    Should not my host know the IP class?

    I have a reseller account with HG. They provide a shared IP
    to all the domains for that account. All I want to know what
    class of IP that is. Should not they give a reply in an one-liner?

    Or it is just that I am being stupid?

    A single IP isn't a class. Like this:

    255.255.255.xxx is not a Class.
    (A) (B) (C) (D)
    A class is a group. So if you had this:
    255.255.255.x1
    255.255.255.x2
    255.255.255.x3
    255.255.255.x4
    255.255.255.x5
    255.255.255.x6

    That would be a set of Class D IP's, as only the D class is changed.

    Now:
    255.255.255.XX
    255.255.253.XX
    255.255.251.XX

    That is a set of Class C IP's, as you can see in the bold, 255.255.255.XX it is different every time.

    This is a set of Class B IP's

    255.251.XXX.XX
    255.252.XXX.XX
    255.253.XXX.XX




    As I said to you earlier on their forums, a single IP can't be a class, a class is a group of IP's which share the same classes.

    Class D IPs have the same A, B, and C class, but different D class.

    So A.B.C.D, A,B,C will be the same for a group of D class IP's, but the D will be different.

    With C Class IP's, both the C and D may be different, however the A and B will be the same.


    Here is some google reading material for you. It should clear up any confusion you have.

    They won't provide A class IP's... if that is what you are meaning. they only provide D class IP's or C Class with their SEO hosting.

    Cody Salter I got the answer from your post on HG forums. Its a Class D IP. Thanks. That was the one-liner I was looking for. Thanks for the explanation also.

    With a Reseller account you can buy additional IPs but according to Cody Salter they are Class D IPs.

    Yes, for the regular reseller accounts, they will be D class. If you wanted different C Class IP's, you would need their seohosting package.

    They are not Class D IPs, they are IPs in the same Class D.
