    As long as DNS is updated along with your IP
    address, you can host whatever you desire to.

    There are dynamic DNS services available. I
    believe they usually assign you a hostname in
    their domain. Theoretically, you could use a
    CNAME in DNS to point a domain name at the
    hostname they provide. Has anyone tried this?

    Technically you can assign your own ip if your isp uses dhcp. So if you want a static ip, just assign yourself one.

    Does PPPoE allow the ISP to make you change IPs?

    What do you want more specifically? Do you want to be able to host different second level domain names (eg. www.site1.com and www.site2.com), different subdomains (eg. user1.site.com and user2.site.com) or different subdirectories in the same domains (eg. www.site.com/user1 and www.site.com/user2)?

    To add some cons and pros:
    Different second level domains is the most expensive alternative, since you'll have to buy each domain name.
    Different subdomains is the most difficult to set up, since you'll have to have your own DNS server.
    Different subdirectories is both the cheapest and easiest alternative, but maybe the least professional-looking one.

    actually no-ip.org will do a http redirect so you can really cheat

    for example

    majorwoo.dynup.net will link to my IP, but since my ISP blocks port 80 i have a http server on 1024, which i could link to by using no-ip's http redirect so

    http://majorwoo.hopto.org woudl take you there (not it doesnt currently because a fried loaned me some webspace, but i have done it before)

    a plus is its totally free

    downside is its two layers of redirection, first your browser goes to hopto.org where it is sent to dynup.net who finally sends it to my IP
    majorwoo

    Quiet brain, or I\'ll stab you with a Q-tip.

    I think i pick these:

    Different subdirectories is both the cheapest and easiest alternative, but maybe the least professional-looking one.

    I'm newbie, so could you show me how to set up with the subdirectories one...THank

    Who is hosting your domain?
