Is it important for a website to have its own unique IP address?

How important is it that a site has its own unique IP address? Does it matter to Google that the IP is shared by other sites?

Ten years ago I put every website on a unique IP address. Now I don't bother about it at all. I still have some sites on uniques but they do no better than others that share IP addresses with up to 300 other sites. It's a convenience if I want to install an SSL certificate or run certain experiments but nothing more IMO.

Not an issue for me.

Some people have experienced a penalty on a shared IP but that was a while back. I use shared IP's and have never had that as an issue

Once upon a time we paid a lot for unique IPs but could never see any significant influence on ranking.

Presumably we all believed the fairy tales of some hosters.
