When you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - an exclusive number that is used to identify any device connected to the Web. The domain name that you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Due to the fact that there are many more sites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for many different websites even if they are owned by separate users. Even though this does not affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a particular website, providing it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you wish to protect the payment or login info that your website visitors type in, you should have an IP alongside the SSL.
