All devices on the Internet are recognized by a specific number called an IP address, for instance If you have a website, the domain that you type in order to load it is for your convenience, yet the server where your website files are still has an IP address. Because there're a lot more websites and devices than there're IP addresses, all the shared web hosting servers have a number of websites under an identical IP, whereas when you use a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you are able to acquire a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you will enjoy improved search engine positions since a dedicated IP often means a quicker loading site. What is more, you need such an IP in case you plan to purchase an SSL certificate for your website and shield the data that visitors submit on it.
