No static IPs

12/06/04 | by [mail] | Categories: computer/tech

I called SBC this morning to see if I could get a static IP address for my DSL. I figured it would be worth an extra $10-15 a month if it would let me get a domain name and start hosting some real sites on my linux box. I talked to 5 different people and finally got someone who could give me a straight answer. The slowest DSL package with static IPs costs $54 / month. That's almost $30 more than I'm paying now, and the connection would be slower than what I have now. He also said that these prices are not negotiable. I guess I'll keep working with what I've got.



wow - that bites.

over here in columbia all the DSL packages have static IP’s.

It wasn’t until I moved over to cable that I had a dynamic IP.

Google dynamic dns

I have a dynamic DNS: prsnmn.hopto.org

But a) when my IP changes it drops and more importantly, b) Brendan can’t use that address because China blocks most dyndnses. A real IP and a real domain name would work better for him.
