Adding IP Addresses to Your Server

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Liquid Web allows additional IP addresses to be added to your server for a minimal fee. Having multiple IP addresses on your server can be useful when needing to differentiate domains hosted on your server. With multiple IPs you can set up advanced firewall configurations, use different hostnames with reverse DNS and more.

In any case, if you need to add more IPs to your server Liquid Web provides a simple process through our Manage interface.

Add a New IP to Your Server

To add a new IP to your server you will first need to log in to your Liquid Web account. Once logged in to the Manage interface you will see your servers and services listed on the page.

To begin, open the server you wish to add IP addresses to using the [+] next to the server name. Once the server is open, click on the Network button at the top of the server section.

manage.addip

This will take you to the Network tab of the Server Details page. From here, you can control your firewall, public and private network.

manage.addip

Select the Public Network tab to add IP addresses. Enter the number of new IPs you’d like to add in the box labeled “New IPs to Add”. Once filled out you can click the Add New IP(s) button to begin the process.

manage.addip
Note:
When adding an IP address, a server restart is required. A warning box will appear to confirm that you are aware. Click Add IP(s) in this pop-up to confirm and begin the process.

After clicking the Add IP(s) button, you can track the progress in the Notifications section on the left-hand side in your Liquid Web account. After the process completes, the new IP addresses will show on the page. You can make note of them if you want and assign them to your domains.

Note:
IP pricing has recently changed. New IPs are now $2.00 per IP/Month.

While you can add IPs on your own, there is a limit to the number of IPs that can be automatically assigned through Manage. If you find that you need more, simply create a Support Ticket, and we will be more than happy to assist you.
