If you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number which is used to identify a device connected to the Internet. The website name that you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. As there are many more sites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use a single IP for multiple sites even in case they belong to different users. While this doesn't affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly improve the loading speed of a given site, giving it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you would like to secure the payment or login data that your site visitors enter, you need an IP alongside the SSL.
