All devices on the Internet are identified by a specific number called an IP address, for instance If you have a site, the domain that you enter to be able to access it is to save you time, yet the server where your website files are still has an IP. Considering that there are far more websites and devices than there are IP addresses, all of the shared website hosting servers have a number of websites under the same IP, while using a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you're able to acquire a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you will have superior search engine positions because a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading site. What is more, you need such an IP in case you want to buy an SSL certificate for your site and secure the info that visitors submit on it.
