How do I configure a new IP address on my server?

  1. Log into the MyAccount website
  2. Select ‘Servers & Cloud’
  3. Select your server 
  4. Click ‘Beheer netwerk’ (Manage network)
  5. Add a new IP address and select the ports you want to open 
  6. Write down the internal IP address that is assigned to you

    Complete the following steps to configure your extra IP on your Windows machine:

  7. Connect to your server and go to your ‘Network and Sharing center’ 
  8. Select ‘Local Area Connection’ 


  9. Select ‘Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)’ and click ‘Properties’ 


  10. Then click ‘Advanced’ 
  11. Click ‘Add’ 
  12. You can now add the new IP address with the same subnet mask as for your primary IP 




    Complete the following steps to configure your extra IP address on your Linux machine:

  13. Open the file ‘/etc/network/interfaces’ with the following command:

    sudo vi /etc/network/interfaces

    The file should look like this:

    # This file describes the network interfaces available on your system # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

    # The loopback network interface
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback

    # The primary network interface
    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet static
            address 10.3.5.16
            netmask 255.255.255.0
            # dns-* options are implemented by the resolvconf package, if installed
            dns-nameservers 172.16.2.200 85.255.196.200
            dns-search myinstance.net

  14. Then add the new IP address to the file.

    auto eth0:1
    iface eth0:1 inet static
            address 10.3.5.35
            netmask 255.255.255.0

  15. Now you still have to make the new interface live:

    ifup eth0:1
