Regarding IP Address. All wesites have an IP address similar to this,right
000.000.00.00 ten digits? I happened to land on a website and find that there are another websites on that same IP address. Does this mean anything. None of these wesites are links or merchants

All IPv4 ip addresses have 4 octets ranging between 0 and 255. So technically, it could be 12 digits.

It's not 10 digits but 32 bits, usually represented as four 8 bit bytes with dots between them. So the largest "number" (for 8 bits) is 255.
Web sites need not have a dedicated IP address, so - yes - you will often see multiple web sites at the same address, even web sites of different owners. A "dedicated" (unique) IP address is only required to have a certificate (for secure applications such as e-commerce).

Thanks for the info! I thought we all had our own IP address. I also thought that each website was assigned this IP number so you could be found on the internet.

No the url name has a name server that points it to a place usually the host. Then they point it again to one of their boxes. And it has your files.
And the multiple websites on one server are why it is called "Shared Hosting".
You rent a part of the server and all have the same IP, unless of course you pay extra for a dedicated IP. But probably no reason at first.
