Hi there,

I'm running a linux dedicated server.
I have one shared IP address and 3 dedicated ones.

I'm planning on launchaing a new website but I want to hide it from my competitors.

I know that on a shared IP you can do a reverse IP lookup to find out what domains are running there. Question: is there a way to hide it?
If not: if I buy new dedicated IP address, is there a way to find out if the IP belongs to me (runs on my box)?

what would you advise?

You should certainly be able to get your hosting service to set a PTR to the domain you are using. If they won't do that, move to someone that will.
