Can anyone recommend a UFB provider that can offer more than 1 static IPv4 address for a residential based UFB connection (home office), that doesn't cost an arm and a leg?
And a minimum connection speed of 100/50, ideally 100/100, or 200/100, or 200/200
Thanks

Hello... Our robot found some keywords in your post, so here is an automated reply with some important things to note regarding broadband speeds.

 



 

If you are posting regarding DSL speeds please check that

 



 

- you have reset your modem and router

 


 

- your PC (or other PCs in your LAN) is not downloading large files when you are testing

 

- you are not being throttled by your ISP due to going over the monthly cap

 


 

- your tests are always done on an ethernet connection to the router - do not use wireless for testing

 


 

- you read this topic and follow the instructions there.

 



 

Make sure you provide information for other users to help you. If you have not already done it, please EDIT your post and add this now:

 



 

- Your ISP and plan

 


 

- Type of connection (ADSL, ADSL2, VDSL)

 


 

- Your modem DSL stats (do not worry about posting Speedtest, we need sync rate, attenuation and noise margin)

 


 

- Your general location (or street)

 


 

- If you are rural or urban

 


 

- If you know your connection is to an exchange, cabinet or conklin

 


 

- If your connection is to a ULL or wholesale service

 


 

- If you have done an isolation test as per the link above

 



 

Most of the problems with speed are likely to be related to internal wiring issues. Read this discussion to find out more about this. Your ISP is not intentionally slowing you down today (unless you are on a managed plan). Also if this is the school holidays it's likely you will notice slower than usual speed due to more users online.

 



 

A master splitter is required for VDSL2 and in most cases will improve speeds on DSL connections. Regular disconnections can be a monitored alarm or a set top box trying to connect. If there's an alarm connected to your line even if you don't have an alarm contract it may still try to connect so it's worth checking.

 



 

I recommend you read these two blog posts:

 



 

- Is your premises phone wiring impacting your broadband performance? (very technical)

 


 

- Are you receiving a substandard ULL ADSL2+ connection from your ISP?

You'll probably find it easier to put whatever it is into the cloud, Like Amazon AWS.

I've had Hosting Direct give me a /29 on a business VDSL circuit before.  If you get a business circuit they may consider doing it for you.

Snap did /29 ($10) or /28 ($20) on a residential connection. Dunno if 2Degrees are doing the same. 

Prices ex GST, blah blah blah

I don't have this anymore, I'm only hosting web stuff out of home, so I'm using IPv6 and putting CloudFlare infront of it to enable it for IPv4 as well

timmmay: What are you trying to achieve, both at a business and technical level?


For work we host over a dozen servers with Sitehost, and one at HD, and was thinking if its possible to have at least 2 static ip addresses for my home office connection to setup different SSL certs on some webdav stuff to a backup server in the home office, plus routing some backup web sites back to different IP's in the home office (already using virtualhosts on the same IP).
I haven't come across an easy way to run multiple SSL certs from a single IP using debian wheezy/jessie (unless I've missed something).

As per the post above, I'll reach out to 2Degrees/snap to see if they still offer a /29.

SNI is what you're looking for, most things support it apart from very old Android and IE on Windows XP..
On Apache it just works, create multiple <VirtualHost *:443> with ServerName's like you do for non-ssl vhosts.

Why not use IPv6?

I would recommend to go nowhere near that company. I have seen first hand a few shocking situations.

If it's important enough to serve it's probably important enough to be in a data center - I wonder how much colo costs. Redundant internet connections, backup power, the noise of servers, not something I'd personally want at home.

SNI is a good option to make it work though, if you really want to do it.

As already mentioned, SNI is a good solution.  You can also get a single SAN certificate (a SAN certificate has multiple URLs on one certificate).  This also allows multiple SSL web sites to use a single IP address.

Thanks all, I will look at SNI, and talk to 2D in the future if I need multiple IPs.

SNI doesn't work with some older browsers. SAN certs do but until letsencrypt goes live they're more expensive than "normal" single hostname certs.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Server_Name_Indication has a good list of which browsers etc don't support it.

Inspire can do this. Expect to be asked for a justification and pay extra (same with any ISP)

/28 is around $30 per month. It's highly unlikely any ISP will do this on a flat rate or home user service so expect to be on a commercial basis and pay accordingly. It's not like they have to offer this to get business, you know what I mean? What you after is mutually incompatible with getting the cheapest (and crappiest) ISP. If by "arm and a leg" you mean $10-20 per IP address, I'd agree with you, but if it's "I'm whining about ISP X because ISP Y is $5 per month cheaper" attitude, you'd be on the wrong path. Just sayin'. I don't know what your point of view is.

You will also want to get yourself a decent router like a Cisco.
