All devices on the World Wide Web are recognized by a special number called an IP address, such as When you have a website, the domain that you enter to be able to load it is for your convenience, but the server where the site files are still has an IP address. Considering that there're a lot more websites and devices than there are IPs, all of the shared hosting servers have a number of sites under an identical IP, while with a dedicated server you'll get a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you can get a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you may have improved search engine rankings as a dedicated IP often means a quicker loading website. Last but not least, you need such an IP if you want to buy an SSL certificate for your site and protect the information that your visitors submit on it.
