As our account is currently a NAT'd account, would it be possible to change it so that we could have more than one IP ?

Routers and similar machines use what is known as a network address to route traffic through the Internet. Once on a network, the packets will be delivered to 'host' addresses. There is an address on a network to which all 'hosts' respond, which is known as a 'broadcast' address. On any network then there is a network and broadcast address. On a subnet of four IP's then, that leaves two IP addresses free to assign to host machines.
