All devices on the Internet are recognized by a specific number called an IP address, such as When you have a site, the domain name that you type to access it is for your convenience, yet the server where your site files are still has an IP address. Because there are many more sites and devices than there are IP addresses, all shared web hosting servers have a number of sites under an identical IP, whereas when you use a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you are able to obtain a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you will get improved search engine positions because a dedicated IP usually means a faster loading site. In addition, you need such an IP if you intend to get an SSL certificate for your website and protect the info that visitors submit on it.
