When you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number which is used to detect any kind of device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name that you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Due to the fact that there are a lot more sites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for a number of sites even if they are owned by different users. While this does not affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a particular site, giving it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you plan to protect the payment or login details that your site visitors enter, you should have an IP together with the SSL.
