If you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP address - a unique number which is used to distinguish a device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name that you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. Because there're a lot more sites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use the very same IP for many different sites even in case they are owned by several users. While this does not affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a particular website, giving it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you want to secure the payment or login details that your site visitors enter, you should have an IP together with the SSL.
