All devices on the Internet are recognized by a special number called an IP address, for instance When you have a website, the domain name that you enter to load it is to save you time, yet the server where the website files are still has an IP address. Because there are a lot more websites and devices than there are IP addresses, all the shared hosting servers have a number of sites under the very same IP, whereas when you use a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you'll be able to acquire a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you may get improved search engine rankings since a dedicated IP often means a faster loading site. Furthermore, you need such an IP when you would like to acquire an SSL certificate for your site and shield the data that your visitors submit on it.
