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.
