install Apache and use a service like "" to mirror ports to the server
most ISP's ,very much dislike, a server running on " the last mile"
it might " null and void" your contract

I think you need not 'virtual IP' but a virtual network interface.
Create it with the command
ifconfig eth0:1 netmask
ifconfig eth0:2 netmask
ifconfig eth0:3 netmask
and so on.
