When talking about an ethernet shield, you're right. But mkcinek is also talking about an ESP8266 as well. This is - I'd say the perfect addition.

You can run the whole webserver on this chip - making a Webpage (plain html or better go with websockets) and use it from everywhere (smartphone, browser,..)

For many I/Os, the display, serial in - outs - stay with your arduino - give the data to the esp8266 and runn the webdata there. A perfect combination
