Due to the fact that there are many more websites and devices than there are IP addresses, all of the shared web hosting servers have a number of websites under an identical IP, while using a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you can get a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you'll enjoy better search engine positions since a dedicated IP often means a quicker loading website.
