I just have a question, I have no idea what area here is appropriate to post this, so I will just say it and take my chances.. I just hope its appropriate somewhere here.
please forward to appropriate area if necessary, as I do not know what area this would be most appropriate for?
moderators: please don't ban me, sometimes you just don't know what area is appropriate, being banned for that is just STUPID and immature. move the message, thats fine, but don't ban me please...
anyway here goes:
from any web hosting provider in general,
is it possible to purchase a static IP address with about 1-2 mb of disk space on it?
I just need a single Static IP address,
I have a server I run from home, and sometimes the computer is turned off, so I need an IP to send the user to when my home server is down.
is it possible to purchase just an IP without requireing a domain name? I didn't know if hosting providers could do that or not.
most web hosting providers have told me I can't purchase their service without a registered domain name, so I didn't know if that could be done or not.
it would really be a big help to me, since I have no other IP's other then my dynamic IP address from home here.
should I just ask any provider, or what?
