I am a reseller. I have a customer who wants to sign up 20 accounts for his business. He also wants 20 different IP addresses – one for each domain name. How difficult would it be to get IPs? The company I purchase reselling from states that the customer would have to have a very good reason for obtaining them, which is what I also read. So, how the heck would a customer get that many IPs?
I think He wants 20 different IP addresses for SEO purpose
I think he wants 20 different IP addresses because People sometimes think if one site goes down, since others are not on the same IP they will remain up.
Additional IP addresses is used for nameservers, sometimes anonymous FTP, and SSL.
You Purchase your own dedicated machine because most companies do not grant a great number of IPs, usually just enough to give you nameservers, SSL and a few other essential features.
