Long time ago, I ran a dozen domains or so off one IP. Then, did a

Now I have a chance to decrease my colo costs significantly, but only
8 IP's come with the
service (I can get more, but it gets more expensive).
I can not think of any drawbacks to doing it. I only offer web, ftp
and mail service (apache,
proftp and exim). The only thing I can think of is that reverse dns
will not work correctly,
but I see no reason that should impact these services.
The only thing I can think of is that SSL requires separate IPs for
each virtual host that needs encryption functionality.
