It is quite possible that after you purchase your Dedicated Server, you or your clients will need more IP Addresses. You can easily purchase an addon IP Address from your Dedicated Server's billing account. We will now take a look at how to actually add an IP Address to the Dedicated Machine.

For cPanel:

You can add the IP Address by logging into your Dedicated Server's WHM and going to

WHM > IP Functions >> Add a New IP Address

When adding multiple IP addresses, you must use the Class C CIDR format or the format. Valid Examples:,,

For DirectAdmin:

You can add the new IP Address by logging into DirectAdmin at the Admin Level and going to

Direct Admin > Admin Tools >> IP Management


You will have to purchase the IP Address from the "Add Services/Upgrades" section of your Control Panel and then go to Site Management >> Dedicated IP Addresses to request the IP Address. You can assign a site to it by going to the Site Management >> Subdomain Manager section.

No Control Panel:

Log in as root and then do the following to add a new IP address to any Red Hat Linux-based system, such as CentOS, for example:

cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts

Back up your main config file:

cp ifcfg-eth0 ifcfg-eth0.bak

Then copy the config file for your new IP Address:

cp ifcfg-eth0 ifcfg-eth0:1

Then we need to edit the new config file:

nano ifcfg-eth0:1

The lines you need to change:




Then change the


to be your NEW IP address (it will have your primary IP Address listed, since you have copied the main eth config file)

Once this is done, press CTRL + X then press Y and <enter>

This will save the config file for you and the interface will be ready to be brought up.

This is done with /sbin/ifup eth0:1

Having done this, if you type


you will see that the new interface is up and running!

For Debian-based Linux distributions such as Ubuntu, you will have to edit your /etc/network/interfaces file and have something like this:

auto eth0
auto eth0:1

iface eth0 inet static
netmask ...

iface eth0:1 inet static
netmask ...
