What are the pros and cons of using ONLY an IP address for a public web server. What if I do not have a fully qualified domain name pointing to the site on the server? Does this give me limitations later in the ways I can use my web server? I'm thinking of  dubdomains, SSL, etc..

Linux server, 2 Static IP addresses.
