    A question about VPS setup

    I have a quick question if someone can help me. Please don't get thrown off by the generic data.

    I want to achieve privacy for my websites. ie. people looking at DNS and other IP info cannot detect what websites are sitting on my VPS ( note that I don't mind that the IPs are not C class ).

    Please pay close attention to the IP addresses.

    Say I have 3 domain names on following IPs:

    Shared IP is 111.111.111.110
    domain1.com on 111.111.111.111
    domain2.com on 111.111.111.113
    domain3.com on 111.111.111.115

    hosted on one VPS using Direct Admin.

    Their DNS are placed on separate IPs.

    ns1 and ns2 of domain1.com are on ...111 & ...112
    ns1 and ns2 of domain2.com are on ...113 & ...114
    ns1 and ns2 of domain3.com are on ...115 & ...116

    So utiliziing 7 IPs:
    111.111.111.110 <-- shared IP
    111.111.111.111
    111.111.111.112
    111.111.111.113
    111.111.111.114
    111.111.111.115
    111.111.111.116

    So far the domain IPs and NS IPs are separate for each website... but they still have the shared IP in common.

    From what I understand, the shared IP has to resolve to some server name server.mydomain.com ... and mydomain.com has to be a real domain.

    So anyone checking for info on domain1 from my example above, will find that it's sitting on server.mydomain.com ... then they can check for server.mydomain.com and find that domain2 and domain3 are also sitting there.

    Is there a way of concealing this trail? Not for anything illegal, it is just a matter of separating website niches and preventing competitors from finding too much information.

    Thank you

    What exactly is the "shared ip" being used for ?(from your description it isn't used for DNS or the hostname.)

    Anyways you can get yourself an anonymous dyndns type forwarder to the shared ip .. and set that hostname for your reverse dns.

    Or buy yourself a separate domain for that ip address.
