    Hello All,

    I'm thinking of doing a stint as a gentleman farmer and I'm a total Noob (might buy myself a landrover and matching green wellington boots as well), please help me U gurus out there.

    I found a provider that offers 16ips:

    H++p://vvv.ixwebhosting.com

    shared reseller plan

    Unlimited Domains Unlimited Data Transfer Unlimited Web Space 3 Free Domain Regs 16 Dedicated Ips

    3 month billing cycle only @ circa 19 USD + one time 30 USD setup.

    Does anyone know if this would be workable and if this is a good deal?

    Would you get a few hosters like ix and do the subfolder thing on the different IPs? (I don't know if you could get control of DNS in these shared reseller plans....anyone heard of this? If so I would do subdomains instead of sub folders... am I talking rubbish?)

    or would you do it like my 2nd option:

    Get a VPS (dedicated is out of my price range) + a whole heap of IPs, set ups DNS and mix and match domain names- subdomains and IPs, like blogging master (again out of my reach @ 2K + 250 per month), install wordpress, collect the necessary plugins- auto posters, rss aggregators etc (recommendations anyone?), then get hold of some multi blog admin script ... (any recommendations here as well)?

    Please could someone explain 2 me about IP Blocks, IP address classes is clear 2 me, I also understand about networks and hosts and the relation between this all and the ip classes, but what is meant by IP "C" blocks, I don't follow this.

    I look forward 2 hearing from all U proponents of internet agriculture out there, many thanks in advance.

    Beast Regards,

    N0H4T

    AKA Dave.

    Hi,

    I am a noob also, but I have been working on the same thing, and have (or had) a lot of the same questions. BHW is a godsend! I have found out much and learned from the generosity of all here.

    Using the search feature on here is the BEST thing you can learn to do. Use the 'advanced' tab and try 'relevancy' and 'show posts' instead of 'show threads'.

    I will try to answer a few of your questions, one at a time.

    Class 'C' IP's:

    As for products, my plan I will use: BlogSlammer (both editions) and for the management I am using wordpressmassinstaller.com ($20/month). Check out the BlogSlammer info, with wordpressmassinstaller it is a great way to get things rolling. Also, learn about WordPress MU.

    I'd be interested to see how you make out with ixwebhosting, their packages look interesting, and I'd be prepared to take a package for 3 months to try them out but they don't take paypal, I'm very wary of giving hosting companies my card number....

    Also their site seems very slow, which may be their hosting... and they mix ssl and non-sll content which is a little unprofessional. Also I get timeouts and 'unreachable' if I try to trace their IP.... could be my crappy ISP but I don't have any problems tracing my dedicated boxes.

    @ Script kiddy as well.

    I decided to go for "indianets" see referred post from mikecclean originally by viratshah.

    this viratshah recommends seo-hosts and claims that they are the cheapest, but I think he is associated to them in some way.
    Indianets is actually cheaper go to there site and check out their seo.php page (no porn though :-( )!!!

    Cheaper is not always the best, but I'm just starting out so I will use them. They charge as follows:

    shared IPs

    5 x IPS 10USD
    10 x IPs 15USD
    15 x IPs 20USD
    20 x IPs 25USD

    Unique IPS:

    5 x IPS 27USD .... Damn the barstewards have raised their prices since last week I think !!!!!!
    10 x IPS 50USD
    20 x IPS 90USD
    up to 40 Uniques.

    Well they still have the best shared+unique prices and I was going to go for shared anyway for my splogs. So I will use "Webair"*c0m for my moneymaking sites using their shared hosting + unique IPs @ 2.50USD each (I think) and they DO allow Porn!!!

    Best Regards,

    Dave
