The list of stuff we can host with extra dedicated IPs?
Hey guys, was wondering apart from having own nameservers, what are other stuffs that we can do with extra IPs? I only know:
* SSL Cert
* IRC Bot?
The reason I was wondering this is because of the fact that to all webhost, IP address seems to be quite a sensitive offer? I actually have to initiate a request ticket from my DC to have them pass me the IPs I've been offered as part of my plan and I have to state a reason for it.
Well, you can certainly run another website on your extra ip... Use SSL too. SSL requires a dedicated ip unless it is a shared certificate. I would read the Terms of Service on your host's website before running any IRC bot. Chances are, they do not allow any IRC connections nor any background processes.
