All devices on the Web are identified by a special number called an IP address, for example When you have a website, the domain that you enter to access it is for your convenience, however the server where the site files are still has an IP. As there are far more websites and devices than there are IP addresses, all the shared website hosting servers have a number of websites under an identical IP, while with a dedicated server you'll get a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you will be able to get a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you'll enjoy far better search engine positions since a dedicated IP often means a quicker loading website. Also, you need such an IP when you would like to purchase an SSL certificate for your site and secure the info that your visitors submit on it.
