When you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP - a unique number which is used to identify any device connected to the Internet. The domain name which you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. As there are far more websites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use the same IP for a variety of websites even in case they belong to different users. While this does not affect your website performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a particular website, granting it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you plan to secure the payment or login details that your site visitors enter, you will need an IP together with the SSL.
