Can anyone direct me to some reliable web hosting packages that provide unique C-class IP addresses even for the add-on domains ''on one main hosting account'' ?

    Once it is an add-on dmain, you can not assign dedicated ip. It gets ip from main domain.

    The domain has to be seperate domain.

      That's not a true statement. It depends on your backend software. I use nexcess.net with InterWorx control panel and I can request as many dedicated IP addresses as I want ($2/month fee). They don't always give you a distinct class-C, but if you butter up the right support person, sometimes they'll help you out.

        Then the domains you are adding in your panel are not actually add-on domains. Those could be created like creating in a reseller panel.

        Actual add-on domains are like a subfolders under a main account.

        If you ftp into your main account and see your domains like this:

        /mainaccount.com/
        /secondsite.com
        /thirdsite.com/

        Then those are not add-on domains. You are creating sites in your reseller panel parallel to your main account. You can assign ips in this case.

        If you see your sites like this -

        /mainaccount.com/
        /mainaccount.com/secondsite.com/
        /mainaccount.com/thirdsite.com/

        then they are subdomains or add-on somains.

          Listen, I'm not trying to start a fight here, but you're wrong! Either you're using incorrect terminology, or something, but you are making incorrect statements. Maybe you've never had a host that is set up to do this, or something... but they do exist!

          I ASSURE YOU, you can convert a shared domain to a dedicated IP address. I've done it many times on several different hosts.

            OK ... OK ... Geez ... I just explained what I know, why I thought so and how to know yours are add-on or reseller type account creation.

            That is what I am saying. Shared domain (if is a parallel account, you can assign ip), but not add-on domain under a main account (which is under a mainaccount hostpanel.)

              Ok, I have to ask...

              I'm guessing the "C Class" you are talking about is a Class C subnet - 255.255.255.0

              Why the need for these specific "C Class" addresses?

                The "theory" is that if you have two domains, each on a different class C subnet, your links from one domain to the other will carry just a little more juice than if you have two domains with IP addresses right next to each other.

                Also, this is how you can hide an entire linking network from Google. If you plot out your ip addresses and DNS servers strategically, it'll be very difficult for Google to automatically discover your linking network.

    Hello, Ehicks,
    I will appreciate if you'd reveal some hosts which provide dedicated c-class ip addresses for the main domain account as well as add-on domains pls. Thanks.
    I'd browse thru their offerings/specs.
    Thanks,
    Rajul

    IX hosting gives you 15 unique IPs on their shared hosting plan. Not sure if they are cross-class C or not...

    Also to clarify for you. Not all shared hosts use the sub/add-on domain approach to 'unlimited' accounts. Many use something called 'multiadmin' where you actually get your own cPanel for every single domain.
