Correct Setting for IP address

    I'm new at this. I have set up several clients. Each client has one or more domains. The client has one IP address. The quesion is: Do I set Exclusive or Shared for the IP in the Server for IP addresses? Does it make a difference?

    Unless they specifically want their own ip address, then I always use the shared ip address setting because you don't want to be using up all of your ip addresses . . .

    I see. Maybe I'm missing the meaning--so of course, I have additional questions.

    Does it make a difference if the IP address assigned to the client is set to shared or exclusive? And, does that setting affect the domains set up by the client?

    Or is the shared and exclusive setting for the Administrator's use---for example, does shared mean that I could assign the IP to another Client?

    Thanks, Ellen

    Shared ips can be used by multiple clients.
