I have a Rackspace dedicated box with 15 domains. One of these sites got hit with a potential penalty and now my SEO guys are requesting that a new site I'm adding be on a different class C ip. Rackspace original told me the following:

"In order to get around that, you put a firewall in front of the server, route the different blocks to the firewall and then use NAT to translate between the firewall and the servers."

Now they are telling me it can't be done period! I need to know if this can't be done any possible way or if they just don't support it. Rackspace has been great to me for the past 3 years so I'd hate for this to be the first blemish.

Thanks,

Tim

I'm not familiar with Rackspace ... technically speaking what they told you was correct, but from a practical stand-point I'm not surprised they are unwilling to make such customizations to what is surely a very complex network for just one customer, assuming they even have such addresses available to assign you or could obtain one.

Your best bet will probably be to use a different hosting provider in this situation.

Ok so it is possible but not the standard. That makes sense. Thanks for the clarification.
