Internet Protocol requires an address to route traffic to the correct destination.  Just like a postal address at your house helps the post office deliver mail to a specific destination, an IP address is used by the routers to deliver your email and your web data to you.

The URL (uniform resource locator) you type, such as "blurtit.com" is a human readable version of an address, but it first goes through a domain name service to look up the actual IP address.  The actual address is a 32 bit or 128 bit number, which would be very difficult to remember.  URLs make remembering a website easier.
