All devices on the Web are recognized by a special number called an IP address, such as If you have a site, the domain name that you type to open it is for your convenience, yet the server where the site files are still has an IP. Because there are many more websites and devices than there are IP addresses, all of the shared hosting servers have a number of websites under an identical IP, whereas using a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you're able to acquire a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you'll have better search engine positions as a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading site. Last but not least, you need such an IP in case you want to obtain an SSL certificate for your site and shield the data that your visitors submit on it.
