comment Do all US providers refuse issuing a separate IPv4 address for a separate website?
HostGator uses The Planet (merged to ... to SoftLayer). You can see SoftLayer comment on IPs assignment at blog.softlayer.com/2011/ipv4-justification-changes-in-ims . So HostGator have to justify their assignment to SoftLayer when requesting new IPs. Yes, there's nothing limiting on what one can do with already assigned IPs, but since we're talking about hosting companies with hopefully expanding business and hence constantly in need of more IPs, they have to justify their, and in turn their customers use.

Actually, one can and are limited for IPv4 addresses. For a long time now, there's been a justification requirement when requesting IP addresses. First by IANA policies implementation at the regional RIR level for data centre & ISP, and in turn the ISP requiring it from the hosting companies & end-users. With IPv4 exhaustion, the justification requirments has only became and will become even more and more stringent. A hosting company that do not enforce justification requirments from its customers will exhaust its IP pool quicker and then find it impossible to get new ones.
