Multiple domains pointed to one server ... different IPs?

    I'm looking to see if there is a way to have all my subdomains, which are all hosted on the same server as my primary domain, look as though they come from different locations via IPs that track back to different geolocations.

    The Hosting Forum didn't quite look like the place to ask this question, so the best I could figure was here. Any ideas?

    VPS for each domain name would do the trick.

    I'd be able to set those up to access them all in the same cPanel?

    If you have WHM (reseller account) you can add your subdomain on different cpanel accounts. And IP address for subdomains will be assigned by your host.

    I don't think it's possible for one cPanel account to have more than one IP.

    You could signup for a reseller account with multiple IPs however they won't be from different geolocations. They will all be from the same data center.

    If they need different geolocations then you would need to rent some cheap Linux VPS from multiple providers.

    For this, I never know if you do not post it, I would not know.
    And then I learned the most about it.

    It would be tough to do as if you have one server thats physically located in one area, all the IP addresses would be in that location as well.

    What may be worth asking of your provider is if they have IP addresses in multiple countries that they could point at your server. Not saying they would do it but worth an ask.

    In my years hosting I have never seen this happen but things change :)

    Other than that, like what has been mentioned, the only other thing to do is get multiple VPSes and use them but you will have to have cPanel on each one.

    If its the cost of cPanel across multiple VPSes, take a look at VestaCP, its free and works if you don't want anything special done! That will save about $15 a month per VPS!

    Cheers
