Getting Additional IP Addresses

Category: VPS.net dashboard &nbsp

VPS.NET allows you one free public IP per VPS, in some cases you might require more, thanks to our powerful user portal for making the process of obtaining extra public or private IPs easy, and above all instant !

Additional IP addresses are not tied by default to any of your VPS’s, the process of deleting or rebuilding a VPS will not remove the IP from your account.
To obtain an additional IP, please login to the VPS.NET portal, and select “Get additional IP addresses

You now must enter the number of IPs you require and select IP’s type – External or Internal, note External IPs carry a price of $1 (£1) per IP per month, you must also select the Cloud the IP(s) will be used on, as they are not interchangeable between clouds.

What is the difference between public and private IPs ?

A public IP is accessible from anywhere on the internet, it’s used to serve your website or other services to visitors, a private IP is only accessible from other VPS’s within the same cloud your VPS.NET account, it’s used to create a private network between your servers or more advanced tasks such as HA and Load Balancing.

Result: Your IP addresses tab now lists your new IP(s), complete with the gateway and netmask info, you must now follow the proper procedure related to your OS/Distro to add them to your VPS.
