All devices on the World Wide Web are identified by a special number called an IP address, for instance In case you have a website, the domain name that you enter to be able to open it is for your convenience, but the server where your site files are still has an IP. Due to the fact that there are a lot more sites and devices than there are IPs, all of the shared web hosting servers have a number of sites under the very same IP, while when you use a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you'll be able to acquire a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you'll get far better search engine positions because a dedicated IP usually means a quicker loading site. In addition, you need such an IP in case you intend to purchase an SSL certificate for your site and secure the information that your visitors submit on it.
