If you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - a special number that's used to identify a device connected to the Net. The website name that you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. Since there are far more sites than IPs, shared hosting servers use the very same IP for a number of websites even if they belong to several users. While this doesn't affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a certain website, giving it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you wish to secure the payment or login details that your site visitors enter, you'll need an IP alongside the SSL.
