When the Manage IP’s tab is selected for an instance, it’ll display the present IPv4 and IPv6 IPs assigned to the instance.
You can manage your IPs, manage the rDNS for your IPs and add additional IPv4 and IPv6 IPs from this tab.
How to Add / Remove Additional IPv4 IPs
To manage IPv4 IPs, click on the button Manage IPv4 Addresses:
The default amount of IPs on an instance is 1. If you’d like to add additional IP addresses, you can select from the available options in the dropdown menu.
Alternatively, if you presently have a higher number of IPv4 addresses, selecting a lesser value of IPs in the dropdown will remove the excess IPv4 IPs.
Once you’ve made your selection, press Confirm.
An invoice will pop-up and display the purchase in a new window. If you don’t have automatic payments setup, a notice will display like below:
Once the invoice has been paid, you’ll receive a notice stating that the addresses have been added.
Viewing Presently Assigned IPs for an instance
The presently assigned IP addresses for both IPv4 and IPv6 will display under Assigned IP Addresses.
How to Add IPv6 IP Space
Each user’s instance is assigned a /64 block of IPv6 IP space. By default, each instance is provided with 1 IPv6 address pre-configured on the instance. If you want to add additional IPv6 space, simply press the button Add V6 IP Address:
The system will then automatically add an additional IPv6 IP address to the instance.
There is no additional cost. You can continue to add additional IPv6 addresses to your instance as needed – at no added cost.
How to Update rDNS
You can update your own rDNS (Reverse Domain Name Service) simply by pressing the Update rDNS button next to the IP address that you wish to update the rDNS for:
Pressing the button will open a new popup where you’ll enter the rDNS value for that IP. Once you’ve added it, press Confirm.
