If you host a website on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - an exclusive number which is used to detect every device connected to the Internet. The domain name which you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Since there are many more websites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use a single IP for a number of sites even in case they are owned by several users. While this doesn't affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly boost the loading speed of a certain website, giving it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so when you want to secure the payment or login data that your site visitors type in, you should have an IP along with the SSL.

You are able to use them for any purpose according to the content that you have on the server - an online game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your clients may use to redirect domains to their hosting accounts, etceterra. You'll also be able to get additional dedicated IP addresses through the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones which come with the server. You're able to buy the IPs in groups of three and they shall be added to your dedicated server shortly after you send your order, so you can use them with no delays.
