All devices on the Internet are identified by a unique number called an IP address, such as When you have a site, the domain that you enter to access it is for your convenience, however the server where the website files are still has an IP. Since there are a lot more websites and devices than there are IP addresses, all the shared website hosting servers have a number of sites under an identical IP, while with a dedicated server you'll have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you're able to obtain a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you'll have better search engine rankings since a dedicated IP usually means a faster loading website. Last but not least, you need such an IP when you plan to get an SSL certificate for your site and protect the information that your visitors submit on it.
