OK, khaskins, here is exactly what you explain to your boss, as I just a moment ago, re-explained to my boss: Yes, you do get the IP number of the person who visited the website. Here is the problem: Most folks DO NOT have their own private dedicated IP number. I got this for my boss to protect him. Take the IP number, khaskins, and go to the website of ARIN and go to tools and enter the IP number in question of your visitor. There you will see most likely a RANGE of IP numbers owned by a company, not a dedicated private IP number. Simply tell dumbo boss that you cannot control people so that they intelligently pay for and obtain a dedicated IP number. The hosting company I chose after a long study, has all these services and no complaints against them anywhere. I have nothing but satisfaction with them. Their server is up 99.9% of the time and sure as h. is never down during a Google Dance. Once in a blue moon they have to update for a short time. This is rare. The hosting company can make or break a site's progress in Google. There are MANY factors involved. If you need to know some more, I will help you, just ask.
