Since there are many more sites and devices than there're IPs, all the shared website hosting servers have a number of sites under an identical IP, whereas with a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you will be able to get a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you may have improved search engine rankings since a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading site. What is more, you need such an IP if you plan to acquire an SSL certificate for your site and protect the data that your visitors submit on it.

If you wish to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you will be able to select everything to be installed automatically.
