That's a pretty bad idea!

  • It's a lot harder to remember an IP than a domain.
  • Your IP address may change!
  • You can add sub-domains to domains, but not to IPs.
  • You can't manage your ips with as much flexibility as you can a domain.
  • Domains are CHEAPER!
So really, we don't recommend doing it!
