In the least, you should probably have 1 IP per interface, unless you're
doing something special where that isn't the default setup. As basically
everyone has already pointed out, if you're doing http/ssl, or anything
other than HTTP (and maybe FTP), you'll need IPs for your domains.

Sure. You can have multiple IPs on multiple interfaces, as well as
multiple IPs on the same physical interface using logical aliases.
