When you host a website on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number that's used to identify every device connected to the Web. The domain name that 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 address of the server. Because there're far more sites than IPs, shared hosting servers use the very same IP for multiple websites even if they are owned by separate users. Even though this doesn't affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly enhance the loading speed of a certain website, giving it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you want to secure the payment or login info that your site visitors type in, you should have an IP along with the SSL.
