    Obtaining an IP Block?

    Hey guys, I'm interested in getting into the hosting business (have been for about 2 years now) I've finally decided to take a chance and actually do it. But I'm still pretty green when it comes to Linux. . So I plan on hosting my own domain first and familiarizing myself with everything.

    My question is, how do I obtain an IP Block to use? I know I can use my upstream provider.. which would be qwest, but they charge a $25 set up fee plus $5/month per IP.. which is pretty expensive. . And I know the big players in the hosting business aren't paying that :-P heh.

    Also, from my understanding I would need 3 static IP's at first.. two for the nameservers and one for the domain.. is that correct?

    Thanks in advance

    If the nameservers are not going to be used for something like anonymous nameservers then you could get away with 2 IPs and host your site on one, then share the other for your other sites.
