Go to:

You'll need to sign up for a free account. Use the `Reverse
IP` tool. It will show you most of them.

I can't speak for other hosts, but if we give you IPs to use
with your account they are not assigned to anyone else.
Reseller accounts usually have a certain number of IPs
included for free with the account and additional IPs are
available for a small monthly fee. You may need the
dedicated IPs for sites that require SSL certs etc.

Name based hosting on a shared IP is fine for most of your
typical run-of-the-mill websites.
