*** NOTE: Before logging in to your account, you must Email us a list of

How can I tell if I am getting a unique IP? What should I look for to check them?
When I set up space, I get a confirming email in a few minutes with the IP number, so I can either start using FTP to upload the files or use the control panel.
It can take up to 72 hours for the change to be reflected - although I had one this week take around 48 hours (very unusual).
Dave is right - email them and ask them what the IP number will be for each domain name. Incidentally, I set up a link with the IP number as soon as the files are uploaded, just to make sure nothing gets lost in the shuffle.
I am probably paranoid, but I make the nameserver changes myself - I get space set up and that change done the very same hour (not using NSI, however).

Wonder what all this means.
I can have several domains on this account each with it's own IP address so maybe I have to wait until they install my domain
to get the IP.
The IP addresses must be assigned before a domain name can be pointed at them. Email and ask for them to insure that you actually got what you think you got! ;)
FTP or "File Transfer Protocol" is for transfering files. You have CuteFTP. That is FTP with Cute stuck on the front of it to be...well...cute. (It is like buying "Tide" laundry detergent...you have "Cute" FTP.)
SSH or "Secure SHell" is a way to communicate with the server and have your transaction secure. The data is encrypted.
TELNET (I don't know what it stands for) is a way to talk to the server that is not encrypted. (Essentially it is the same as SSH sans the security.)
You would need SSH or telnet to do things like set up rights to your cgi-bin, if you are going to do Perl things. CuteFTP is for you to use to dump your files to the server.
Hope that helps.
