It is not necessary to purchase dedicated IP for small scale and basic website, you can use a shared IP for it.

Class C Ip address can be dedicated or shared. If there is only a single website under the IP then it can be considered as a dedicated Ip for it.

Class C IP addresses range from 192.0.0.x to 223.255.255.x. The default subnet mask for Class C is 255.255.255.x.

Class C gives 2097152 (221) Network addresses and 254 (28-2) Host addresses.

IP Address (Internet Protocol Address) is a unique address that computing devices such as personal computers, tablets, and smartphones use to identify itself and communicate with other devices in the IP network. Any device connected to the IP network must have a unique IP address within the network. An IP address is analogous to a street address or telephone number in that it is used to uniquely identify an entity.

The dedicated IP is used for website if you need the website to run on the IP address which is other than the shared IP address. If there is SSL then it is used to installed on the dedicated IP.

It does not mean that the website will run from the other server, it will run from the same server , the IP will from the range of the IP address of shared hosting server.

Understanding the differenc classes of IP addresses is better done if you take a networking course of some kind.
As for the SSL certificate and dedicated IP, its always best to have a dedicated IP on a server, cPanel even offers free SSL certificates, or you can get it with letsencrypt if y you dont want the cost of it.

nowadays if your hosting provider has SNI enabled, it is not even necessary to have a dedicated IP while installing SSL. Usually dedicated IP is necessary when you need SSL installed. Unless there is no point in having dedicated IP.
