If you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - an exclusive number which is used to distinguish any device connected to the Internet. The website name which you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. Due to the fact that there are a lot more websites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use a single IP for several websites even if they are owned by several users. While this does not affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly boost the loading speed of a particular site, giving it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you wish to protect the payment or login details that your site visitors enter, you will need an IP together with the SSL.
