All devices on the Internet are recognized by a specific number called an IP address, for instance 123.123.123.123. If you have a site, the domain that you type to be able to access it is for your convenience, however the server where your website files are still has an IP. Since there are many more sites and devices than there're IPs, all shared hosting servers have a number of sites under an identical IP, whereas using a dedicated server you'll get a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you're able to acquire a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you'll enjoy far better search engine positions as a dedicated IP usually means a quicker loading website. Also, you need such an IP if you plan to purchase an SSL certificate for your website and shield the data that your visitors submit on it.

You can switch the IP that a website uses from the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You can also set a couple of of your sites to use the same dedicated IP as long as there is no SSL set up for it.
