Is There A Simple Program or App that Resets or Changes My IP Address Frequently?

Hi Guys, I need a very simple program or App that can reset and change my IP address easily and frequently. I started up a small business from home and Im creating several email addresses for my new employees on yahoo and yahoo will only allow a few email address's to be created from a single IP Address. I don't mind paying for a good working program or App that can do this.

Thanks !!
Jon

No, you will have to reset your modem/router.

You could try "Tor Browser Bundle": http://macupdate.com/app/mac/17679/tor-browser-bundle. There is no guarantee that this works because it could, of course, be that someone else was using the same (Tor-provided) IP address for the same purpose just before you.

Your ISP assigns you an IP address; you cannot change it yourself or with an app. All you could do is unplug the modem for a while and plug it back in and if your IP is assigned dynamically, you might get a different one.

What you can do is get a business account with your provider and purchase a small block of IP's to use.

see vendor information in user profile
You could also just get your employees to set up their email accounts from home. That's easier than trying to work around the IP address limitation.

Instead of using Yahoo for your business e-mail why not use your own domain name? Looks a lot more professional and the cost is minimal. I'm always leery of businesses that use Yahoo, Hotmail, gmail, or aol addresses. If it's a tech company, I'm definitely avoiding them.

You can subscribe to a VPN service. I use Witopia. I never connect to any public hotspot (hotel etc) without using a VPN.

In my opinion yes there is I have trialed and tested allot out there well most of them.

HMA (hidemyass) is at the top of the list http://ipaddresshq.com/hidemyass-sof...t-anonymously/ its a VPN (Virtual Private Network) software that runs on your PC or Mac a platform that offers the ability to hide your IP Address. You can select from what location you would like your IP address to show. You can even select a time frame so for example change mi IP address every min and it will do that.

Awesome software I use it all the time, hope that helps http://ipaddresshq.com/how-do-i-hide-my-ip-address/
