All devices on the Internet are recognized by a unique number called an IP address, for example 123.123.123.123. In case you have a site, the domain name that you type in order to access it is for your convenience, however the server where your website files are still has an IP. As there're a lot more sites and devices than there are IP addresses, all shared website hosting servers have a number of sites under the same IP, while with a dedicated server you'll get a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you are able to acquire a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you may enjoy better search engine positions as a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading website. What is more, you need such an IP in case you want to buy an SSL certificate for your website and shield the data that visitors submit on it.
