Add C-Class IP Addresses To Your Server

A C-Class IP is a semi-static range of IP addresses that are used across the Internet. An IPv4 Address contains four different sections (classes): A, B, C, and D.

An example of this would be the IP address 192.168.1.2, where number one is the C class. When you purchase a C-Class IP from Hostwinds, you will get an IP from a pool of C-Class IP addresses that are available. Normally when you purchase five IPs from Hostwinds, you get them in sequential order like 192.168.1.2,3,4,5,6. What's different about a C-Class IP is that purchase one C-Class IP along with the standard IPs. You would receive IPs in sequential order like this, 192.168.1.2,3,4,5, and a C-Class IP such as 192.184.15.124 that is not in the same class as your other IP Addresses.
