If you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - an exclusive number which is used to distinguish any kind of device connected to the Web. The website name which you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Because there're far more websites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use the same IP for many different sites even if they are owned by different users. Even though this does not affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly increase the loading speed of a website, providing it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you wish to protect the payment or login details that your site visitors submit, you'll need an IP together with the SSL.
