    I'm doing some work on a social network and they seem to ban your webhosting IP after sometime.

    My question is what is the best way to get a new IP instead of canceling my current plan and getting a new one?

    VPS, Dedicated servers? Or if it comes to it just cancel and renew my plan maybe on a different web host provider.

    With normal hosts you cant do anything else just cancel your current and order a new one. If you have a dedicated with some bh guy who knows why do you need to change ips they will do it at the price of the cpanel license, which is like 20 or $30. If you need some help in that just pm me.

    If you're on a shared webhosting plan, the easiest way is to pay for a dedicated IP/upgrade to a plan that allows that. Just say you want to install an SSL certificate and you'll need a dedicated IP address. Most webhosts will upgrade easily. Some of them even charge peanuts for this ($1.50-$5.00 month), some add a one time 'setup fee', and others require you to upgrade your plan.

    Just check that in the upsell or add-on page of your current host or any host that catches your eye.
