performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly increase the loading speed of a website, granting it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you would like to secure the payment or login info that your site visitors type in, you should have an IP together with the SSL.
