Actually, I want to do just that. The problem is, they want $15 / month
per static IP, and they will only give out two. I want three. That's
$45/month, if I can talk them into those three! While they do offer free
12am to 7am transfers, they do charge $8/GIG otherwise.
Very expensive. I can probably live around the bandwidth costs, but the
IPs... maybe not.
