How Do I Add More IPs To My Cloud Server?

The reason it says 2 IP address, but only 1 is issued, is because your dedicated IP is included with your service.  Example:  You buy 1 extra IP for $2/mo, you would then have 2 IP’s with your server; your 2 IP’s would include your dedicated IP and the one you just purchased.

Once confirmed, provided you have a payment method already on file, the invoice will be paid and the IP will be added to your server.  Otherwise, an invoice will be generated that will need to be paid prior to activation.

Step 6:  You can now view and manage your IP(‘s) from your instance portal under Manage IP’s.  Your current and new IP(‘s) will be listed under Assigned IP Addresses.
