Even in the first case though, you'll be able to obtain a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you may get far better search engine positions because a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading site. What's more, you need such an IP when you want to buy an SSL certificate for your website and shield the info that your visitors submit on it.
