I'm not sure what the exact technical terms are, but I want to have a private IP that is not "owned" by VPSville, if that makes sense.

If someone did a whois, or whatever on the IP, I would want it to report that it belongs to a major ISP. I wouldn't want there to be any way/information that shows VSPville is involved in anyway.

Am I making sense?

I am almost sure that VPSVille has to first purchase a block of IP addresses from some authority (i think it is ARIN: https://www.arin.net/), so there is record of who purchased the ip's somewhere. And I think you can enter an IP address and find out who owns that IP.

With respect to that information being revealed from a WHOIS search is not likely - WHOIS reveals who owns the domain name (example.com), unless of course you have a proxy to hide that info.

However, there is a tool called TRACEROUTE (<link>en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Traceroute) - "traceroute outputs the list of traversed routers in simple text format, together with timing information"

So, if your site domain was example.com, I would do a TRACEROUTE and enter the last IP address listed into the ARIN website to see who owns it.

So, it is not common knowledge, but possible.

Why would one need private ips?
