the main benefit of having a dedicated ip address is being able to access your site through the IP address directly. For example:

Dedicated IP account: 67.19.72.118
Shared IP account: 67.19.72.116/~youraccount

Dedicated IP addresses are normally used for

- Anonymous FTP
- SSL

This will better help me provide an explanation of which is better for your use.

For testing you mean? Because if you telnet to port 80 and use host: headers you can still test, even if you virtual host.

As codman said, knowing the intended purpose I think, might derive a more substantial answer.

The tilde username(~username) is but the default setup for Apache and users; it is not by any means required. Additionally, one may use as many virtual host stanzas as needed for distinct domains.
So rather than using IP based aliases, you would use host based, such as;

Code: [ Select ]
  NameVirtualHost *

  <VirtualHost *>
  ServerName www.domain.tld
  DocumentRoot /www/domain
  </VirtualHost>

  <VirtualHost *>
  ServerName www.otherdomain.tld
  DocumentRoot /www/otherdomain
  </VirtualHost>
  1.   NameVirtualHost *
  2.   <VirtualHost *>
  3.   ServerName www.domain.tld
  4.   DocumentRoot /www/domain
  5.   </VirtualHost>
  6.   <VirtualHost *>
  7.   ServerName www.otherdomain.tld
  8.   DocumentRoot /www/otherdomain
  9.   </VirtualHost>


Cheers.
