If you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP address - a special number that's used to detect any kind of device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name which you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. As there are many more websites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use the same IP for multiple sites even if they belong to separate users. While this doesn't affect the site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a given site, giving it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you would like to secure the payment or login information that your site visitors type in, you'll need an IP along with the SSL.
