When you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - a special number that is used to identify any device connected to the Web. The website name that you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. Considering that there are many more sites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use the very same IP for many different websites even if they are owned by different users. While this does not affect the site performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a site, granting it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you plan to protect the payment or login information that your website visitors enter, you will need an IP alongside the SSL.
