All devices on the Internet are identified by a specific number called an IP address, for instance If you have a website, the domain that you type to load it is to save you time, however the server where the website files are still has an IP address. Because there're many more sites and devices than there're IP addresses, all the shared website hosting servers have a number of sites under an identical IP, while using a dedicated server you'll get a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you'll be able to obtain a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you will get far better search engine rankings because a dedicated IP often means a faster loading site. Also, you need such an IP when you intend to get an SSL certificate for your website and secure the info that visitors submit on it.
