Adding IP Addresses to Your Windows Server (Traditional)
WARNING: We have multiple configuration methods for our servers' networking. To make sure you use the correct procedure when configuring additional IPs on your server, please see Add more IP Addresses.
When you receive additional IPs for your server, you have to configure your server to accept requests from them.
We automatically configure additional IP addresses for Virtual Private Servers (VPS).
