How to tell if a website is using shared hosting or just masking IP address?

When I do a reverse lookup on a certain website, it returns a Dyn IP as below:

C:\Users>nslookup xyz.com
Server:  UnKnown
Address:  192.168.1.1

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    xyz.com
Addresses:  216.146.46.11
      216.146.46.10

The IP is owned by Dynamic Network Services, Inc. (a.k.a Dyn). When I did a reverse IP domain check, I happened to find 500+ other websites hosted on same IP. Is this because of shared hosting or is it just hiding the real IP like how Cloudfare does?
