Subject: RE: IPAddress


Mehariw, eventually down the line, if you want an "ISP" or not, you will likely need a service provider that plugs you into the net. You can't just lease a line and wait for the bytes to trickel through.

If you don't want an ISP persey, you could get an upstream provider, which is generally like a phone company to handle your internet. You would lease an IP from them at the same time.

If you don't want to get it from them for some silly reason, you can lease them from one of the IP Address supporting organizations of ICANN. They are very expensive, and are not guaranteed to be routable form everywhere. I live in North America, so I would use arin, but if you are in Europe or Asia, etc.. This company will be different.

So, unless you are rich and you just NEED to have your own IP blocks, go to Arin, etc.. But if not, just get an upstream provider to lease them.
